Episode 132: Holy Relics – Part 1

Topic starts at: 21:16
– Holy relics are very real and they’re not as obscure as you might think. Believe it or not, as you’re reading this episode description, you’re probably not too far away from an actual, bonified, holy relic! Broken into three categories, the purpose of holy relics is to call our attention to the saints, to the lives they lived, and to remind us that we, too, should live as the saints did; with the theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity, and the cardinal virtues of prudence, justice, temperance, and fortitude. Holy relics are beautiful things, many of which have mythological and utterly brutal backstories! A perfect topic for the Supernatural Occurrence Studies Podcast!
