I don't know which relic is under our altar, but I do remember hearing about this at my First Communion class. The priest had given us a tour of the church and showed us the spot under the altar where the relics were sealed! We all thought it was SOOOO cool to be allowed to go up on the altar.
I knew there were bones there. I thought they were Of the saint/person the church is named of.
Well, I can't speak for all churches, but I'm certain Our Lady (and there are lots of those) can't have Mary's bones...so I don't think that is really the for sure idea. Ours is not Mark, St. F something...gosh I just heard last weekend and I already can't remember, that's how awesome I am...I hear he has something to do with animals? Name anyone????
I'm pretty sure every Catholic altar is supposed to have a relic enclosed in it, usually it's right under the spot where the Consecration happens (and the spot the priest kisses at the beginning of Mass).
