Chapel relic

My parish, St. Timothy, installed a relics chapel.  We are blessed to have it.  I don’t know any other parish who has one.

At first when I hard they were installing one, I thought well it’s probably going to have all the big players – St Timothy, St Paul, probably some from St. Francis, St. Therese of Lisieux. So it came to a big surprise to me when I visited it the first time, and found a bone fragment relic from St. Catherine of Siena.

It’s beautifully encased in a monstrance.  It is very small to make out it is a bone fragment, but that does not lessen my time praying with her.

Now after Mass, I like to go to the chapel, stop in and say hello!  It’s funny because as soon as you walk into the chapel you’re surrounded by many Saints, so I like to say, “Good morning, Everyone!”

My prayer lately has been for courage.  I’ve been asking for St Catherine’s intercessory prayer that I have courage to do what God wills me to do.  When I pray to St Catherine, I do feel a sense like I’m in another space in time. I’ve read on her so I know she can relate to my prayer.

I hope that my parish never gets rid of this chapel.  If I’m receiving much from it, I know it has to be for others too.
