Who got that Vocab?!

reliquiary-bruxelles.jpg

A reliquary (also referred to as a shrine, chasse or monstrance) is a container for relics. These may be the physical remains of saints, such as bones, pieces of clothing, or some object associated with saints or other religious figures. The authenticity of any given relic is often a matter of debate; for that reason, some churches require documentation of the relic’s provenance.

…and in a sentence?

"Son, you’re spilling orange juice all over the place! Raise the hell up from around my reliquaries."
