The remain of Saint Diego of Alcala is kept in a 17th century silver urn inside the Cathedral in Alcalá de Henares in Madrid. His claimed “untouched” body is shown to the public every year, on his feast of November 13th.

This is written on a Roman Catholic website.

On Saturday November 13th the city of Alcalá de Henares returned to San Diego to honor the occasion of your feast. All day crowd of faithful came to the Cathedral to venerate the saint’s incorrupt body, exposed in front of the altar ark.

Lets take a look at some pictures.

If you read wikipedia, you will be presented by one of the claimed miracles that lead to the canonization of this “saint”.

On a hunting trip, Henry IV of Castile fell from his horse and injured his arm. In intense pain and with his doctors unable to relieve his agony, he went to Alcalá and prayed to Didacus for a cure. The saint’s body was removed from his casket and placed beside the king. Henry then kissed the body and placed the saint’s hand on his injured arm. The king felt the pain disappear and his arm immediately regained its former strength

Another Roman Catholic website has recorded the last words of this claimed “saint”

With his eyes fixed on the crucifix, he breathed forth his soul on November 12, 1463, saying the words, “O faithful wood, O precious nails! You have borne an exceedingly sweet burden, for you have been deemed worthy to bear the Lord and King of heaven.”

Here are some few more pictures:

My comment:

That the Spanish king “kissed the skeleton” to get healed, is a quite grotesque examples of religious necrophilia. Also taking a piece of a dead mans flesh into his own dwellings. Still this event is quite Biblical, but in a rather negative manner.

 Luke 17:37
“Where, Lord?” they asked. He replied, “Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.”

Jesus the Messiah is speaking about the people who will be left behind, the enemies of the truth. The apostles of Jesus were asking, where will these people go? The Messiah was bluntly spoke about the walking dead, worshiping the dead and death.

 Luke 9:60

Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”

I have written more than 50 articles about Roman Catholics worship of bones, corpses and skulls. But I have found few better examples than this. This example of idolatry is blunt, blasphemous and ongoing. Even on his dying bed, this “saint” proclaimed blasphemy, honoring created things. “O faithful wood, O precious nails!”.

The images of Roman Catholic worship of the corruptible remains of a human being, is quote disturbing. It is difficult to understand the claims of religious “incorruptibility” Even a small child can recognize this rotten stuff. The pictures of the skull do not need any further explanation.

May Jesus the Messiah have mercy on these deceived souls. So that they can repent, and stop spoiling the name of the true and living God.
