Saint Denis walked 10 kilometer with his cut off head in his hands. The Vatican canonized this walking zombie, but questioned the length of his walk.
Saint Denis (also called Dionysius, Dennis, or Denys) is a Christian martyr and saint.
In the third century, he was Bishop of Paris.
He was martyred in connection with the Decian persecution of Christians, shortly after A.D. 250. After his head was chopped off, Denis is said to have picked it up and walked ten kilometres (six miles), preaching a sermon the entire way, making him one of many cephalophores in hagiology.
He is venerated in the Roman Catholic Church as patron saint of Paris.
Some Roman Catholics do not like my use of wikipedia as source of information. So let us also quote from the Vatican approved and sponsored Catholic Encyclopedia
Bishop of Paris, and martyr. Born in Italy, nothing is definitely known of the time or place, or of his early life. His feast is kept on 9 October. He is usually represented with his head in his hands because, according to the legend, after his execution the corpse rose again and carried the head for some distance.

Lets take a look at some paintings and drawings of this “saint”.
The site where he stopped preaching and actually died was marked by a small shrine that developed into the Saint Denis Basilica, which became the burial place for the kings of France.
The feast of Saint Denis was added to the Roman Calendar in the year 1568 by Pope Pius V, though it had been celebrated since at least the year 800. St Denis’ feast day is celebrated on October 9.
To rise from the dead just got a wider meaning.
Jesus rose from the dead, but kept his head on.
It is fully understandable that some of the Roman Catholic stuff is more than a hard sell.
Especially during this weeks of the Olympic games.
We are used to see men able to run over a distance of 100 , 200 or even 1.500 meters. All with their heads on their shoulders.
But what a about a Bishop who walked with his head under his arm for about 10 kilometers?
It is also fully understandable that the Vatican has been unable to measure this walk. In the Catholic encyclopedia is is written that the Pope’s “saint” walked “for some distance”. But the Vatican priesthood were able to set up a church at the site where this remarkable walk ended, and brand the man as a “holy saint”.
We know for sure that when we cut the head of a hen, she might be able to walk a few meters. But no sounds will come from the cut of head during these few seconds. We sometimes use the phrase a“headless chicken”. And after seeing these images, no one can ever again be able to misunderstand.
Forget about walking 10 kilometers: But what about a man who is able to pick up his head, and even walk for 100 meters?
But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
The tragedy of such morbid religious stuff, is that even Evangelical Christians have started to present the Roman Catholic religion as a part of the Christian family.
When claimed to be “Christians” mock God, non-believers take a stand against Jesus. They find a lot of the religious stuff rather distasteful and some of it the very nadir of insanity. Secular people are very often right in their use of their senses.
During the French revolution, the bones of the “saints” found in the crypt in the Basilica of Denis were dumped in a sump near by. Many of the Catholic Bishops and priests of those days were beheaded. Non of them, not even one, were able to pick up his own head.
Plenty of the Roman Catholic clergy had looted the people of France, and brought curses down on many by their occult and damnable religion.
Many of those who beheaded the Roman Catholic clergy later lost their own head.
Jesus explains that whose who use swords shall fall by the sword.
“Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.
I regret the merciless violence that took place during the French revolution. Jesus do not permit violent acts against false teachers, like Roman Catholic bishops and priests. Let God of the Bible handle them in His ways.
Jesus warned us that there would be a great falling away just before His return as the Lion of Judah. Even in the council of pastors, there are those who accept the Pope as a Christian leader.
