Track Name: holy bones
Holy Bones

Holy bones bring the faithful to their knees. One thousand years ago, St. Hugh severs a finger from Mary Magdalene’s arm and absconds with it from France to England. In the sixteenth century, nuns from Salamanca bury the body of St. Teresa under immovable stones so it can never be returned to Avila. In the nineteenth century devout New Yorkers barricade themselves inside a church with a relic from St. Anne, steadfast until they get their piece, her body divided up so that many can share the holy bones experience. At his death in 622, St. Lachtin was pious, learned and humble, and believers worshipped his arm, enshrined it in bronze, silver and precious stones, preserved it for posterity. Though this reliquary is empty, devoid of time-leathered flesh or marrowless bone, and though it is encased in impenetrable museum glass, will you fall on your knees in gratitude for its enduring and divine beauty?
