The program, entitled “Call from the Crucified Heart”, is a one-hour presentation of The Passion that couples holy relics with supporting meditations and musical pieces that serve as a guide to help you accompany Jesus through His suffering during the Passion. Also included is a perspective on Mary’s suffering as she accompanied her Son to Calvary. The program ends with an opportunity for personal veneration of the relics.

 The Apostolate for Holy Relics, guardians for these relics, is currently engaged in a program tour that has covered as many as 15 states thus far in 2019. Having the opportunity to join in this program while they are here, for an exclusive presentation in the Diocese of Springfield, is sure to be an experience that will help you connect with the very roots of your faith.

 It’s very rare to see a group of related holy relics all in one place as is presented in this program. Collections such as this are generally seen only in Rome or the Holy Land and is something that most people only get to see once in a lifetime.

 

The Relics of the Passion collection includes:

  • A piece of the True Cross which was discovered by St. Helena
  • A piece of the Holy Table from the room where the Last Supper took place
  • A piece of the Column of Flagellation •
  • A piece of The Crown of Thorns
  • A replica of the Holy Nail, fashioned using filings from the true nails
  • A relic (bone) of St. Longinus, the centurion who pierced the side of Christ
  • A picture of (the effigy of) the Veil of Veronica touched to the original with a Vatican seal attesting to the fact.
  • A piece of the exterior wrapping for the Shroud of Turin
