In Pittsburgh Pensilvania, Catholics bow before a tooth of St. Anthony of Padua, and more than 5,000 other verified relics.
Nestled in a sleepy neighborhood in the hills rising over Pittsburgh lies a small chapel. Inside St. Anthony’s Chapel lies a piece from the Crown of Thorns, a tooth of St. Anthony of Padua, and more than 5,000 other verified relics, or remains, of saints from around the world.
Since the second century, Catholics have honored the relics of saints- either pieces of body parts or cherished belongings of holy men and women. While theologians and Church documents clarify that relics are not to be worshiped, nor do they hold magical powers, the teaching adds that relics must be treated with respect, as they belong to persons now in heaven. While relics do not have power in and of themselves, God can continue to work miracles in the presence of the saint’s body even after death, the Church teaches. Relics are present in, or below, many Catholic altars.
Among the relics the chapel currently claims are splinters from the True Cross and the Column of Flagellation; stone from the Garden of Gethsemane; a nail that held Christ to the Cross; material from Jesus, Mary and Joseph’s clothing; a “piece of bone from all of the apostles”; and relics from St Therese of Liseux, St. Rose of Lima, St. Faustina, St. Kateri Tekawitha.
“If I had to name all the saints, we’d be here forever,” Brueckner exclaimed.
Nearly all these relics have been verified, as well.

The Roman Catholics claim that they do not worship relics. That is a gross lie. Please do not listen to what they say, but rather look at what they are doing.
All these pictures expose the US Catholics, as being involved in damnable idolatry. They bow before a tooth of a mortal being, They kiss the glass mounter holding a 750 years tooth, and they call on their brethren to come and partake in miracles performed. The most spectacular form of paganism, is the order brothers carrying this tooth on their shoulders. Giving this piece of a mortal man a Roman Catholic military guard of honor.
When spirits are summoned, people touch relics, people pray and miracles take place. Are not such a gathering involved in worship?
If all this do not amount to worship of a created item, than nothing is worship.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.
The Roman Catholics are not Christians. From the foundation of this copy-cat religion in 320 A.D, it has been demonic. It do have a “Christ” in its center, but it is not the Messiah of the Bible.
For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
Anyone who accept the “Christ” of the Pope as the Messiah of the Bible, partake in the work of Satan. They become guilty of betraying the gospel, and leading people into the eternal flames of Hell.
Let it be underlined: Jesus told that it would be better for anyone who leads a man into sin, to have a millstone around his neck and being thrown into the deep blue sea. Keep this in mind if you acknowledge this kind of paganism and idolatry as permitted and blessed by God of the Bible.
