Pray in the presence of the reliquary of the Martin family
Venerate the reliquary of the Martin family, the only reliquary of a family in the world. This beautiful reliquary, usually entrusted to the Carmelite Monastery in Philadelphia, contains relics of Blessed Louis and Zélie Martin and of St. Thérèse. Ask them to intercede for your intentions, for those of your family, and for everyone who will be touched by the World Meeting of Families and the Pope’s visit.
