A GREAT idea in The Catholic Herald: Benedictine call for the donation of relics.

For both your Just Too Cool file and your Brick by Brick file, this comes from the full, online digital edition of the UK’s best Catholic weekly, the Catholic Herald.

For Catholic Herald Digital:

£40 for an annual subscription.  (I am working on getting a promo code for Fr. Z readers!)

    When the Benedictines at St. Augustine’s in Ramsgate were uncanonically auctioning their entire church monastic goods and relics, including some things like a chalice from the Recusant times, which were taken out of the sale at the last minute because laity and some priests protested, it is too bad people did not buy things for the other abbeys, like St. Michael’s. I would hope some of those precious things will make their way to Farnborough.http://supertradmum-etheldredasplace.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/begging-because-of-sacrilege-if-someone.html

    Even though I’m in the U.S., I would TOTALLY subscribe if Fr. Z can make the whole “promo code” thing happen!

    Ushaw College, the seminary in the North East of England, was recently closed, and is now used by the University of Durham. It used to have many, many relics. Whatever happened to them? Who is responsible for such things on such occasions? Could they find their way to Farnborough? I think we should be told…

    It’s a pity the CH didn’t keep up the excellent offer of the online version for a very low price over the last couple of year; something like £10 – but you can pay the £40 in 4 x quarterly payments which is a bit kinder on the pocket! Well worth it though.

  5. Supertradmum says:

    I read the paper edition almost weekly, as I have access to free copies, although I have bought the odd one when the freebies went missing. It is expensive.

  6. Suburbanbanshee says:

    When something closes that is run by a diocese, the relics go back to the chancery. If it’s run by a religious order, they send them back to the motherhouse. There’s usually somebody in charge of this.

    Admittedly, it would be nice to keep the faithful posted on these things.
