A few days ago, I was able to visit the relics of Saint Padre Pio, which were making a world tour. As a convert, this was very exciting and also a kind of new experience for me!! This year is when I started really learning more about the lives of the saints.
I took a few hours off work and waited in line to see the relics. I noticed people had several rosaries and prayer cards out and such... and I asked someone why, and they told me they will touch their daily rosary/items to these first and second class relics.
So I thought wow! 😍 #convertproblems hahaha I swear sometimes I need a sign that says “I’m a convert - help!” 🤣
Luckily I had my rosary on me and so I was able to touch my rosary and my lady of Guadalupe pin (on my work lanyard) to these first and second class special relics of such a holy saint.
Now it makes my rosary just that much more special and powerful in my eyes.
It is indeed a spiritual weapon! 💪🏼 Saint Padre Pio, pray for us.
All you angels and saints, pray for us.
I am still so grateful for that experience. ☺️🙏🏼
