Philip Kosloski | May 26, 2017

The veneration of relics in the Catholic Church is an ancient tradition that dates back all the way to the New Testament. We can find its origins in the life of Jesus Christ (think of the woman who touched Jesus’ cloak and was healed). The Church has always treated the relics of saints in a special manner, preserving them and often putting them on display for the benefit of the faithful.
