The Catholic spiritual leaders are called priests or ministers. Their sacred book is the Bible which was divided in the Old and New Testaments. Holy days such as Easter and Christmas are important milestones in the Western secular calendar.Roman Catholic believe in the capability of relics, the physical remains of a sacred place or sacred person, or objects with which they had contact, that belief spread worldwide. Relics were more than mementos, based on the New Testament the healing power of objects that were touched by Christ or his apostles.
The body of the saint provided a spiritual tie-up between life and death, between man and God: "Because of the grace remaining in the martyr, they were inestimable treasure of the holy congregation of the faithful." Powered by the Roman Catholic belief in the afterlife and resurrection, in the power of the soul, and in the role of saints as crusader for humankind in heaven, the veneration of relics in the Middle Ages came to rival the sacraments in the daily life of the medieval church. Indeed, from the time of Charlemagne, it was mandatory that every altar should have a relic.
All relics granted honor and privileges upon the owner, and monasteries and cathedrals sought to carry the sacred symbol of faith, some of these were even stolen from churches, only to find a new home in another. The holiest of relics were those related with Christ and his mother, because of the faith in the resurrection of Christ and the bodily assumption into heaven.
