In lots of Coptic Churches there are so many relics... and many of them just aren't legitimate... Bought from Catholics who really didn't know if they're who they said they were, or just dug up from a town where everyone was killed and all counted as martyrs, etc. Tiny fragments of bones, some from the person claimed, some not. So some people see these, are taught to kiss them, it seems silly and superstitious, people dislike it... But then many people tell me of trips to monasteries where they have real relics, and the miracles they have, and the way they feel in the presence of them... My church doesn't have any relics, because so many of them are fake, so my priest doesn't go after them. But my priest also talks about the things he's seen, he's definitely not cold about relics, just abuses. Probably a totally different situation in other Churches, but maybe similar things happen?
