The other day I wrote (HERE) about the great event of the translation of the relics of two saints to a new and grander location at the Cathedral of the Diocese of Louisville. In that post, I talked about the term “translation”.
That Cathedral in Louisville is privileged to have the full skeletal remains of two early martyrs Sts Bonosa and Magnus.
The rector dropped me a line with a link to photos of the event. HERE
Here is an evocative shot. I note with great satisfaction the ad orientem worship of God for the occasion and the missal being used.
It is a good idea to review the lives of martyrs, the times in which they lived, and the circumstances of their deaths.
Reflect on their witness and then think about the times in which we live.
