The Shrine of Holy Wisdom Hosts Sacred Relics Expo in Tempe

Oct 29, 2017 02:06PM

The sacred relics of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Pope John Paul II are just two of the 100 holy figures of the 20th century featured in an exposition of sacred relics of saints of the modern era from November 8 through 14 at The Shrine of Holy Wisdom.

It has been the belief from the earliest days of the Christian dispensation that the physical objects (their remains, hair, clothing and other personal belongings) associated with those persons honored as saints carry the “power” of a holy person. Relics are perceived as transmitters of holy power and considered direct links to the sacred. Many believe that saints are present wherever relics belonging to or associated with them are housed.

The public is invited to experience the transformative and healing power of these sainted persons who represent the compassionate and loving essence of Christianity in the modern era. The relics expo is open to the public and is free of charge. Donations, however, are most welcome!

Location: 5025 S. Ash Ave., Ste. B-15, Tempe. For more information, including viewing times, call 480 219-9633 or visit
