Season 2, Devotions with Bishop Dolan, Episode 7: Relics

sanctuary-and-altar-12On this episode of Devotions with Bishop Dolan, too often we have heard the Protestant objections to the veneration of relics as something morbid and macabre, but can we defend their usage and meaning to those who object? Do we understand ourselves as Catholics why the Church uses and classifies relics?

In the finale of Devotions with Bishop Dolan, we discuss holy relics: their history, their meaning, their role in the Catholic Church and their use amongst the laity. What is a relic? What are the proper ways to venerate a relic? How does one go about obtaining a relic? Why are relics on the altars during Mass?

In this episode of Devotions with Bishop Dolan, we will discuss these and many more aspects of the subject of devotions to relics and why the "saints amongst us" provide a proper context to the Catholic spiritual life. Join us as His Excellency, Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great Catholic Church in West Chester, Ohio and host Justin Soeder close out this season's show with a very fitting topic for the month of November.
