IMAGES: St. John Paul II Relic Visits Benedictine College
, October 17, 2018
Students lined up and patiently waited to venerate a visiting relic of Saint John Paul II on Monday night.
The relic, a drop of blood on a cloth, traveled from the saint’s country of birth, Poland, as part of the John Paul II Project, a Kraków-based initiative combining pilgrimage and study to teach about the pope’s legacy.
The night began with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament…
… followed by a presentation from the founder of the John Paul II Project.
The students then had the opportunity to touch the relic and write down their prayer intentions in a book that will be brought back to Kraków, Poland.
It was a short but beautiful visit from an incredible saint. Saint John Paul II, pray for us.
