Head of St. Andrew in Rome...






Earlier this month, for just a short while, the head of St. Andrew the Apostle was put on temporary display at the Church of San Andrea della Valle in Rome. This relic for many years has been kept in the Cathedral of Amalfi, near Naples. As I touched the reliquary I offered a prayer for every reader of this blog.

Please pray for us whenever you are at places such as the Perpetual Help Icon, or venerating relics of importance. What about going to another Sant Andrea, Sant Andrea del Fratte, where the painting of Our Lady as She appeared to Alphonse de Ratisbonne is supposedly placed in that chapel where the Apparition took place in Jan. 1842?!

Hello,



Thank you for placing my son, Erich H's, name, godchild Michelle C., and nieces, nephews (and those who've requested my prayers) their parents, grandparents, greatgrandparents at the base of the saint's relics for cleansing, healing, protection, deliverance.



Sincerely yours,
Karin S.
