Pilgrimage of Mercy: the Tour of the Major Relics of St. Maria Goretti-Fr. Carlos Martins Presentation
On the 8th of October, Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish hosted the Pilgrimage of Mercy: The Tour of the Major Relics of St. Maria Goretti.
Father Carlos Martins, CC, a Custos Reliquiarum (ecclesiastically-appointed curate of relics) and director of Treasures of the Church, brought the sacred remains of St. Maria Goretti to OLGC as part of a national tour. An immensely popular saint, it is the first time her body traveled to the United States and only the second time she left Italy. This is a podcast of a talk given by Fr. Carlos prior to public veneration.
