The kind nuns who prepared the holy relics gave me a pleasant surprise by giving me the relics of my own patron, St. Anthony of Padua, and St. Dominic.  I am very grateful to the nuns for their hard works and kindness.

Queen of Angels children prayer group this afternoon: we prayed the Rosary in the presence the newly arrived relics in the chapel.
