A few days ago my wife and I, together with many friends from my own parish, visited another church in my vicinity. The church was packed with about two thousand people who came from different parishes from all over Toronto and the neighboring cities. It was a once-in-a-lifetime occasion. Many saints in heaven and many Catholics on earth converged at St. Patrick Church in Markham, Ontario, on March 5, 2012.
There was recently a Catholic activity called Expositions of Sacred Relics that took place in some parishes in Toronto, and in some neighboring cities as well. It was said that there were 160 relics. I touched many of them with my Rosary. The most prominent of them include: a piece of the True Cross of the Lord; a piece of the lance that was used to pierce through the Sacred Heart; a piece of the crown of thorns that was put on the Lord’s head; and the veil that belonged to Holy Mary. My Rosary also touched the relics of the ‘celebrities’ such as: St. Joseph, the eleven apostles, St. Paul, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Dominic, St. Augustine, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Faustina, etc. There were too many to be mentioned.
