#078: Is the Relic of True Cross Real? [Mini-Podcast]

I’m enjoying Rome like you can’t believe. It started with Mass with Pope Francis at the Lateran…and I just keep enjoying the saints, relics, liturgies, and churches after I teach my classes for the Rome Experience at Santa Croce. I have the pleasure of being with some great priests and seminarians.

St Helen and the true cross

St Helen and the true cross

Here’s a mini-podcast I recorded in Rome from outside the Church of the “Holy Cross of Jerusalem” (it’s on the street so you can hear the crazy Italian drivers) where Saint Helen placed the true cross that she found in Jerusalem.

Is it legit? I share the history…and my thoughts – just 3 minutes and 4 seconds:

Please share my journey with me: I’m posting tons of awesome photos of saints, relics, altars, churches, and Roman gelato over at Facebook (photo stream) and Instagram (photo stream).

Question: Is there anything you want me to cover while I’m in Rome? You can leave a comment by clicking here.

Want more podcasts? Great here’s the podcast archive vault. And don’t forget to tap into my new Catholic Apocalypse series. Look for some thoughts soon about the Shroud of Turin!
