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.

In the Cathedral chapel, perpetual adoration of the Eucharist will begin after the 6:30 p.m. Mass on Sunday, September 20 and will continue day and night until 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 24.  Blessed Louis Martin was a leader in the nocturnal adoration of the Eucharist. Unite your prayer to his before the Blessed Sacrament.
