Relics are the bodies of the saints or objects directly connected with them or with our Lord. The council of Trent, 1545-1563, sums up the doctrine of the Catholic Church concerning relics, stating in Session XXV that the bodies of the saints are to be venerated by the faithful. According to the common opinion of theologians, among them St. Thomas Aquinas, relics are to honored with relative veneration which, though directed to the material objects, looks beyoung them to the saints who they recall.
