Relics: Pious Devotion, Healing Power, or Something Else?
Catholics believe that only God can heal, but that God may in some cases permit healing through physical means, such as a relic of a holy person. The Holy Spiritís indwelling can affect the physical body, and God can work miracles through the bodies of deceased saints. As far back as the Old Testament... Relics: Pious Devotion, Healing Power, or Something Else?
- Fr. Gregory Jensen
The more I follow the online discussions ... the more I follow the debates and disagreements in the Church about administrative unity, or the concerns expressed about the moral or personal or administrative or leadership failings of the bishops or the clergy, the more I become convinced that whatever might be the truth of these concerns, ALL of this is simply a distraction. No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.
