A few weeks ago I was in our little Blessed Sacrament Chapel at school praying and thinking.
Since coming to USA I have developed a devotion to St Elizabeth Ann Seton.
She was a married person who became a saint, an Anglican who converted, an American who went to Europe Protestant and came back Catholic, a person who returned to work in schools.
So I thought, I’ll get a nice icon of St Elizabeth Ann Seton for our school chapel, but wouldn’t it be really great to get a relics of her? But where do I get one and how does one go about it?
That night out of the blue a friend emailed me offering me two first class relics for our school chapel: You guessed it–St Elizabeth Ann Seton and Bl. Francis Xavier Seelos. He delivered them last evening, so we’ll embed the one of St Elizabeth Ann in an icon for veneration and Bl Seelos goes in our new altar.
