Relic Exposition

April 14, 2018

On March , 2018, our family was blessed to be able to go to a relic exposition that was held by Treasures of the Church. Father Carlos Martins started Treasures of the Church and travels worldwide with 166 relics of the saints. Many people have been converted from the power of the saints working through their relics, and many people have received healings by praying in front f the relics. All the relics were in small reliquaries and were laid out on tables. You were allowed to pick up the relics, bless yourself with them, kiss them, and tough the reliquaries to your scapulars, medals, and Rosaries to become a 3rd class relic. Most of the relics of the saints were pieces of bone, but there were also relics from pieces of flesh, hair, and fingernails. Here are some of the relics that were there:


  • Fragment of the veil of the Blessed Mother
