St. Therese relics return to the Philippines



On Dec. 15, The pilgrim relics of St. Therese of the Child Jesus will arrive in the Philippines to begin a four-month tour that will include visits to more than 48 archdioceses and dioceses of the Roman Catholic Church in Luzon, the Visayas and Mindanao.

The relics, which are bone fragments of the beloved saint housed in a special reliquary and venerated by the faithful, will travel from the Basilica of St. Therese in Lisieux, France, and will arrive in Manila, with the Shrine dedicated to her in Newport City, Pasay City, as its first stop.

There will be a procession at 4 p.m. on Dec. 15 from Kalayaan Hall, Villamor Airbase, to the Shrine of St. Thérèse, which will be immediately followed by a welcome Mass.

The Military Ordinariate of the Philippines, led by Bishop Leopoldo S. Tumulak, D.D., is the official host of this year’s visit. This is the third time the pilgrim relics of St. Therese will visit the Philippines. The first two visits in 2000 and 2008 were marked with miracles, and thousands of devotees gathered to pray in its presence.

“It is my hope that as she tours the country, we would welcome her with deep faith and boundless love so that we may remember her and her teachings as we strive to live according to the example of Christ,” says Bishop Tumulak.

The theme for this year’s visit is “Witnessing Christ through the Little Way of St. Therese.” St. Therese is renowned all over the world for preaching God’s unconditional love and showing everyone a simple yet meaningful way of deepening their faith, known as the Little Way. St. Therese taught that great deeds are not needed to please God. Small acts of sacrifice done with the greatest of love shall suffice.

For updates on the schedule and itinerary of the visit, please log on to www.ThereseRelics.ph and like the Facebook page www.facebook.com/ThereseRelicsPH. You may also contact the Relics Secretariat at 853MARY (6279) loc. 124, 0917-5060806 or relics3rdvisit@therese.ph.
