I am hesitant to ask this since several members have been in the hot seat, lately, but I have been wondering about it since I read about it in another thread. Before I ask, I would also like to ask that we remain respectful to each other. Please lets not turn this into an argumentative thread like the others. Once they go downhill, I stop participating, but I would really like answers. Why do people kiss bones of dead saints? I saw a skull on a platter (or pillow) and I googled it to find out about it, which led me to another site that showed other saints dressed up in jewels and posed. I have to admit I was bothered by the pictures that I saw. What is that all about? I'm not sure if I should post a link to the website to show you? I don't want anyone to think I am being critical... my FIL, step-MIL, and a couple of friends of mine are Catholic, which is probably why I have so many questions about Catholicism. I mean no disrespect. Again, please lets not turn this into an argumentative thread like the others.
