What is this relic?


#1

I have something that says “Ex. SS. Sepulcre D.N.J.C.” I’m assuming it means from the sepulchre of Jesus, but does this mean that it’s an actual piece of Our Lord’s sepulchre, or just a small pebble from the sepulchre’s location? I’ll try to get a picture up soon.

Thanks!

The Latin phrase does mean "from the holy sepulchre of our Lord Jesus Christ." It's probably a stone from the location.
