Saint Mendita lost her flesh when she was removed from her grave. But she got fresh Jewels in her eye socket, and glitter all over her skeleton.
Because the Catholic saint that is displayed for adoration and veneration in St. Peter’s Church in Munich, is one of its kind.
The Vatican is not sure exactly when she died. The best guess is around 300 A.D. But her remains were kept in the catacombs of Cyriaca.
What we know is that her remains were shifted from Rome to Munich in Germany in 1675 A.D. And 1300 years after she died, she got Jewels as eyes, and even “dental treatment”.
This is the official story from Wikipedia.
Saint Munditia (Mundita) is venerated as a Christian martyr. Her relics are found in a side altar at St. Peter’s Church (known as “Old Peter,” Alter Peter) in Munich. They consist of a gilt-covered and gem-studded skeleton, located in a glass case, with false eyes in her skull, which is wrapped in netting. Jewels cover the mouth of the relic’s rotten teeth.
In 1804, her relics were concealed behind a wooden shrine, but this was removed in 1883, restoring interest in her cult. Her feast day is now celebrated annually with a High Mass and a procession with candle.
Lets take a look at the two skull at this site. One on the skeleton, and one in the box on top of the coffin.
Vahni Capildeo‘s poem, called “Saint Munditia”, is found in her collection No Traveller Returns, in which she describes the saint as being “dug up from her burial / a millennium and a third since the flesh fell off her. She’s back in church
It is very difficult to understand why this claimed to be saint have two skulls.
One skull on the skeleton, and one on the top of the coffin. Whoever they might have been:
Why do both of them have blue colored Jewels put into their eye sockets?
Why do the Catholic feel is more correct to venerate, pray in front off, or adore these skulls, than not Papal approved bones?
There is no doubt that “she is back in the Church”, and also without her flesh. Another horrible example of Vatican approved grave looting, I presume.
That some hell bound papists have put tasteless Jewels on this skeleton, is nothing but religious perversion. And quite a unique perversion. There has never been anything similar to the cult of the Pope.
