The skull of John Neumann is covered with a face mask. His remains rests inside the altar of St. Peter of the Apostle Church in Philadelphia (US).
Saint John Nepomucene Neumann, C.Ss.R (28 March 1811 – 5 January 1860) was a native of Bohemia and Redemptorist Catholic priest in the United States who became the fourth Bishop of Philadelphia
.This is what a Roman Catholic website has recorded:
He died in Philadelphia of consumption in 1860 and was buried unembalmed in a wooden casket under the floor of St. Peter of the Apostle Church. The grave was lined with bricks. In spite of wet conditions which existed in the grave, his remains were intact when exhumed in 1902 for the purpose of the required inspections for sainthood.
The body was reentered in the same grave. In 1962: 102 years after his death, the Saint John Neumann shrine was constructed in the lower level of the Saint Peter of the Apostle Church. The body was again exhumed at the second stage of sainthood (Beatification) then revested with a face mask placed over the skull, and the body deposited in a class casket. The remains were then placed under the altar in the newly constructed shrine
Lets take a look at some more pictures:
The most spectacular side of this “sainthood” is the visiting Cardinal. He comes to change the dress of the skeleton, and even put a new face mask on the skull.
Just read this story from the magazine Free Republic.
Great model of holiness
Saint John Neumann clad in new episcopal vestments before feast day.
PHILADELPHIA — St. John Neumann, Philadelphia’s fourth bishop who is enshrined in a glass casket under an altar at St. Peter the Apostle Church, was clad in a new set of vestments on Dec. 27, just in time for his upcoming Jan. 5 feast day.
“It is the bicentennial of our Archdiocese and we want to celebrate the holiness of the Church in Philadelphia,” said Cardinal Justin Rigali, who oversaw the reverential opening of the saint’s casket and the exchange of the episcopal garb.
The whole process took more than a year of planning, according to Father Moley. “This was a sacred moment, touching the body of a saint,” he said. “I like the results — you can see the face … reflects the face of St. John Neumann.”

And not to forget: President Barack Obama once presented Pope Benedict XVI with a stole once worn by St. John Neuman.
First: You have to be raving mad to dress up a skeleton with priestly garments.
Second: The Cardinal said: “This was a sacred moment, touching the body of a saint”.
What a feeling of “holiness”, to go and touch a skeleton.
I am a living saint of Jesus the Messiah. Would the Cardinal start to feel “holy’ by touching my body too?
I can see that the Cardinal has dressed up the corpse with white shoes. I guess that must be because the skeleton soon will be taken out for a walk…
“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
For all purposes:
The Roman Catholic Church is a Hell bound movement, deceived by the very priesthood of Satan.
Such false teachers comes to you in sheep clothing. But I can assure you. Inside they are wolfs. Many of them are also burning with passion for their fellow priests.
Seeing such pictures, we can understand why Roman Catholic altar boys have been raped by these priests and bishops in their tens of thousands. These priests feel “holy” even when they undress and touch corpses. That is close to necrophilia. So why not also test out pedophilia?
Please be aware that President Barack Hussein Obama is involved in this kind of religious fraud. He chose to bring the Pope some of these garments, that might have been used to dress up this skeleton.
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
The whole affair of this canonization is despicable.
May Jesus the Messiah have mercy on their souls, so they do not have to burn in Hell for eternity.
Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”
It might be difficult to find a better example, who will fit to this saying of God the Son.
You must go and proclaim Jesus the living God, to the whole World. Amen.
