Catholic Relics – A Failed Attempt To Create Legitimacy


Introduction – Catholic Relics Are Not A Christian Practice

In their never-ending attempts to prove they are the “one true Church” started by the Lord Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church goes to extreme lengths to try to validate that completely bogus claim[1]. One major way they do this is by promoting alleged “sightings” world-wide of their “virgin Mary” goddess. And another way they attempt to prove they are the true Church is by claiming to have preserved bodies of their man-appointed saints. Both the Mary sightings and the alleged saint corpses help promote Catholicism as well as serve as tourist attractions for many gullible Roman Catholics and others. However, neither marian apparitions nor relic veneration have anything to do with true biblical Christianity.

Regarding the above photo of Padre Pio: “A team of biochemists and other experts has worked since the exhumation to get the body into a fit state to be shown. Padre Pio’s face was covered with a lifelike silicone mask of the type used in wax museums.”[1]

Using Frauds To Dupe Their Followers

According to the Catholic Church, they have perfectly preserved corpses of their man-made saints. They claim those bodies are incorruptible and are therefore proof of Catholicism’s legitimacy. I don’t know about YOU but I need more proof than decorated skeletons and wax statues.

Trying To Normalize A Catholic Invention

What a macabre religion… a religion that bears little if any resemblance to the one true Church of the first century. All the Catholic church has done – in their attempts to establish their legitimacy – has been to apply Christian terminology to their many occult, pagan and man-made religious practices, as testified by their relic collections and other ghastly things they have tried to normalize. And to add to their own damnation, they twist the scriptures to match their false gospel and their many other false teachings.

Christians honor the dead by burying them.
Satan and his followers mock the dead by displaying their carcasses in public.

The Jews understood this and so did Christ’s disciples when they took the body of our crucified Lord and put it in a tomb.

Conclusion – What Are TRUE Christians Preoccupied With?

It should be obvious that nowhere in the New Testament can you find any mention of the veneration or decoration of corpses as seen in Catholicism. It should also be obvious that only pagan religions and those who engage in occult practices would be so preoccupied with dead bodies. True Christians are preoccupied with Jesus and the Bible. What about YOU? Who or what are YOU preoccupied with?

“That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.” – 1 Corinthians 1:31


1. Exhumed body of Padre Pio goes on display
2. The claims of authenticity by the Catholic Church are obviously bogus because the Catholic Church does not even preach the true Gospel of salvation, through the merits of Jesus Christ alone. They have a false, man-centered gospel involving the keeping of certain rules and sacraments and sin purging after death in an imaginary place they call Purgatory.

Christ Died For The Ungodly

by Horatius Bonar

The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
