BELARUS: PILGRIMAGE OF RELICS OF ST. THERESE OF CHILD JESUS PLANNED FOR 2013
(Sir Europe - Bratislava) - Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Russia – after all these countries, the relics of St. Therese of the Child Jesus will come to Belarus. Their pilgrimage is planned in Catholic parishes for summer 2013, based on the initiative of the Discalced Carmelites Order. “In the first place, it is important for the renewal of spiritual life in our country. We can say that St. Therese is very well known and venerated in our region – in many places there is an icon of her, holding petals of roses in her hands”, explains Sergei Tristen OCD, expressing hope that the pilgrimage of the relics will be a significant event for the faithful of all dioceses.
