“to verify the condition of the saint’s body and find a way to ensure its preservation.”

Why? If the soul has left, isn’t it a useless shell?

An attack on the blessed memory of St. Padre Pio was attempted not long ago in the press. A so-called journalist insinuated that Padre Pio’s purchase of carbolic acid was evidence of deliberately inducing his stigmata.

The fact that the first step for anyone with stigmatic wounds is supposed to be a attempt to cure them naturally, — and therefore to disinfect them — was not mentioned by the “journalist”.

People should be able to venerate Padre Pio’s relics; he is among the most popular modern saints.

Had you been paying attention you'd know that this is not a done deal. But that's what happens when you blindly repost an article from the 7th of January without searching first in yet another attempt to stir the pot.

Exhumation of Padre Pio contested

Padre Pio's body to be exhumed, venerated

You might find this interesting, even if you don’t agree.

With such a paucity of idols

I can understand how the RC magicsterical needs to excume more bodies for more idols.

Cute

Veneration—my big toe. a rose is a rose is a rose.

And so is idolatry.
