Relics of Bohemia’s Patron Saint Adalbert find new resting place.
The holy relics of Saint Adalbert of Prague, or Vojtěch as he is known in his native country, have received a new shrine at their final resting place at Prague Castle. Besides the Czech Republic, the legacy of 10th-century Catholic cleric and martyr is honored also in Poland, Hungary and Germany.
A special holy mass on Saint Adalbert’s feast day was served by Prague Archbishop Dominik Duka on Wednesday evening in St. Vitus Cathedral – whose full name is actually St. Vitus, St. Wenceslas and St. Adalbert Cathedral. During the service, a newly made shrine to contain the saint’s relics was blessed and the remains then found their final resting place within the church.
