:"Though the soul is not present a power resides in the bodies ofthe 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 [[miracle]]s which glorifies [[God]], like the body of Saint Nektarios which after he had passed away his body emited sweet smelling sweat and it never decayed until 20 years after his death.
