    In honor of the Year of St. Joseph, which ends on Dec. 8, the Diocese of Rome has allowed the two relics to tour Catholic parishes around the city.


    ROME — The holy cloak of St. Joseph, a unique relic of the foster father of Jesus, has traveled from church to church in Rome this year after spending 16 centuries in an ancient Roman basilica.

    The cloak, which tradition says was brought from the Holy Land to Rome by St. Jerome in the 4th century, is accompanied by a still-colorful veil held to have belonged to the Virgin Mary.


    Both relics were hidden in Rome’s Basilica of Sant’Anastasia for more than 1,600 years, until 2020. It is believed that St. Jerome may have celebrated Mass in the basilica, located close to the Circus Maximus.

    In honor of the Year of St. Joseph, which ends on Dec. 8, the Diocese of Rome has allowed the two relics to tour Catholic parishes around the city.
