About this Episode

At St. Anthony of Padua, we have the invaluable gift of a plethora of saint relics in the Our Lady of the Angels Chapel. However, there's a good chance we might be just glancing over how much of a game-changer their presence really is in our faith life.

This past week, we announced four exciting new relics that would be joining us, including the relic of Saint Gemma Galgani, a young Italian mystic who lived an inspiring life. On this episode of Beyond the Bulletin, Jay Martin takes a walk back through what a saint relic is and why their important (even while being occasionally gruesome) as well as looks into who Saint Gemma is, what she did during her life, and how we can grow in our own faith through her witness.

We have an awesome opportunity to venerate Saint Gemma, Saint Anthony of Padua, and more relics next week, so tune in to learn about the Communion of Saints!
