Pam Klainer tipped us off to a website that sell relics or bits of relics depending on your point of view. Something seems distasteful about this:

My sister Wendy found a web site which actually sells Catholic relics, and the site makes much of the authenticity of their items. A rare item with vouched-for provenance such as an Italian Reliquary with a Thread Relic of the Shroud of Turin and Authentics Issued by the Prefect of the Apostolic Sacristy of Pope Gregory XVI and Pius IX in 1846 is on offer for $27,000.


The site is The Russian Store.
