Ummm. This sounds like Monty Python and The Life of Brian, or Woody Allen and "the holy nose". Sacred foreskins - go to the local synagogue; milk - 7-11; beard hairs - see a barber; sacred footprints - go to Dinosaur National Park an absolutely fantastic place. rocks and a meteor - any Natural History Museum. This is not making fun of what people consider to be items of reverence. I am a fervent Roman Catholic - my children believe I am from the fifteenth century - and I honor our beliefs. They are symbols of Faith

That is not the Virgin Mary on the grilled cheese. It's Jean Harlow, right down to the birthmark on the left side of her chin. Check it out. https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQdodbVltMPMueuyL2fWIRs9IGbL5N6Emtg_w&usqp=CAU

Nothing screams pagan magick more than worshipping umbilical chords and foreskin- I had never heard of the Holy Prepuce, its quite an illuminating relic , not so much in regards to Christianity, but relative to the pieces of the human body humanity as a whole still rever to hold power, it reflects alot upon the human condition in an albeit strange but interesting manner. Throughout the ages placentas , foreskin, breastmilk , umbilical chords, clitorises have all been seen as threatening and yet worshipped throughout the ages because of the power they hold , but i never imagined id be reading about Christ's foreskin in particular. Brilliant issue. It reminded me of the folk stories about witches who would keep penises as pets.
