Old Catholic England (CTS -Mark Elvins)

Touching Wood

this saying has remained popular. It of course originated from the touching of  the wood of the True Cross, the most prized relic. Many a Catholic would venerate such a relic before setting out on a hazardous task.  Today most people are satisfied with touching any piece of wood as a substitute. By tradition the wood of the Cross  was from the aspen tree, which is why it always trembles.
