Kissing the corpse of Saint Benedetto of Palermo

San Benedetto Manasseri, also known as St. Benedict and Brother Benedict the Moor ( San Fratello , 1524 around – Palermo , 4 April 1589.

An order brother in Parlermo, kiss the face of corpse, one of the Pope’s “saint”.

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 .

My comment:

First some more photos:

The claimed to be saved by the Christ of Rome, bow and kiss the 500 year old remains of a “saint”.
The face of the man who died more than 400 years ago is not a pretty sight.

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.

Catholics in Parlermo remove the cropse from its coffin, to be able to worship the dead.
The rotten remains of a man, exhumed and put for display.
The corpse is paraded in public on the island of Sicily.
The parade with the dead saint, outside of Parlermo.
The corpse is kept in a glass box to be adored by local Catholics.

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.

Matthew 12:31

 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.

  1. scripture tells us in these last days how prophecy would be reveled very quickly so we are to stay in the word and pray without ceasing so we won’t become delusional . to look around at the whole world and things happening and we KNOW HE Is coming so soon. so many people who have been brought up I cults just don’t want to hear the truth, as they believe the lie told to them at early ages. In Rev G-d lets us see that the one world church under antichrist is Rome Catholic and I see how so many millions have joined. IT is heart breaking. so we pray and always be watchmen on the wall. It is hard to even find a church that speaks truth, at least one close enough to go to. Israel as we saw the fig tree bloomed in Israel as SHE became a nation and G-d said: you are the generation that will see ME…G-d bless Israel and the JEWISH People and keep reaching out to all who do not know our precious L-rd.

  2. Oh, that is so disgusting and repulsive. Only Satan could dream up a practice so bizarre and unholy to defile people.
    May the Lord Yeshua open the eyes of their understanding to come to repentance and a knowledge of the truth.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      I have written more than 100 articles about Roman Catholic and Orthodox worship of skull, bones, and corpses. To bow down and kiss the face of a skelteton, of a Papal “saint” is repulsive. No pagan would do this, if he was not demonized.

      There is a spiritual disaster in the pipline, when evangelicals acknowledge the Roman Catholic Church as a part of the Christian family. The “mother church” of Rome is an abomination.
