Will These Bones Live, O Man?

At Patum Peperium, "Father M" (he really is; he's heard my confession before) weighs in with this piece on relics in his blogging place of residence: Ex Ossibus.

What's the deal with relics in the Catholic Church? New Advent has a fine introduction here.

But without a doubt, Fr. John Zuhlsdor gives us a most beautiful article relating realities of life, death, bones, relics and the resurrection in his The Bones of Augustine. Read and enjoy, good reader.

thanks, being a new Catholic, this is the one topic I forget to study, as to prepare a defense.

Thankfully, this hasn't been anything my not-yet-Catholic friends have brought up.

Thank you for the mention!
