And they are going to be with us for a few weeks.
Two Italian men and one French woman.
We take it as a great honour that they will be gracing our home with their presence...but who are they?
They are relics (contained in reliquaries) of three great saints:
St Therese de Lisieux - to whom we have a great devotion for many reasons but also because she shares the same birthdate as Mrs Linen.
Pope St Pius X - a Pope who held back the tide of modernism in the early part of the 20th century and who, no doubt, will do so again one day.
And Padre Pio - (thanks to a friend, my devotion to this wonderful saint has been re-ignited in recent months).
The relics have been loaned by our priest who is one of the great priests of our time.
May God bless him and spare him.
If I had been able to choose three saints, I think that I would have chosen The Little Flower, Pope St Pius X and St Pio - that's pretty fantastic don't you agree?
If you could choose three saints as house guests, whom would you select?
