    PEORIA, IL (CBS/WMBD) -- A bone from the body of religious figure Mary Magdalene is making a stop in Peoria.

    The traveling display comes from France and it's making its way through catholic churches across the country.

    Leaders say seeing the relic is a once in a lifetime opportunity. One catholic who had a chance to see the display says she agrees. She says, "We have a piece of bone from Mary Magdelene and that's amazing because it's a part of her earthly body. Because she's in heaven and that she's here in my church."

    The traveling display is making a stop in several central Illinois locations.
