CWN Editor's Note: Harvard University has chosen to keep a relic of St. Sebastian in storage, rather than offer it to the Church.

The Catholic Action League of Massachusetts questioned why the university’s Houghton Library does not turn over the relic to the Catholic Church. C.J. Doyle, the group’s executive director, pointed out that Harvard had recently handed over the remains of former slaves, which had been in the university’s collection, to their descendants.
