Relics of Christ's Passion Coming to Lake Charles
Contact: Denise Murphy, 860-496-0648

LAKE CHARLES, La., Sept. 6, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Eight rare Relics of the Passion, with a unique program focused on the Passion of Christ, will be presented at multiple churches in Lake Charles, Louisiana from September 12th through September 19th.

The program, entitled "Call from the Crucified Heart," is a one-hour presentation of The Passion that couples holy relics with supporting meditations and musical pieces that serve as a guide to help you accompany Jesus through His suffering during the Passion. It ends with personal veneration of the relics. 
 
Collections such as this are generally seen only in Rome or the Holy Land and is something that most people only get to see once in a lifetime. What's significant about this collection is that these relics are brought into a single venue with a unique narration that brings the story of the Passion to life.

The Relics of the Passion collection includes a piece of the True Cross, a piece of the Holy Table, a piece of the Column of Flagellation, a piece of The Crown of Thorns, a replica of the Holy Nail, fashioned using filings from the true nails, a relic of St. Longinus, a picture of the Veil of Veronica touched to the original with a Vatican seal attesting to the fact and a piece of the exterior wrapping for the Shroud of Turin.
