A New Sanctuary of John Paul II in Linden, New Jersey
A new sanctuary of blessed John Paul II was proclaimed in the United States. The Church of the Polish-American parish of St. Theresa in Linden in the archdiocese of Newark, NJ, was raised to the rank of the sanctuary. The sanctuary was erected by archbishop John Myers on September 29, 2013.
The Church of St. Theresa in Linden has been a place of cult and prayer through intercession of blessed John Paul II for years. In the church there are relics of the Polish Pope and souvenirs given during visits in the parish by cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz, among the others: blood and hair of blessed John Paul II, a zucchetto, mozzetta (papal cape), a rosary. During ceremonies of proclaiming the sanctuary archbishop Myers gave a chasuble in which pope John Paul II celebrated Holy Masses during his pilgrimage to the United States in 1995.
