Cardinal Miloslav Vlk with skull of Saint Wenceslaus during a procession on September 28, 2006
Lets see what Wikipedia records on this Cardinal:
Miloslav Vlk (born 17 May 1932) is the Archbishop of Prague, and was considered a possible candidate for a new Pope to succeed John Paul II.
There are many questions than comes to my mind, when I see pictures like this:
1. When would a skull become holy, and can a skull ever loose its holiness?
2. Would the skull have been holy without the crown and the green stones?
The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk.
It must be said, that this skull does not appear to be able to “hear”. And since the head has been cut off from the body, it will neither be able to “walk“.
Jesus the Messiah did not approve of those who adore, venerate or worship bones and skulls. God the Son gave us a stern warning not to have such persons as our spiritual leaders.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.
Let the dead go and bury their own dead.
