The Veneration of Relics

   

   

Some relics venerated in my country, Malta.

The veneration of relics is not just a bizarre religious practice of Medieval Catholicism. It is still practiced today. The Catechism of the Catholic Church acknowledges the veneration of relics as a form of piety and popular devotion among the faithful.

In my country one can find scores of relics exhibited in churches; they are also carried in solemn religious processions. They include bones and blood, or some object or piece of cloth that had touched a saint (though the authenticity of some of them is doubtful). Devout Catholics kiss and touch them, just as I used to do when I was a child, in the hope that through them and the intercession of the saint, God will grant them a grace, a healing or even a miracle.
