I try not to question mannequin limbs I have a few in my house and though I make use of them as hat and jewelry racks Iím not really sure why they are there. I thought perhaps this might be the same sort of thing.

What is it called when they keep holy bones?
I think you are thinking of relics
:thumbsup: Thats it!
Would that make sense with the whole maniquine arm thing? Token Relics perhaps?
I really don't know much about the arms Irr was referring to, but I suspect they are unrelated. Relics are usually the bones, or remains of a saint. Every Catholic church has a relic buried under the place where the alter is. the Lourdes thing sounds mostly like a scam to me, but I may be wrong about their intent. I could easily envision it with a good (if misguided) intent.

But I really am continuing to post far beyond I intended and I think I'll be bowing out once again. If you are ever interested in contacting me via email to talk, I'd be more than happy.

In truth, there are only two kinds of people; those who accept dogma and know it, and those who accept dogma and don't know it.
