2nd June 2009 Other important objects considered to be sacred by Catholics are (a) the church, because it is where the people meet for prayer (b) the altar because it represents Christ as the focal point of the church (c) the cross as it reminds Catholics of the sacrifice of Christ. Catholics are supposed to bow whenever they pass the altar or the cross hanging in the church. (d) the vessels used in worship - the chalice and bowl - are also considered to be sacred as they are used to hold the Body and Blood of Christ and must never be used for any other purpose. Catholics also consider the human person (body and soul) to be sacred as all life is a gift from God, and the body believed to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Less sacred are certain objects such a statues, crosses to be worn, rosary prayer beads, prayer books and religious paintings. == == == ==

For Catholics, Orthodox and Anglicans the altar itself is the most sacred object as it represents Christ Himself. Sacred objects places upon the altar: chalice for the wine and ciborium (dish) for the bread which, through the power of the Holy Spirit, are to become the Body and Blood of Christ. Other "non-sacred" objects on the altar would be the book of service and possibly flowers and candles.

Hera's main three sacred objects were the peacock, the cuckoo bird, and the pomegranate. However, lilies and cows were also frequently to represent the mother of the gods.

"Sacred" implies the involvement of a deity. Buddhism has no deity. Therefore no object is sacred in Buddhism. Buddhism has symbols like the eight spoked wheel, but these are neither real objects or sacred. Buddhism has relics but these are souvenirs and aides memoires for Buddhists to help them focus in meditation.

Of course not. Catholics consider Muslims unbelievers. All religious believers will consider themselves as true believers. However, Muslims don't consider Catholics, or Christians in general, unbelievers. Muslims consider Christians (as Jews) people of the book because Musilms believe in the holy books of the Bible and the Torah.

The term sacred usually means "important to a deity. As Buddhism has no deity there can be no sacred objects. There can be relics of revered persons, important locations, etc.

2 Timothy 3:16 , All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching , for conviction, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.The most Sacred in all we can consider. The Bible came from our Holy Almighty God so we must consider it Sacred. We can not fathom it actually, the Bible mysteries are infinite.
