The Shrine has set out the relic of St. Charles Borremeo for continual veneration.
St. Charles Borromeo (1538-84) was the Cardinal Archbishop of Milan, Italy. He was also a caring pastor who led his congregation courageously and prudently during the epidemic of 1576/77. While the many of Milan’s nobility fled the city, St. Charles remained enacting procedures to slow the spread of the disease, establishing makeshift hospitals, and attending to the needs of the poor and sick. He used his personal money to cover the cost of his ministry. The saintly bishop never contracted the illness, attributing that to his fasting and prayer.
You may visit the Shrine (if you are healthy and able) to help pray for the intercession of St. Charles and all the Saints during this time of uncertainty. Additionally, The Shrine is planning to stream one hour of Eucharistic Adoration and one hour of St. Charles Relic veneration for those who are unable to visit in person.
