June 2 - 3, 2012: Relics of Mexican Martyrs at San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio, Texas



 

 Relics of six Knights of Columbus canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2000 are on tour to several U.S. cities. San Fernando Cathedral will host the relics beginning with the Saturday evening 5:30 p.m. Mass on Saturday, June 2, and they will be on display for veneration by the faithful after the regularly scheduled Masses on Sunday, June 3, at 8 a.m., 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., and 5 p.m.

 

The six priests — Fathers Pedro de Jesús Maldonado Lucero, Miguel de la Mora de la Mora, José María Robles Hurtado, Luis Bátis Sáinz, Rodrigo Aguilar Alemán and Mateo Correa Magallanes — were all martyred for their faith by the Mexican government during the religious persecution in Mexico in the early 20th century.

 

Relics have long been a part of Catholic devotional practice. Since the days of the apostles, Christians have preserved and honored the physical remains of men and women recognized as saints.
