Treasures of the Church: Relics of the Saints PDF Print E-mail

Last Lent, I went to Denver to see the exhibit of saint’s relics called Treasures of the Church.   Treasures is an evangelizing ministry of Fr. Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross, one of the new priestly communities that God has raised up.

The highlight of a Treasures of the Church exhibit is the chance to spend over an hour personally reverencing, praying before, and touching and even picking up hundreds of relics of saints both famous and obscure.

As I touched each relic, I asked each saint to pray for me and for the many needs in my own life and lives of others I was praying for.  Of course, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Dominic and other favorites (St. Frances de Sales, Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Avila, etc.) loomed large but - although I am something of a saint maven - I encountered saints that I’d never heard of before.

I experienced a strong sense of peace, healing grace, and God’s presence while revering the relics, especially the relic of the True Cross.  I sensed rivers of Christ’s redeeming grace flowing from the relic of the Cross.  I felt very refreshed and strengthened by the time I left and carried a sense of God’s presence away with me.  And I am delighted to report that I received a huge answer to prayer a few days later!

I spoke to Fr. Carlos about the source of his relics and found him to be a theologically acute fountain of knowledge about the history and spirituality of relics and the documented history of each relic in his amazing collection of thousands.

The impact of extended exposure to saint's relics can be dramatic, even miraculous.  Fr. Carlos told me of a young girl miraculously healed of a huge tumor and of a wheelchair bound man who walked again after reverencing the Relic of the True Cross at an exhibition.

Take a look.  Attend an exhibit near you.  Invite Fr. Carlos to your parish.  It could be a powerful evangelical moment for your parish!

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
