Treasures of the Church

Vatican Exhibit of Sacred Relics

Wednesday, May 11

6:30pm

Ave Maria Church

An extraordinary exhibit of relics of the Saints will be touring the Diocese of Florida for the month of May. 

Father Carlos Martins, a Vatican-appointed expert on relics, will be here with a Vatican collection of over 160 relics, some as old as 2,000 years. Among the treasures will be relics of St. Joseph, the Apostles, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Maria Goretti, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Faustina Kowalska. There will also be a portion of the Veil of Our Lady and one of the largest remaining pieces of the True Cross in the world. 

Those in attendance will be able to examine and venerate each relic. Throughout history, many healings have been worked in the presence of relics; and thousands have occurred through this ministry. 

Do not miss this opportunity. You are encouraged to bring articles of devotion (such as Rosaries, holy cards, etc.) and pictures of ill friends/family members, which you will be able to touch to the reliquaries as a means of intercession. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Please spread the word!

The Penitentiary has granted a plenary indulgence for attending this exhibit. What an opportunity to help save souls!
