You can’t see how holy somebody is by looking at their bones or hair. You have to know more about them or about their lives first.

It is kind of like having a picture of your grandma; to somebody else, all they see is an elderly woman, but you yourself know who your grandma is and you know her life, thus, the picture has more meaning.

Of course how much the person means to you is worth more than the actual photograph. It is in the same sense that the fact I understood that she was holy meant more than seeing her relics.

In my last post, I used the word “saw” to mean that they recognized that she lived a holy life (she was canonized a saint), [u:3bqwbtda]and then [/u:3bqwbtda] came to see her relics.

I probably should have said that in the first place. <img decoding=” title=”Smile” />
