VATICAN CITY, VATICAN - FEBRUARY 06: Sister Maria Domenica holds the hand of Saint Catherine of Siena (1347-1380) at the cloistered convent of St. Mary of the Rosary on February 6, 2014 in Vatican City, Vatican. The Dominican Nuns of St. Mary of the Rosary monastery supervise relics since the papacy of Pius IX (1860ca). Relics may be legitimately obtained from Church sources, the Vicariate in Rome, the religious Order of the Saint involved and the shrine of the Saint involved. When this is done, a donation is usually expected to cover the cost of the metal container (theca) that contains the relic, but in any case, a profit cannot legitimately be made from the sale of relics by anyone.
