St.Anthony’s body is exposed to the faithful in the chapel of Relics, February 15, 2010 in Padua, Italy.
A number of Franciscan monks hoisted a glass coffin containing the remains of St. Anthony of Padua in a room in the Basilica of Saint Anthony, Sunday 15th of February 2010.
In 1981, to mark the 750th anniversary of the Saint’s death, Pope John Paul II gave permission for a scientific examination of the relics. The Tomb was opened and inside the marble sarcophagus was found a large wooden coffin, with a smaller coffin inside.
Inside the latter were three cloth-wrapped bundles, containing the bones of the Saint, other organic matter, and the habit in which he had died.
As a result of the examinations made, we now have a much better idea of Anthony’s physical appearance, and his age when he died. A gifted sculptor was able to recreate the probable features of the Saint in a way that corrects some misconceptions in earlier portraits.
Finally, on the night of Saturday, February 20, the body was solemnly returned to its original resting place in the Chapel of Saint Anthony in the presence of Msgr. Francesco Gioia, Pontifical Delegate for the Basilica.
During the ceremony, the Rector of the Basilica, read out a message from Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Vatican Secretary of State:
” The Holy Father, who is spiritually present with you, sends his warmest greetings to the well-deserving Conventual Franciscan Friars and to all the pilgrims and devotees who have flocked in large numbers to venerate the relics of the great apostle of preaching and charity. His Holiness hopes that the fortunate event might highlight the shining example of this Franciscan priest who has been loved by so many generations of believers. May it inspire many young people to embrace religious life as faithful followers of the Seraphic Rule. May it cause many to renew their commitment to the love of Christ and their brothers and sisters. May they generously commit themselves to work for justice and peace. With this in mind, the Holy Father, through the intercession of the great Wonder-Worker, invokes a plenitude of celestial favours on those who have participated in this solemn event, and sends a heartfelt apostolic blessing”.

It is difficult to find the right words for what you have seen in these photos. The Roman Catholic’s them selves did a video recording of the opening of the tomb of this mortal man, and the removal of his coffin.
To honor skulls and bones with a Roman Catholic mass, do qualify to be branded as pure Satanism. In this video you will see the skeleton being carried on the shoulders of the Order brothers, and granted a candle procession into the Basilica.
Please show the below video to all Christians who have been deceived by their leaders to accept Roman Catholics as a part of the Christian family. May be they are not aware of such dark masses conducted by Vatican appointed cardinals and bishops?
This video was recorded on 6th of January 1981.
For all who love Jesus the Messiah, these kind of rituals are morbid and despicable.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
The Pope and his followers defame and blaspheme God of the Bible in the most filthy manner. If you are still a church going Roman Catholic, you must understand that your are a supporter of the whore of Babylon. You are a part of global spiritual disaster. If you do not quit and repent, you will have to join all these religious people down the path to the fire of Hell.
Please remember: I loved you enough to warn you. May Jesus the Messiah have mercy on your soul. Amen.
