Parading the “holy” skull on Czech statehood day

28th of September is Czech Statehood Day, and the Roman Catholics are taking their “saint”out for a stroll.

No one asked the "saint" if it desired to be carried like this.

Wenceslaus I  (907-935 A.D) was the duke of Bohemia from 921 until his assassination in 935, purportedly in a plot by his own brother, Boleslav the Cruel.

Since 2000, the feast day of Saint Wenceslas (September 28) is a public holiday in the Czech Republic, celebrated as Czech Statehood Day.

This is a photo of the procession of the skull of St. Wenceslaus in Wenceslas Square in Stara Boleslav, Czech Republic before solemn Mass.


My comment:

It is not easy to say if it is the skull that is taking these men out for a stroll, or the opposite.

How disgraceful and morbid. To take a deceased corpse up from the grave, to behead the skeleton, and dress up the skull.

That Roman Catholics call this kind of activities “holy” is bad enough.  Every soul that has to spend eternity in Hell is a great tragedy.

The bishop and a cut off skull.

My concern is that this kind of grotesque and morbid religiosity in the name of “Jesus”, keeps millions of people holding a finger over their nose.

They tell their children not to have anything to do with “Jesus”, not knowing that Roman Catholicism has absolutely nothing to do with true Christianity.

The Vatican bishops promote a copy-cat religion. They present a “Christ” that accept a doctrinal mix of Biblical stuff and paganism.

My prayer is that people must not take a stand against Jesus the Messiah, because some of his claimed followers are serving Satan in the name of “Jesus”.

Please open your Bible and see the wonderful story about Jesus of Nazareth, the servant of God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

May God of Israel save you. Amen.

  1. This is not Christianity it is paganism! It is repulsive and shows the true colors of this ritualistic religion.
    2 Tim 3:5-7:
    Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

    6- For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

    7- Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    2 Cor 6:16-17:
    And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”
    17 Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you

    1. Good King Wenceslas

      The words to the carol “Good King Wenceslas” were written by John Mason Neale and published in 1853, the music originates in Finland 300 years earlier. This Christmas carol is unusual as there is no reference in the lyrics to the nativity. Good King Wenceslas was the king of Bohemia in the 10th century. Good King Wenceslas was a Catholic and was martyred following his assassination by his brother Boleslaw and his supporters, his Saint’s Day is September 28th, and he is the Patron Saint of the Czech Republic. St. Stephen’s feast day was celebrated on 26th December which is why this song is sung as a Christmas carol.

      1. Amen! I will always be rooting for the Holy Catholic Church. I feel that on too many occasions people try to attack different religions because of events that happened many years ago. I may not agree with everyone’s point of view, but I try to be respectful. In my opinion the most dynamic way of making peace is just plain respect. You can get a view of someone else’s perspective and find out why they see things the way they do. Throwing conclusions around you don’t get a proper understanding. Perhaps the greatest problem in our world today is that people don’t want to understand. But believe me, understanding other people’s mentality helps me to broaden my own.

  2. Worshiping a church, a political corporate organization steeped in sorcery, necromancy, and superstition. So completely lost. Turn and put your trust in CHRIST — He is the only One who can save you, not some pagan priests in fancy robes or men calling themselves “another christ” sitting on golden thrones telling you to earn or “merit” salvation through their programs of works-righteousness that are as but filthy rags to the Lord (Isaiah 64:6).

  3. […] We racked up an average of between 16,000 and over 20,000 steps each day wandering around the city and across Charles Bridge. Into Lesser Town we climbed up the inclining streets towards the Castle complex as part of a walking tour that came free with our airport transfer. It was the coldest day of our visit but with the huffing and puffing of the climb meant I stripped off my beanie, scarf, gloves and big coat to cool down as we admired the misty view back towards Old Town. Prague Castle is a collection of buildings claiming the Guinness World Record for the largest ancient castle in the world with a footprint of 70,000 square metres. Construction started in the year 870 and was completed in 1929. If Guinness have a record listing for ‘longest overrunning project’, I’m sure it would win that too. The seat of power for the kings of Bohemia, holy Roman emperors and the presidents of Czechoslovakia, I couldn’t get the tune of the carol ‘Good King Wenceslas’ out of my head most of the time. His statue stands on Charles Bridge and his remains are buried in St Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle. Unless of course the cardinal’s carrying his skull around on a pillow for a religious procession. […]
