Thousands flock to pray before relic

A relic of St. John Vianney, Cure of Ars, was recently in Boston at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, St. John’s Seminary, and St. Mary Parish in Waltham.

At St. Mary’s alone, 5,000 people came to pray before the relic, the saint’s heart. People who were there last Friday told me the line to get into the church was hours long and that the people who stood in it were calm and prayerful, even praying the Rosary as a large group several times.

It’s good to hear about good events in the Archdiocese like this.
