I received with pleasure your letter dated March 25, 2017 informing the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines that the relics of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus will be visiting the Philippines again from January to May 2018 coinciding with our observance of the Year of the Clergy.
As in the past visits of the relics of Saint Therese, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines delegates with full confidence the Military Ordinariate of the Philippines to be the OFFICIAL HOST of the visit.I am sure that as in the past three visits, the Military Ordinariate will handle the fourth visit of the relics with utmost professionalism and foment deep devotion among our Catholic faithful.
Please be assured of my fraternal esteem and affection.
