I recently went to confession with a priest at a local church, I do this somewhat often, at least weekly. The priest is from Ghana and presides at a tiny parish in honor of St. Gerard. The little parish is a daughter church of my own home parish.
After confession, I noticed a small reliquiary containing two very smal bones (or what I thought were bones). I asked the priest if knew whose relics these were, but he did not know (he has only been the pastor for about a year or so). I look closely at the tiny print under the relic and it said:
“S. Ger. Maj.”
If memory serves that is what I saw. Tommorow I intend to go to confession with the priest, and I also wanted to make a small “pilgrimage” to visit that relic and pray for the saint’s intercession (I will ask the parish members of course later).
However, I was hoping some of my brothers and sisters here could help me to indentify this relic, or at least direct me to some resources or links which explain how relics are contained and identified in reliquiaries.
Thanks in advance.
