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.”

Cardinal Rigali changes the dress on the skeleton so it will feel fine during its feast.

And not to forget:  President Barack Obama once presented Pope Benedict XVI with a stole once worn by St. John Neuman.

July 2009: President Obama gives the Pope some garments used by the deceased Roman Catholic bishop of Philadelphia.
July 2009: These are the garments gifted to the Pope by the two Obama’s.

My comment:

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…

 Matthew 7:15
“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.

 Romans 1:18

 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.

 Luke 9:60
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.

9 thoughts on “The Philadelphia “saint” who rest inside altar of his church

  1. 2 For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;

    2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

    3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

    4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.

    5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.

    6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

    7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

    8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

    9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

    10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

    11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

    12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

    13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

    16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

    18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

    19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

    20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,

    21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;

    22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

    23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

  2. yes Janet they get their beliefs from Hell and the grave where they dig up people and claim what ever will bring in the largest haul of merchandise on the people who pay to see, visit etc their dead bodies

  3. What is the fascination with corpses, dead mens bones? I expect this at halloween but not from a self proclaimed true church. The only time Jesus messed around with corpses was when He was raising the dead, folks.come out of this and draw near to Christ, forget the rituals and manipulation, trust Jesus and follow Him only.

    1. The “fascination with dead men’s bones” goes back to the early Church. Scripture tells us for example, that the body of a murdered man was thrown into a cave, and he was restored to life when it fell on the bones of Elijah. Clearly, God can choose to work miracles through BONES or whatever means HE CHOOSES. But by all means, limit the power of God to fit your narrow mindedness, bash ancient customs tied to the early Church, and pat each other on the back and tell each other how wonderful you are, and how EVIL others are. Makes you feel “good”, doesn’t it.
