A few weeks ago, Chad and I went into San Antonio to take some pics of some stunning and historic churches for an upcoming magazine article. The photo session included three downtown churches and the five San Antonio missions (which, by the way, are now listed as a World Heritage Site!). At the end of the day, at our last stop, I was amazed to see that Mission San Francisco de la Espada holds a 3rd class relic of St. John Paul II! In the crucifix above, the white cloth was taken from a T-shirt left by the Pope when he visited San Antonio in 1987!
