Praying before a box with a skeleton named “St.Thomas”

On December 2009 this Catholic priest in Italy bowed and prayed before a box which contain the claimed skeleton of Thomas the Apostle of Jesus.

The priest pray to a skeleton in a box inside the altar at the Basilica of St. Thomas in Ortona, Italy.

These pictures are from the Basilica of St. Thomas the Apostle in Ortona, Italy.

The photos taken on feast of Saint Thomas the Apostle, December 21, 2009.

The most amazing parts of this picture is not that a Roman Catholic priest bow and pray in front of a relic box. But rather that the relic box includes a skeleton, whom the Vatican claim is of “St. Thomas the Apostle”.

Take a look at the remains, kept inside the box inside this claimed to be a “Church in Italy”:

The Ortona skeleton, claimed to be of doubting Thomas.
The skeleton displayed on an Indian website.

To avoid people accusing me of faking this skeleton photo, this is the link to the publisher:

We have to thank Catholic bloggers for exposing such acts of wickedness.
It is hardly possible to bow deeper than this is front of bones.
The Portuguese opened a Tomb of “St. Thomas” in Kerala in 1523 A.D.  So this “saint” had two Catholic tombs at the same time. One of them in Italy.

The problem with “good old skeletons” is that they are difficult to identify. In particular skeletons that was picked up in India.  In India “St. Thomas” has at lest three claimed burial sites.

This is what a well known Roman Catholic blogger has recorded.

 This is the tomb of Saint Thomas the Apostle located in the little town of Ortona in the Abruzzi.  Thomas was transfixed with spears and martyred in about 68-72 in the south of India, in Mylapore (Mylapour), a suburb of Madras.  Before that he preached the Gospel to the Parthians, Medes, Persians and Hyrcanians before he arrived in India.  By order of the king he was killed and his remains were later brought to Edessa in Mesopotamia and then here to Ortona in the year 1258.

My comment:

The Roman Catholic Church is an amazing collector of corpses, skulls and bones. And even whole skeletons, which later has been cut into pieces, and sold as relics.

I am honored, that my Lord and God can use me to expose all this, so that the eyes of the blind might be opened.

 Luke 8:17
For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.

I do not know any other websites with such a collection of articles that expose worship of corpses, skulls and bones within the Roman Catholic religion.

In the example of Thomas the Apostle, his bones are kept in several location in Italy, and also in India.

His rather fragmented skeleton in the little town of Ortona in Italy.

A finger in Basilica di Santa Croce in Gerusalemme in Rome.

The right arm is kept for display in The Marthoma Pontifical Shrine in Thrissur in Kerala in India. Which was claimed to be the site of his tomb already in 1523 A.D.

The finger of claimed to be of Thomas is kept in Church in Rome.
The Greek Orthodox church claim this is the skull of Apostles Thomas held at Pathmos.
The right hand of claimed to be Thomas is kept in Thrissur in Kerala since 1953.

Part of the Skull of St. Thomas the Apostle is kept in. St. George’s Chapel, Windsor in Berkshire (UK).

His full skull is also claimed to be kept in Monastery of St. John the Theologian, Patmos in Greece.

If you buy all this fraud, there is basically nothing I can do to help you. You live in such a bondage to the Papacy, that you will not repent regardless of what scandals and insanity that will be reported from within this movement.

The example of claimed to be the Apostle Thomas is grim.

The “saint” has two Roman Catholic tombs. One in India and one in Italy. The Portuguese and the Italian seems not to have coordinated their religious claims. Fraud is the only suitable word for this.

Jesus the Messiah is alive. He will show mercy to all who repent, and are willing to renounce this systematically invented evil.

  1. And these Priests are supposed to be intermediaries for the flock…geesh! how sad! And if we look at some of the things each denomination has to offer the flock we’d be just as shocked! but the denominations are not as accepted and approved by Kings, Leaders of all Nations…including Presidents of all Nations like the Catholics and their Popes ..they are the ‘fair-haired-child’ of religion and all faiths of The World.

  2. Heretics @ work……. you are outside the Flock of The Church established by Christ Himself……. To Peter HE stated what ye Loose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven , The Word of The Lord.
    You do not the work of the Lord blogger nobody but ye do the work of Azazel that leads people away from The Catholic Faith.

      1. Oooooohhh you better be careful….some folk will have a hissy-fit if you give credit to Constantine about the Catholic Church …keep that up and you’ll slip up and tell them that he built a Garden with an ‘Alcove with a (female) Statue for his blessed Mother to go pray in’…(even though she herself had prayed many times he’d get saved and get rid of that lust problem he had…but we see he kept that lust problem and it too was past along to many others just like him..they took on his belief they took on his demons!! …thus many ‘go pray for the ‘Statue of Mary’…(tsk tsk you’re telling secrets of the Catholic Church has hid for centuries…(smile)..Don’t tell them the Catholic Church was so broke they bought a fishing cannery and forced the (peons) Catholics to ”only eat fish’ on Friday…and another time they were so broke they started the Candles of Prayer to pray the ‘not so bad boys out of Hell into Limbo…they were not good enough to get into Heaven but with a few little coins they could buy a candle and put it in the Church and/or home to aid for their loved ones to be better treated in Limbo …Ohhh the beauty of the Catholic Churches and all those Candles lit for the ”Good ole boys”…but oops…lest we forget to offer a tissue for the tears of the Catholic faithfuls when they find out… the Popes did away with Limbo…I reckon those souls are just floating around the Cosmo Universe waiting for another Candle to be lit…and all those who were raised to the position ”to help those in Limbo live better for eternity was put out of a job..where ya reckon they be working now..?? hmmm (smile) …Oh well the ‘Economy does effect many’…hahaha ya think Pharaoh Obama can ‘give the Catholic Church enough money to ”bail-out” Limbo and put millions back to work making life better for the ones prayed out of Hell…and prayed for the ones in Heaven that were sent to Limbo when their ”sins followed them’ ..were found out…(better understood when their families quit paying the price of Candles or did not eat Fish on Friday )…

      2. Jesus started the Catholic Church. Emperor Constantine and his co-emperor made Christianity legal.

      3. Dear Classical Saxophonist

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        My reply:

        Just some few historical facts.

        Jesus was a Jew. The Apostles, gospel writers and the first believers were all Jews. (less Luke, who might have been a gentile).

        The Thomas Church in India were formed in 52 A.D, by local Jewish settlers giving their life to the Messiah. They knew no Pope. The Catholic Church were formed in 315 A.D.

  3. The skeleton of St. Thomas the Apostle was scattered in different places by the people, skeletons was picked up in India to Italy first and other was picked from Italy.

  4. Agree with godsfinger.
    The problem with the RCC is that they hold three things equal: The Bible, The Pope, and their traditions. Jesus condemned the last (teaching man’s traditions as commandments of God), and the second like it. There are 26 major doctrinal errors according to an ex-priest; read, “The Gospel According to Rome”.

  5. I wonder, sometimes this St. Thomas may be a magician. In India he has three tombs. Some times Christ may be the disciple this Thomas.

    1. Dear prof. C. I. Issac

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      The story of Thomas is a part of Indian history. The apostles of Jesus traveled to the southern coasts of India to preach the good news. To the Jews first. The Jewish people has most likely been involved in sea trade in the Indian ocean sicne 1.000 BC, and the reign of King Solomom. The Jews trade posts were established around Cochin in 100-200 B.C.

      The legacy of Thomas has been tainted by religious men, fierst and foremost the Roman Catholic cult. Tne papists were unknown in the Indian ocean, before the Portuguese colonial onslaught in 1498 A.D. They were sea terrorists who burnt and plundered the whole Indian costline from 1500 AlD to 1540. And in 1560 the Portuguse set up their Inquisition tribunal in Goa. It lasted for 212 years. Their crimes against humanity have been tried convered up,and their tainting of true Christianity is an ongoing affair.

      1. From Brazil to Japan, all are claim Thomas is their apostle. But Vatican differ from all the claims. The Seminary of Padmos Island keeping the skull of Thomas. Similarly Indian Syrian Christians keeping the complete skeleton of Thomas at Mylapore. Fact is everybody’s truth. Fiction is nobody’s truth. Myth is somebody’s truth. it is a cultural truth, religious truth, a nation’s truth, one that binds a community together by giving them a common worldview to function within. Let your faith may live long.

      2. “Roman Catholic cult.” Oh Boy!!!

        Well, given that your name is the name of this website and you are spewing out these anti-Catholic statements, I guess my comments here will be censored just as assuredly as if I was making anti-Communist comments in the old Soviet Union. But before you erase this comment, read it if you dare: you are putting your immortal soul at peril by spreading lies about the true church of Jesus Christ. The truth is before YOU: it’s the only major religious group (2 billion?) that still teaches without exception that abortion is the killing of a human being and all forms of sexual perversion are wrong. The only one!

  6. “There are not more than 100 people in the world who truly hate the Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they perceive to be the Catholic Church”. Archbishop Fulton Sheen. Ivarfjeld, I will pray for your soul for spewing hate and lies about the church Jesus Christ started when he gave the keys to St. Peter, the first Pope, when he changed Simon’s name to “Peter” which means rock and stated “And I tell you, you are Peter,and on this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, * and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:18-19. We have record of every Pope since then. I don’t think Jesus lied about the gates of hell prevailing against it.

    And to address the lie about Constantine starting the Catholic Church…. There was already a Christian church and that this church called itself the Catholic Church. St. Ignatius of Antioch (A disciple and contemporary of the Apostle John) in his letter to the Smymans wrote in AD 110 “Wherever the bishop appears let the congregation be present; just as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church”. Not only that, but the early Christian Church fathers at this time taught the same things that the Catholic Church teaches today from the Eucharist, to Baptism, to the authority of the Pope, to the unique roll of Mary, etc. The church fathers can be found LONG before Constantine to be espousing the same views that Catholic Church teaches today. Constantine’s importance was that he ended the persecution of the early Christians in the “Edict of Milan”. Learn your history!! God Bless.

  7. Dear Stephanie,
    Jesus will never forgive your sins.
    Where is the 3rd Commandment? “Do not make for yourselves images of anything ……………. Do not bow down to any idol……”. ( Please see the Old Testament in use by the Hebrews & non Catholics. Exodus Chapt. XX Words 2 – 5). Is Catholicism is right? Think twice before you defend Pope and the Church.

    1. Dear CI:

      I am saddened when I see someone who says they are Christian try to weaken the faith of someone in the Church founded by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In NO way are the remains of saints idols. No Catholic in his right mind would consider a saint or any part of a saint GOD himself. If you are a “professor” why don”t you know that? Perhaps you should do some research on the Catholic Church rather than just regurgitate misinformation.

      By the way, I have thought twice, and thousands of times more, about the Pope and the Church and I am convinced it is the true Church founded by Christ while he was present here on earth and the Pope is the direct successor to St. Peter the Apostle.
