The meaning of relics: touching God!

Relics are the mortal remains of saints and blesseds. The reliquaries of Saint Thérèse are visible in the Basilica and in the Carmel (under the shrine).
The journey of the relics of Saint Thérèse initiated in 1994 has visited nearly 70 countries and continues today; the relics of Louis and Zélie Martin have traveled the world since 2015. By venerating the relics, the pilgrim does not only come to “remember”, he comes to meet the Saints themselves. He lived with Thérèse a personal experience, unique, often decisive for his life.
