St. Toribio relics in L.A.

St. Toribio.

The St. Toribio Relics Tour will be visiting parishes throughout the Southland in July, culminating with culminate with the Immigration Mass July 20 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. 

The relic, a bone from the left ankle of Santo Toribio, is encased in a 4-foot-5 statue of the saint, which was lent to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles by the saint’s home chapel in Jalisco, Mexico. The Mexican-born martyred priest is venerated by immigrants for helping them reach the “dreamed land” safely and achieving success in the United States.

“Santo Toribio was a holy priest, a friend to the poor, and a man who loved Jesus so much that he was ready to die for him,” Archbishop José Gomez said. “This pilgrimage of his relic gives us all a chance to ask his prayers for our families, especially for our immigrant brothers and sisters as they seek the promise of America and to live with the dignity that God intends for them.”

A 5:30 p.m. July 7 press conference will be followed with a 6:30 p.m. Mass, worship and veneration at St. Marcellinus Church, where the relic will remain through the evening of July 9. The relic will travel to five other parishes, including Santiago de Compostela Church in Lake Forest, Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Indio and Sacred Heart Church in Rancho Cucamonga.

Born in 1900, Toribio Romo was a Catholic priest and martyr during the Cristero War, an uprising against Mexico's anti-Catholic government. He was killed in 1928 by federal troops for defending his religious faith. He was canonized on May 21, 2000, by Pope John Paul II.
