Why is St. Francis Xavier's Forearm on Pilgrimage in Australia?

To mark the Year of Grace in Australia, a relic of St. Francis Xavier (his right forearm) is touring Australia! But why? In this podcast, Bishop Peter Comensoli talks about the role of relics in the history of the Church, the significance of St. Francis Xavier in Australia, and shares some stories from the pilgrimage of the relic so far.
