"Put any one of these bodies out in the sunshine, in the tropical heat of the equatorial regions, then come back a week later."

Last I heard, exposed bodies decomposed at the latitude of France, too. And yet St. Bernadette's body has not so decomposed. That is the whole point of what "incorruptibility" means, and is another physical proof of a miracle.

I don’t care how ‘healthy it looks, can you make it function again? If the heart, brain, lungs, etc. are irrepairable, it is corrupted!

That is so typical of the RC/EO system which relies so much on the outside, the visual aides, using countless statues, paintings, ‘icons’, relics, etc. that are just another form of the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, pride of life.

The apostles refused and rebuked any veneration toward themselves, pointing souls to Jesus Christ.

When you’ve truly been filled with the Holy Ghost, the last thing you are going to do is dig up dead bodies to ‘venerate’. The ‘harvest’ that the Lord demands is done during the day, when there is the light of life, not in the darkness of death.
