Why Relics?


Posted by wendy | Posted in blog | Posted on 18-12-2007

I blog a lot about relics in the past few blogs.

I really didn’t know much about them until I read “Magnificent Corpses” by  Anneli Rufus.  She traveled around Europe to look at all the lesser know relics. She would give a bit of background story about the Saints and talk about what form they are in in her visits.

I remember having a discussion with Mr about relics. He told me that his grandma had them around the house. I never met anyone (except the Mr.) who know someone who owned relics.

The first relic I saw was in Legion of Honor when Mr. and I first started dating.  They had St. Francis of Assisi’s relics.

My dream is to do a tour like the author did of Europe.   And this first trip to Europe prove that it would be something fun to do.
