      In the same way you should venerate their holy shrines and any relic of
      their bones; for God's grace is not sundered from these things, even as the
      divinity was not sundered from Christ's venerable body at the time of His
      life-quickening death. By doing this and by glorifying those who glorified
      God- for through their actions they showed themselves to be perfect in their
      love for God- you too will be glorified together with them by God, and with
      David you will chant: 'I have held Thy friends in high honor, O Lord.'
