Mel Strazicich, Anacortes, and Brother Maricio Torres from Columbia.

Brother Mauricio Torres of Totus Tuus, from Columbia, has a piece of material replicating Our Lady of Guadelupe's mantle. This material was then touched to the Tilma in Mexico City, making it a 3rd class relic. This veil is then placed over the heads of 4 people at a time and they are prayed over. Many rest in the Spirit, or feel "something". Brother Mauricio also brought a 1st class relic of St. John Paul II. The art work is done by David Wickersham, Tumwater.
