Blessed Carlo Acutis relics tour to stop in archdiocese

Blessed Carlo Acutis touched the world with his devotion to Christ in the Eucharist, documenting eucharistic miracles around the world and cataloguing them on a website he created.

This week, the relics of the teenager who died of leukemia in 2006 will make a stop in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.
