The Path of Light

la-petite-et-la-grande-sainte_therese-d_avila-a-lisieux-mars-2015-chemin-de-lumiere-peregrina-juan-correa-xviiThe day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday here in the states, but for us, and for all the faithful who gathered at the Basilica of the Little Flower it was a day of light.  We went there to see the walking cane of St. Teresa of Avila, which is traveling the globe as part of the fifth centenary celebration of her birth.  This “pilgrimage” of her second-class relic is called the Camino de Luz, the Path of Light, and it will span six continents and  30 countries before it closes in March of 2015.  The walking cane is visiting only three cities in the US, so we are incredibly blessed to have San Antonio selected as one of those cities.  I’m sure the intercession of the Little Flower had a lot to do with that.

We were given an extra special gift by Fr. Luis – he let us hold the relic!  We couldn’t believe it, it was such a blessing for three Franciscans to be so close to the often used relic the great Saint Teresa.

  1. can you please tell me after new Zealand where is the holy cane relic ot our holy mother st Teresa going too. can you please map out the journey for me or send me the website thank you god bless

  2. I did not know St Theresa’s relic was in town until this morning. So sorry I missed it. However, how appropriate that you were able to actually hold it! Continuing the legacy of founding of new convents. To borrow from Mother Angelica, “Awesone!”
