Several years ago I was asked to come and pray with an elderly woman. Knowing I made rosaries for charities as well as mission rosaries, she offered me an old box full of religious articles, including many antique rosaries.
As I was looking through the box later that evening I found an old cross. I had seen this type of cross before when a child. A nun showed me. On the bottom of the small cross was a brass screw. When the screw is removed, the back of the cross opened to reveal a first class relic of a saint.
This particular cross contained a relic of St. Dominic. This relic is on view at every mass and prayer session.
My parish is the Good Shepard Mission in an area known as Whetstone, Arizona. (Southeastern Arizona, about twenty miles west of Tombstone on state highway 82, or a mile west of highway 90.) If you are ever in our area, please join us for Mass every Saturday evening at 6:30 pm local time, and every Tuesday evening at 6:00 pm for adoration.
