St. Simeon the Just

A few weeks ago, we celebrated the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple which we also call the Purification of the Virgin Mary, (not that she is "impure", She was just following the Mosaic Law), and Candelmas.

One of the persons in the Gospel narrative of the event is the holy man, Simeon also known as Simeon the Just.  But did you know that his relic is kept and preserved?

Yup.  This Biblical saint has his relics enshrined in the Church of St. Simeon in Zadar.

You can read more about the story of the relic of this Biblical saint by reading all about it here.

I too thought that there were no relics of him that are kept.
