Father Richard Kunst
It is not uncommon for me as a priest to get questions about relics either through papalartifacts.com or in the parish. People will bring me some relic and ask if I can give any information about it, and I usually can help them out. Often these relics are damaged, or as we say, “distressed,” and most often there is no documentation with the relic which is most unfortunate.
With this in mind I would like to draw my website’s visitors to https://www.sacrarelics.org/
My good friend, Sean Pilcher, is an expert in all things relics. He fixes distressed reliquaries, and he is authorized to produce proper documentation for authentic relics which is of great importance.
His website is also full of good information about Catholic relics in general, and he has proven to be a good resource for me personally. I encourage you to check out his site and reach out to him if you are in need of assistance with your relics.
Sacra: Relics of the Saints is an apostolate established to promote the veneration of sacred relics. Sacra works with religious communities, dioceses, and archives to identify, document, authenticate, and repair relics.
Our team also does consultations for postulators and religious superiors to prepare relics for veneration and aids parishes in acquiring relics for their parishes. The apostolate has custody of numerous relics, and an even larger library of references, resources, and contacts.
Sacra provides education about the theology of relics and hosts events to give the faithful a prayerful experience of the presence of the saints.
