A time of grace for England and Wales
At the request of Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor and the bishops of England and Wales, the relics of St. Thérèse of Lisieux visit our country from 16 September to 16 October 2009.
St. Thérèse is an important saint of the Catholic Church. She died aged just 24 and suffering seemed a constant part of Thérèse’s life. For her it was a way of imitating Jesus in his love for his Father and for all of humanity.
To date the relics have visited over 40 countries around the world, including Brazil, Russia, Kazakhstan, the United States, Ireland, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Burkina Faso, Lebanon and Iraq. Wherever they have gone, many people have experienced conversion, healing, a renewed sense of vocation, and answers to their prayers.
On this blog we’ll be posting updates, images, audio, video and more.
