Singapore Polytechnic Catholic Relic Hunters

Grace and Peace of the Risen Lord!

Nicholas Tan suggested how about we create a group under the umbrella of the SP Catholic Students' Society, called the SP Catholic Relic Hunters! =P

Relics of Saints can be divided into different categories. First Class relics are things like the Saints' bone, hair, skin, fingernails or things that's related to Christ, like the True Cross of Jesus etc. Second Class relics are things that the saints used when they're on earth, like their cassock, their clothing, their veils, etc. Third Class relics are generally cloth touched to the First or Second Class Relics. It need not be cloth actually.

Relics do not contain magical powers. Relics of Saints help us to better adore God, the God who created all these holy men and women!

St. Jerome, the biblical scholar said: "We do not worship, we do not adore, for fear that we should bow down to the creature rather than to the creator, but we venerate the relics of the martyrs in order the better to adore him whose martyrs they are"

If the "SP Catholic Relic Hunters" are serious, I suggest we hunt and be custodians for the First Class Relic of St. Thomas Aquinas, Patron Saint for Students! Prayer is the key to finding relics.

Facebook Relic Albums, if you're interested!

O St. Thomas Aquinas, Pray for us !
