The Relics of St. Thérèse

leave a comment »

A Carmelite nun from the late 19th Century, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, despite dying of tuberculosis at a young age, made an impact on the faithful when her manuscripts were distributed posthumously.

The Basilica of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, consecrated in 1951, was dedicated to her. The basilica sees over two million visitors a year, with Pope John Paul II making a pilgrimage in 1980.

The Relics of St. Therese have toured the world for years and, most recently, were on display in Bacolod City, Philippines. Before Bacolod City, the relics toured various cities throughout Negros Occidental.

The Relics of St. Therese have visited Bacolod City three times.
