The volume of wood comprised of all cross fragments could if compacted into boards be nailed up to frame an entire church including steeple and balcony. All those wafers and wine chowed down over the years if truly transubstantiated would constitute a cannabalised Christ 800 feet tall.

Your post jogged a memory in my still fogged head (first cup of coffee still). Mark Twain has a similar take in one of his books, maybe Innocents Abroad or Following the Equator, where he says if all the pieces of the "true cross" were assmebled it would be as tall as the pyramids or something similar.
