The relics of the saints are venerated because in orthodox belief the body remains temple of the Holy Spirit even after death.
St.Cyril of jerusalem writes:
"Though the soul is not present a power resides in the bodies of
the saints because of the righteous soul which has for so many years dwelt in it, or used it as its minister."
Many of the relics also do many miracles which glorifies god like the body of Saint Nektarios which after he had passed away his body was dripping sweet smelling sweat and never decayed until 20 years after his death.
