FROM the initial enthusiasm in Western Australia, the Australian tour of the relics of St Therese of Lisieux looks set to take the nation by storm.
St Therese, in life and now in death, has led people to God in her own special way for more than 100 years.
Now Australians have an historic opportunity to discover the spiritual guidance that people have gained from this saint.
Many Australians may consider inspecting a saint’s relics somewhat unusual, but the experience surrounding such a visit promises to be spiritually uplifting.
St Therese wrote: ‘I would like to travel all over the world, to preach the Gospel in other lands.’ She never fulfilled that dream in her lifetime but this is precisely what she is doing now.
Don’t miss St Therese’s relics when they visit your diocese.
