Relic

[Posted on an old blog, November 13, 2010, Feast of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini]

This is the perfect day to reprint this post from one of my old blogs.

I came across this story a few years ago. I’m not sure if it is true.

An elderly woman approached her priest and asked, “Father, is it true that anything touched by a Saint is considered a relic?”


“Yes,” said the priest, “anything definitely known to have been touched by a Saint would be considered a Third Class relic.”

And the old lady said, “Well! I was once spanked by Mother Cabrini!”

That’s one relic I would not care to kiss!
