Bones/Relics of a Saint go on Display: St Therese Carmel Benoni

(Southern African Catholic Dispatches)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Perhaps a bit airy for some, the bones/relics of St. Thérèse the Carmelite nun, of Lisieux, France known as The Little Flower have arrived in South Africa's most powerful city, Johannesburg.

For the itinerary, details and more: visit:!/event.php?eid=132522856767512

Here are some photographs of the visit so far, supplied to South African Catholic News Service, by the Archdiocesan News, Archdiocese of Johannesburg, with the usual permission for us to publish them:

Two monks, a priest a businessman and a coffin? St. Therese in a open boot of a motorcar!

Pall Bearers? Knights of Da Gama carry St. Therese's bones!

A mass of nuns Gather to hear a priest say mass? By Saint Therese!

Read Out Loud? Yes, everyone is reading: what happened to memorising, and can they all read the lines? All pertinent questions! And if you want some of them answered: you may want to attend a similar event at your parish!

No bone to pick: the public worship Saint Therese, touch the glass covering protecting her [In Catholic doctrine the word Worship is used for high respect: such as that given living and dead saints, or to a good person, while the phrase Adoration refers to the Worship/Latria: due only God]!

Never too young to pray over old bones: a young girl child and two adults pray, as Saint Therese' coffin's glass covering is touched lightly in apparent prayer: and veneration.

Saint Therese should come to a parish near you: follow the Facebook link to confirm your presence, and for the itinerary, and additional important details. Remember to check that the itinerary has not changed, with your local parish, if it is listed!
