The reliquary containing the tibia of St. Mary Magdalene

.- A French priest has brought a relic of St. Mary Magdalene on its first visit to the United States to share the story of the relic and the saint who is recorded as the first witness of the Resurrection.

Fr. Thomas Michelet, a Dominican priest, is touring with the permission of Bishop Dominique Rey of Frejus-Toulon, the relic’s home, EWTN reports.

A letter of authentication from Bishop Rey reports that the relics were hidden at the time of the Saracen invasions and rediscovered in 1279, from which date they have been venerated without interruption.

“They are presently kept by the Dominican priests in the cave of St. Baume, a part of my diocese. A new reliquary has been constructed to allow one of the relics, a piece of the tibia, to travel to different countries for veneration by the entire Church.”

Fr. Michelet will appear on a special EWTN Live with Fr. Mitch Pacwa on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 10 p.m. Eastern Time.

“EWTN is honored that the relic will be coming to the Network and that viewers will be able to not only see one of the relics, but to listen to Fr. Michelet discuss its storied history,” commented EWTN Executive Vice President Doug Keck.
