Veneration of Relics
Two relics will be available for veneration at Congress. First, visit a relic of Blessed Carlo Acutis, an Italian teenager whose devotion to the Eucharist was the center of his short life. Blessed Carlo died of cancer at the age of 15, but used his time on earth and his skills with technology to draw others closer to Christ. Learn more here. https://carloacutis-en.org/
The second relic is from Saint Manuel González García, also called the Bishop of the Abandoned Tabernacle. When St. Manuel arrived at his first parish, he found it abandoned with spider webs in the tabernacle. He proceeded to dedicate his life to bringing life back to the church and encouraging devotion to the Eucharist. St. Manuel asked to be buried at the foot of a tabernacle.
