I believe there was a good trade in 'holy relics', bones/hair/bits of true cross etc? Maybe I'm in the wrong business? Of course, the smartest one was St Micheal. I'm sure we've all worn some of his designer gear at some time? That's something that really gets to me, what is all this c**p about 'des...

There's nothing wrong with shameless plugs! It'll be quite some time before I'm ready for any of that, but when I am I'll be back to you. Any info on how to use it and what for would be handy too.
Cheers.
