Roman Catholics on Sicily bring their cash to the skull inside the bust of their patron saint.

Lawrence Frazzanò, aka Lorenzo Ravi ( Frazzanò , 22 October 1120 – Frazzanò , 30 December 1162 ), is venerated as a saint by the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church . It is the patron of Frazzanò (ME) and the protector of the Vicariate Forane of Rocca di Capri Leone in the Diocese of Patti on the island of Sicily in Italy.

This is what a Roman Catholic website in Italy has recorded:

The oldest document preserved in the Acts of the Parish of Frazzanò was released January 17, 1557 by the Archbishop of Messina Giovanni Andrea Mercurio.

After he listening to the prayers of the citizens frazzanesi, the bishop desired the Church of San Lorenzo of the “house of Fraczanò”, to be repaired and maintained in a dignified way.  In this church the body if the saint is kept.  The Brotherhood existed to him entitled, granted that after the Church of San Lorenzo was restored, the bishop promised hundred days of indulgence to anyone who had visited every year on holidays on December 30, Christmas, Easter, Ascension, Pentecost, “a primarily diebus vesperis even unto occasum solis earumdem festivitatum”.

Also according to the Archpriest Monsù schoolboy, a few decades later, on Sept. 13, 1642, Pope Urban VIII granted the parish of Frazzanò to celebrate the patron saint’s day on December 30 of each year, the anniversary of the death of San Lorenzo, with Mass, office and proper readings.

The local priests take the skull out for a stroll, with the cash displayed in public.

My comment:

And, just when I thought I had seen it all, the mother of religious fraud is being exposed in a town at Sicily. The local parishioners offering currency notes to a skull, in a bid to be granted some days less in Purgatory by the local archbishop.

I am doubtful that the skull will accept, neither cash nor credit cards. The rotten remain of a mortal human being are probably not in need of anything. But I am pretty sure that the local Vatican approved archbishop will fill his pockets, after the religious procession is completed.

 Matthew 21:12-13

Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money-changers and the benches of those selling doves. ‘It is written,’ he said to them, ‘“My house will be called a house of prayer,”[ but you are making it “a den of robbers.”

Jesus the Messiah had an encounter with money mongers, inside the temple in Jerusalem. He used the wipe on them. Seems to be the only proper treatment of Roman Catholic priests on the island of Sicily too. Defaming Biblical Christianity in the most filthy way, making a mockery of the faith in the Messiah. If these men do not repent from their fraudulent ways, the fire of Hell seems to be a suitable place for them to spend eternity. I love them enough to give them a stern warning.

Repent or perish.

    1. Dear Maria.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Thanks for blessing me. I was realy baffled, when I saw these photos. The whore of Babylon exposed in all its purple colors. I could not have found them on my own. All thanks to Jesus the Messiah.

      Revelation 17:6
      I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished.

      1. Maria.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        You just made my day. Dear sister. May the Messiah, bless you and keep you safe from all evils and deceptions. Amen.

      2. Dear Maria.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        There are many saved Catholics, who still attend mass, for some time. They are new born, spiritual babies, But as they search for truth, and read their Bibles, they will grow into maturity. If they accept the messages from the Holy Spirit, they will surley move out. If not, they will be found guilty in participating in the unlimted sins and blaspehemies of Rome.

        The main culprits are the Roman Catholic priesthood. For them there will no excuse on the day of judgment.

  1. It all makes sense after reading the wiki article on Saint Lawrence. He was the church treasurer. In those days the church would kill heretics and take their money. But one day Ceasar came down on them looking for the money. Instead of giving Ceasar the money Lawrence passed it out to the poor, for which he was killed. Too this day the church won’t let him rest until he gets all the money back.

    1. Dear Edward

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      They killed the “heretics?”….The Roman Catholic order brothers are the barbarians, who killed Christians and Jews. All who refused to bow before the papacy, and his Queen of Heaven.

      Do not buy into the fairytales of Rome. Their lies have been told millions of times, and distrubuted in thousands of books. Not by their words, but by their fruits you shall know them.

  2. Nevermind, I had it wrong. It says it became norm the Roman authorities executed Christians they denounced and confiscated their goods for the imperial treasury.

    Yeah, the story is sort of vague, it doesn’t add up entirely.

      My reply:

      Yes, you got it right. This was the modus operandi of all local Inquisition tribuals set up by the Pope. All over Europe, and in the Spanish and Portuguese colonies.

      You are also right, that my story do not go deep into who this “saint” is, and what he did. My focus is the fruits that shall come. If you want to be decived by religious people, put your trust is what they say. But the photo’s tell the true story.

      Matthew 7:18
      A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.
