The scope of the humanity

The aim of humanity is to become like God, to become holy, to acquire the grace of the Holy Spirit. When you come close to God and become a saint, your grace is so great that it remains in your relics even after your soul departs for death. This is why the church is nothing other than a ‘factory’ producing holy relics.
