    Stupid Question: How, exactly, does one suppose or know that it is a real piece of THE cross?

    I would think, in general, that relics of any sort would be ripe terrain for the usual fraudsters.

    Sincere veneration, even if mistaken, is still vituous I’m sure, so perhaps nothing really turns on the answer. I’ve just always wondered….
