Heart of Padre Pio is coming to Boston

“This is the first time any major relic of Padre Pio has left Italy, and will come to Boston.

Pope Benedict XVI looks at the relics of the mystic saint Padre Pio in the crypt of Santa Maria delle Grazie in San Giovanni Rotondo
Pope Benedict XVI prayed to the cut out heart of Padre Pio.

I’m very excited to announce that the Capuchin Friars who run the Shrine of St. Padre Pio have offered to come to Boston with the heart of Padre Pio for his feast day this year,” Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston announced in a Sept. 2 post on his blog.

“This is the first time any major relic of Padre Pio has left Italy, and we are so pleased that they have offered to come to Boston for this historic visit. We know that many people throughout our country have a great devotion to Padre Pio, so the friars have made this possible especially for those who are not able to travel to San Giovanni Rotondo in Italy to venerate his relics and pray for his intercession,” he added

 

The relic will be in the Boston area from Sept. 21 through his feast day, Sept. 23. It will be the only stop the relic will make during this trip.

My comment:

To pray to the dead is a grave sin. To exhume dead bodies to cut their hearts out, should have been a punishable offense.  That such morbid religiosity is practiced in the name of “Christ” is a crime against humanity. Because Roman Catholic priest who are involved in such activities, are the reason who millions of people stay away from the true gospel.
Such souls simply do not understand that Roman Catholicism represent Satan’s copy of the Biblical faith.

If anyone does not love the Lord, let that person be cursed! Come, Lord!

 

I will remind you all about the message of Paul, in his letter to the church in Galatia. May all who are ambassadors for a false gospel be condemned. If they do not repent, let their final destination be the eternal fire of Hell. Amen.

 

But Jesus told him, ‘Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.’

Jesus the Messiah said” “Let the dead go and bury their own dead”. Few lines fit more to describe the Roman Catholic worship of skull, corpses and cut off body parts.
Do not forget, all you who serve the antichrist in the Vatican. I loved you enough to warn you.  Repent, or perish.

  1. All I can say reading this and much more, how anyone can accept the Catholic Cult. but I read in scripture that Yeshua said: when they refuse the truth, that HE would send the lie and that they would believe it. It is heart breaking for so many who have family in the false church. G-d did not wish any should perish and we all need to just keep praying . times I think if more was told by True Christians we would win some of them. But looking around the world even the usual churches are in great Apostasy. How can they miss the book of Rev when the churches were warned and then the warning of luke warm churches being sprewed out of hIS MOUNTH and then the word from Rev on to 4…. is a last warning not many heed. knowing things would happen fast and are….so many lost and undone we see paganism spead like wild fire. I look forward to the soon coming of our L-rd but stay in the word and pray without ceasing and try to win all to the truth of the gospel. Shalom

  2. You have to understand that Hebrew is a very expressive language, much given to hyperbole.

    As when our Lord says
    Luke 14:26
    “if any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.”

    No one believes that Our Lord wants us to hate our family – but Hebrew has a lack of comparative adjectives. He does mean we should love him more than these others.

    Likewise, “Let the Dead bury the Dead” – classic Hebrew hyperbole.

    1. Dear Armorrcc

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Luke 14:26 means excately what is means. There is no need to water this down, by Roman Catholics and others. There are a lot of things God hates. I can gives you amplified examples from the Bible. Simply because God hates sin, billions of people will be sent to hell. Regardless of the high regards they might have had for them selves, and honored by kings and bishops.

  4. It is extremely blasphemy to venerate a dead man flesh.
    The Roman Catholicism by it’s very
    Nature is a cult and they are leading thousands of innocent people to hell.
    Come to Jesus He is the only One
    who can save you
    Jesus is Lord

  5. The veneration of relics of the saints is found in the early history of the Church.

    A letter written by the faithful of the Church in Smyrna in the year 156 provides an account of the death of St. Polycarp, their bishop, who was burned at the stake.

    The letter reads, “We took up the bones, which are more valuable than precious stones and finer than refined gold, and laid them in a suitable place, where the Lord will permit us to gather ourselves together as we are able, in gladness and joy, and celebrate the birthday of his martyrdom.”

    1. Dear armorrcc

      Shalom and love in Jesus.

      The Roman Catholic Church is using the wrong parameter for truth. Whatever man has said that goes against the Word of God, is null and void. It is just an oppinion. We know that you do not believe in the authority of scriptures, that the Bible, alone, is the highest authority in all matters of the Christian faith. So its pointless do debate with you, and all Roman Catholics who honror their traditions higher than the infallible Word of God.

      Polycarp

      1. For 1500 years the Christianity deposit of Faith of the Catholic Church consists of Holy Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the Magisterium .

        You can equate it to a three legged stool, with each leg having its own specific function. This three legged stool is also firmly implanted on the solid rock of the Catholic Church. See Matt 16:18, John 1:42, Eph 2:20, 1Pet 2:4-8

        A three legged stool has strength, is sturdy, stable, steadfast and stalwart.

        However, what happens when you cut off one leg? The stool becomes unstable and falls over.

        During the Protestant reformation, the reformers separated themselves from one of those three legs of stability.

        And that is why we have our differences.

      2. armorrcc
        You’ve said
        “deposit of Faith of the Catholic Church consists of Holy Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the Magisterium”
        and
        “You can equate it to a three legged stool”

        Well, none of this has any connection with Bible teaching. It’s all RCC propaganda.
        “Solid Rock” you’ve mentioned is and must be, no one else but JESUS.
        If church is build on Jesus, it resembles Him. if church is build on man, in RCC case Peter (mere man), it resembles just mere man. And acts like mere man. Full of mischief & error.
        History is proof of that. RCC history is full of persecution, blood and misery.

        I don’t understand how can protestants, till today, still stick to teachings about triune God, and Sunday keeping.
        All this is mere invention of Roman Catholic Church. Well, and her so called “Fathers” who sprung up after Jesus’ apostles died out.

  6. armorrcc,
    Please explain what makes a tradition sacred. By definition, tradition is an inherited, established, or customary pattern of thought, action, or behavior (as a religious practice or a social custom). Traditions are created by men and anything done by man is subject to error. All that is needed is God’s word.

    1. Dee
      When reading 2 Timothy 3:16-17 in context of the surrounding passages, one discovers that Paul’s reference to Scripture is only part of his exhortation that Timothy take as his guide Tradition and Scripture.

      The two verses immediately before it state: “But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it, and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:14–15).

      1. Dee
        Paul says that Christian teaching is to be found in the tradition which is handed down by word of mouth (2 Tim. 2:2).

        He instructs us to “stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter” (2 Thess. 2:15).

      2. Dee
        The first Christians “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching” (Acts 2:42) long before there was a New Testament.

        From the very beginning, the fullness of Christian teaching was found in the Church as the living embodiment of Christ, not in a book.

        The teaching Church, with its oral, apostolic tradition, was authoritative. Paul himself gives a quotation from Jesus that was handed down orally to him: “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).

      3. @armorrcc
        2Ti 3:14 But you keep on in what you learned and were assured of, knowing from whom you learned,
        2Ti 3:15 and that you have learned from your childhood, THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, which are able to make you wise to salvation through belief in Messiah Yahshua.

        Common sense tells me, if teachings of those who teach me certain traditions go against teachings of JESUS and HOLY SCRIPTURES, then their teaching is wrong.
        There is no instruction in the Bible to have any other mediator between us and God, but Jesus Christ.
        There is no instruction to pray to any dead man or a woman, no matter how godly they were. Exactly opposite, it is forbidden:

        Isa_8:19 And when they say to you, Seek to the mediums, and to fortunetellers who peep and mutter; should not a people seek to its Elohim, rather than for the living to seek to the dead?

        May God open your eyes.

  7. I don’t know if it’s just me- would this feel different if it were his brain and not his heart? I feel morbid repulsion from the idea that his heart is on display, and curious disgust about his body being on display. I’d feel creepy observing his heart or body. but his brain- like the physical networks of his patterns of thoughts, behaviors and the processing of his senses? That I respond to with curious attraction- can I copy some of those neurons?

    His heart, his brain, the body (his nerve)- where can I observe his ruby slippers? Probably hanging on the cross.

  8. I am a catholic and I find this kind of thing abhorrent and an insult to Christ. I don’t want to see the heart or hands or anything of a dead person claimed to be a saint. That is to me an injustice and insult to the dead person. This is so anti-Christ I don’t know where to begin. I wish I knew how this sort of abomination was started.

  9. None of you know anything about the Saint of Padre Pio and the works by which Christ showed He was with him. Do not judge or hold forth in hatred against the Catholic Church because there is so much here that you do not understand. Firstly they are not praying to a dead man. Padre Pio is alive with Christ in heaven. Secondly they ask for his intercession to Christ as a person close to Christ.
    But lastly, do you realise that Christ came to found a Church and despite your criticisms, it remains since He sent it forth. In that Church he has allowed great saints to come forth and they have all the marks of the saints, doing the works that Christ did and with the same power (from God). Can you claim you do ? Lastly, I do not know of any Protestant sect, who can claim that the body of one of their saints, who led an extraordinarily holy life, has remained incorrupt. There are over 200 Catholic saints whose mortal remains testify miraculously to the lives they led. Do not judge Catholics. Start learning with an open heart and mind, brothers, as Paul exhorted the Jews.

    1. @DonnaLiane
      It is easy to love good Catholics, many of them are good, even better people than I am. Well, I’m only sinner. Not better than any of them.
      But it is impossible to love their church. Full of idols, dead corpses or bones, and her history full of persecution and blood of innocent people.
      I always wonder how can Catholics turn blind eyes to bloody history and dirty politics of their church.

      Well dear Catholic, there is no miracle in preserving dead body. Egyptians did it quite well too, and as we know it, they worshiped demons.

      And lastly, no man needs any other mediator between our God, but one and only, His Son Jesus Christ.
      The idea of praying to dead people, no matter how saint they were, is hoax – demonic tradition.

      Bible:
      Isaiah 8:19 And when they say to you, Seek to the mediums, and to fortunetellers who peep and mutter; should not a people seek to its Elohim, rather than for the living to seek to the dead?

      1. Dear pdvor2. There may be some Catholics who don’t know the Faith and cannot explain it well. But firstly Jesus Christ is our only mediator and only Saviour. We do not ‘pray to’ anyone else in the manner which you think. To pray is to worship, to thank God, to praise and to ask. It also is to talk to. We worship God alone; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. What we ask is for the communion of saints to also ‘join us’ in praying for our needs. This is to ask for their intercession as I would ask my friends to join in praying for a particular intention. The saints are most certainly not dead people, not for those who lived lives, aligned with Christ and accepted His salvation. They have simply shed their mortal shell. For if they were really dead in the sense you refer to them, then you would not truly believe in Eternal Life. They are in fact as alive, or more alive, than you or I, as their souls live fully in the heavenly spiritual realm, due to the gift of Salvation granted to those who believe in Christ and live their life aligned with Him; in all things spiritual, fixing their eyes on heavenly things. Therefore as St Paul says, they are not dead but alive, and we shall all (believers) be changed in the blink of an eye. When I ask you, or any of my brothers and sisters in Christ, to pray with me or for me, I do not disclude those whom I cannot see but whom I believe by faith, are with him in heaven. This is the fullness of the truth as regards the communion of saints. Even Jesus spoke with Moses and Elijah.
        Secondly, the bodies of those saints who are incorrupt are not preserved by human hands. And they look nothing like a preserved body either. Read just one story of but one of these saints. It is a sign from God of the resurrection to come. A lot of misinformation and propaganda exists about Catholics and Protestants alike. I know because I work with Protestants, am close friends with many and pray with them also. I love them, as they do, me. And I am certain The Lord loves each one of us. He makes no distinctions between believers. He judges the heart. By the way, mediums and fortune tellers are strictly forbidden in the Catholic faith too. Their appearance of any power that they claim to have, is from Satan. Why would anyone seek to know the future? They must trust in God and His Will. It is lack of faith which tempts them. Those who do so, need to repent and turn to God in all their needs.

      2. DonnaLiane,

        You said: What we ask is for the communion of saints to also ‘join us’ in praying for our needs. This is to ask for their intercession as I would ask my friends to join in praying for a particular intention.

        My comment: God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are one. There is no one else you should be praying to. 2 Corinthians 13:14 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

        There are no saints. We are all sinners, Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

        Your confusion and blindness might be your downfall. Mary was like you and I.

        You also said: The saints are most certainly not dead people, not for those who lived lives, aligned with Christ and accepted His salvation. They have simply shed their mortal shell.

        My comment: Where in the Bible does it say that?

        God Bless,

        Gloria
