ebay sells relics

Current status: complaints, please, to ebay.

Contrary to its own rules forbidding the sale of body parts, ebay is refusing to stop the sale of relics of the saints, including those clearly described as bones of the saints.

See here for a news story. In April 2005, ebay was forced to ban the sale of consecrated hosts, after an international campaign by Catholics; see here for that story.

A campaign against ebay has been launched by 'International Crusade for Holy Relics'; their site includes a pdf on the issue.

Please complain to:
Meg Whitman, President and CEO, eBay Inc., 2145 Hamilton Avenue, San Jose, California 95125
Phone: 1.800.322.9266

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
