Perhaps a little off topic, but…
I have a rosary from the Vatican. The emblem directly above the Crux has a relic from a saint sealed inside it. I believe it is simply a piece of her clothes. Unfortunately I only discovered the rosary a week ago. It’s my mother’s and she told me the name of the saint, but I have forgotten ” title=”Smile” />
As such the relic holds no value to me. Perhaps if I knew more of the person’s life I could make a better connection while praying the rosary.
So I would agree that the importance/power of a relic is relative to how you relate to the person it remembers.
