Those corpses in churches were actual people once, and they are venerated because of how they lived their lives. None of those people are worshipped as God, or even gods- or even worshipped period. They are kept and venerated as people believed to be in Heaven with God.

How does a little girl become a "saint" doesn't she have to have done more then die?

a visitor is filming the child saint where she lays in state.


Filmed using a potato....


Or a banana.

Out of curiosity, do people actually believe that this 300 year old dead child's (why display it??!) eye 'opened' ?

And if so, what do these people think it means? Something divine? Im genuinely curious.

I second the mention of this being explained as a manipulation of lighting and shadow. I've read it before, quite a while ago, IIRC.

Lol, I like you & your brother XD

My husband's a former Roman Catholic, from a multi-generation line of them complete with the devout Italy-hailing Italian RC grandmother. Even HE calls it a death-obsessed, pseudo-pagan cult full of demi-gods. Catholics find out real quick he's not a miffed excommunicated, he'd nearly entered seminary school. Then had his pseudo-pagan epiphany and left the church when he realized how screwed up & laughable it is.

They link coincidences with them and say the dead is responsible for some miracle. Spontaneity and/or randomness are a concept not well received in the Catholic church.

Good for you and your husband.


Yah, the whole death cult thing. The 'crucifix' is a solemn reminder of how he was murdered. By the church. They carry it and wear it as their primary symbology. I prefer to remember how he lived, what he taught, how he died is irrelevant.

All I'm seeing is a video lens coming into focus on a semi-open eye, where previously, it was blurry and dark.

I don't see an eye opening. But them, I also don't believe the laws of nature suspend themselves for the benefit of the religiously inclined.


I added the above video.

Get back to me when she starts dancing around and daring onlookers to give her an at-bat on a hopscotch course. The house always wins.
