The following comes from an Oct. 23 email from one of our readers.
Over 150+ relics will be on exposition and available for veneration by the faithful this Saturday, Oct. 26, 5pm at St. Thomas More parish in San Francisco.
5:00 pm Mass and then veneration of the relics afterward. This specific effort has been endorsed by His Eminence Cardinal Burke and many others.
Here is a complete list of the Saints relics on exposition this Saturday.
Over 150 relics will be shown, some believed to be as old as 2000 years.
Among the treasures will be relics of St. Maria Goretti, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Faustina Kowalska.
In addition, there will also be present a piece of a veil which is believed to have belonged to Our Lady and one of the largest remaining pieces of the True Cross in the world.
The exhibition is presented by Father Carlos Martins of Companions of the Cross

Read the Jan. 2013 story in the National Catholic Register on Father Martins and the relics.
There is a wire crossed somewhere. The link is to a January 2013 article and there is no mention of this event on the parish website.
I went to the event this past Saturday at St. Thomas More and it was awesome — very spiritually impacting and many people there.
St. Margaret Mary (Oakland CA) is also hosting Father Martins and the collection of relics (it is a healing ministry by the way) on Monday, November 4 following the 6pm Holy Mass.
Please go and bring friends and family members. It is a very special, perhaps once in a lifetime, opportunity to get physically close to so many beloved saints and intercessors.
