San Benedetto Manasseri, also known as St. Benedict and Brother Benedict the Moor ( San Fratello , 1524 around – Palermo , 4 April 1589.
The cult, which began before the death, became more widespread after the death although initially unofficially, since the beatification came only in the mid-eighteenth century. On May 15 of 1743 the Pope Benedict XIV beatified him making it possible to worship.
It was canonized on 24 May 1807 by Pope Pius VII .
His relics are kept in the village church of Santa Maria di Gesù in Palermo, in his native San Fratello and in the land of Acquedolci .
First some more photos:
And a video of the kissers of the corpse:
Its absolutely astonishing that people who claim to be “Christians” are involved in morbid religious acts like these. And that evangelical Christians are willing to include them as a part of the Christian family.
The Bible say that we should not touch the dead. We become unclean. When we see Roman Catholics in Palermo on Sicily kiss a corpse, it is disgusting. Not to forget that the kiss is conducted during a religious ritual.
The Roman Catholics also pray for and to the dead. This has nothing to do with biblical faith in Jesus. The Bible say we shall have only one mediator between us and God, the risen Messiah.
And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.
The Vatican mock the true Christian faith, by doing all kind of blasphemy in the name of “Christ”, The “Christ” of the Pope is truly a copycat.
Be aware that mocking God in the name of His Son, will lead to eternal death and destruction. I can not warn you in a more stern way. Stay away from such assemblies of the wicked.
May Jesus the Messiah have mercy on all deceived souls. Amen.
