grammarman, lighten up!
I used an alliteration. Look it up if you need to.
The word “souvenir” has French origins and means “to remember.”
I’m not really into cheap do-dads, so they weren’t on my mind when I posted. Our Lord rebuked the Pharisees for asking for a physical sign of his divinity (Matt. 16:1-4). When I read of relics, including the shroud, I recall His words.
We are to live by faith, which means being sure of what we believe without needing physical artifacts to “remember” — i.e. “souvenirs.” (Hebrews 10:35- 11:3 ff).
Assuming you’re a Christian, we’re on the same side, so take a deep breath, calm down, and have a happy new year.
