Mr. Peperium

Or, to misuse one of Cardinal Newman's best one-liners: "To be deep into history is to cease being Protestant". I've spent years visiting battlefields, drawing inspiration and courage from the unit markers along the farm lanes and wood lots of Antietam and Shiloh, or gazing on the uniforms and accoutrements displayed behind glass in museums. So when it came time to make a decision between the Church of England in America and The Church Universal, the latter's veneration of relics, of the greatness in it's own past as a doorway to it's future greatness, made perfect sense. Basically, the same thing I was after at the battlefields and museums, but in pursuit of a much greater goal.

How blessed that you've been able to visit Fatima, and what a lovely description you give of this little chapel. I hope one day to make a pilgrimage there myself.

Thank you, Father M, for an interesting and delightful post that is helpful for this convert's understanding of relics.
