The Pope visited St. Rose. The skull and bones are dressed up like a Catholic nun.
I have seen a lot of bones and skulls adored and venerated by the Roman Catholic Church. But I never thought I would see these skeletons dressed up like Catholic Nuns. Like St. Rose.
Even an iron ring has been put around her head, to symbolize her lost glory.
Pope Benedict XVI next to Viterbo bishop Mons. Lorenzo Chiarinelli looks at the mummified body of St. Rose inside the St. Rose’s shrine during his visit at Viterbo, central Italy, Sunday, Sept. 6, 2009.
What is the Pope doing here?
What kind of spirits does the Pope submit to, when he pray in front of a skeleton of a lady that has been “preserved”, and dressed up like a nun?
The most bizarre pictures you might ever see are those of St. Cathrine. She is dressed up like a nun, completely, even with the black head cover.
Lets take a closed look at this Italian lady Catherine, whose skull and bones have been made “holy”.
It might be difficult to believe that this is the truth. Please visit this Catholic web-site a look around for your self.
Not all the Roman Catholic ladies have been as “lucky” as St. Catherine or St. Rose, their skeletons dressed up to be adored. The tragic end of St. Agnes might be a warning to us all. Her skull was separated from her bones, and put for display for adoration of veneration inside a golden box.

The skull can be adored and venerated, from outside this glass protected site.
You do not have to be a Roman Catholic priest, to be puzzled by the very idea of this skull being of a female. And you might also struggle to see anything holy about this gruesome sight inside a claimed to be a “Church”.
