While on a pilgrimage we stopped at Dubrovnik. You would fall in love with this Adriatic Sea town of which St. Blaise is the patron. The little port city is surrounded by a large defensive wall to keep out invaders and in the wall are seven statue's of St. Blaise. Pretty smart if you ask me.
Anyway, in the Dubrovnik Churches are relics. You can see more relics in one room than you will see the rest of your life. Father Mark and I were looking at the relics when we saw St. Thomas' hand.
Boy, was it small. Then it dawned on me.
"The size of St. Thomas' makes perfect sense Father."True Story! Seeing all of those relic and beautiful Churches is awe inspiring.
"What do you mean?"
"If you were going to have someone probe your open wounds wouldn't you want them to have small hands?"
Do you use relics?
