Large crowds have flocked to venerate the Relics of St Anthony as they are being brought to various churches throughout Ireland.

The ‘pilgrimage of the relics’ arrived in Adam and Eve’s Church, Dublin, on Saturday 19 October and throughout the day thousands stood in line to venerate the relics of ‘the world’s favourite saint.’

Our photo shows Franciscan novices Brothers Ronan and Richard assisting during the veneration.

The two Masses celebrated during the day were full of enthusiastic worshipers.
