Pieces of John Paul

Hopefully it's no surprise to anyone that the cause for canonization of Wojtyla Magnus (or is it Amatus now?) continues apace.

The Vicariate for Rome, which is charged with the bulk of the preparations and research on the life of the late pontiff, has bulked up its website for the cause, and just in case anyone didn't know they were so easy to come by, the relics are being distributed free of charge to anyone who writes:
The relic is a small piece of one of the white cassocks worn by Pope John Paul.

The free cards and relics can be requested by letter, fax or e-mail, she said.

The e-mail address is:; the fax number is: (39-06) 6888-6240.

The mailing address is: Postulazione Giovanni Paolo II, Vicariato di Roma, Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano 6A, 00184 Rome, Italy.
