Relic of True Cross stolen from Boston cathedral
July 13, 2010
A relic of the True Cross was stolen from Boston’s Cathedral of the Holy Cross on June 30 or July 1, according to a Boston Globe article published on July 13. The relic was given to Boston’s first bishop in the late 1700s.
“We are deeply troubled that this sacred relic was stolen, and we pray for those responsible,’’ said Father Kevin O’Leary, the cathedral’s rector. “We ask the faithful of the Archdiocese of Boston to join the cathedral’s parishioners in praying every day for its return.’’
