The 150-year-old heart of French priest John Vianney is on a U.S. tour – a Roman Catholic relic with New York City as its latest stop.
The Roman Catholic Church has always been the church that Rome built, and it has never been nor will ever be the Church that Jesus Christ shed His blood for. The Vatican has always been a hold of idols and every unclean thing, having a perverse fascination with death. Case in point is today’s story of thousands of Catholic lining up for hours to worship in front of a box said to contain the heart of French Catholic priest John Vianney. This ‘heart in a box’ has been to 28 states so far, just to let you know the Catholic appetite for idol worship. The photo at the top of this article is the preserved dead body, minus the heart, of ‘father’ Vianney, and thousands make the pilgrimage each year to worship that as well.
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:” Revelation 9:20 (KJV)
The Catholic Church loves to play words games, and it tends to fool the majority of bible deficient Catholics to a fairly high degree. For example, when I write an article on how the Catholic Church worships Mary, they will fire back that they don’t ‘worship’ her, they only ‘venerate’ her. Ha! Yes, they ‘venerate’ her on their hands and knees praying and asking her to bless them. But I digress.
“There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.” Psalm 81:9 (KJV)
You will note that today’s article comes from an official organ of the Roman Church, Crux Now, a site bought and paid for by the Knights of Columbus to disseminate Catholic propaganda. But you will also note what they say Catholics are doing to the severed heart of the dead french priest. They are worshipping it. Thank you for a rare moment of honesty, Knights of Columbus.
French priest’s 150-year-old heart being worshipped in NYC
FROM CRUX NOW: It was on display Saturday at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue, where both the faithful and the curious lined up to see the human organ behind glass. The Knights of Columbus fraternity is sponsoring the pilgrimage of this heart, which has been to 28 states so far, with more coming up. (The Knights of Columbus are a principal sponsor of Crux.)
Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, is to lead a Sunday procession venerating the heart of Saint John Vianney, who was a priest in the southern French town of Ars, outside Lyon. He lived during the French Revolution, helping to hide priests on the run.
The tradition of preserving the body parts of saintly Catholics goes back to the Middle Ages in Italy. When St. Catherine of Siena died in Rome, her hometown of Siena wanted her remains. But they didn’t want to get caught making off with the whole body, and decided to take just her head.
Vianney is considered the patron saint of parish priests, famed for hearing confessions for endless hours with an ear so understanding that he drew Catholics from all around Europe.
“He would also recount to them the sins they left out, because he instinctively felt who they are,” says Joseph Cullen, a member of the Knights of Columbus. “But he had a heart of gold.”
Worshipping The Dead Heart Of ‘Father’ John Vianney
In the next week, Vianney’s heart will be displayed in schools and churches in other parts of New York City – Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn – and Long Island, as well as other venues on the East Coast. The relic is to return to its permanent home at a French shrine in Ars in early June. The U.S. tour began in November.
“Vianney was recognized by the Church as a saint and since then, priests especially have honored him and looked to him as a good model for the way they’re supposed to be living their lives,” said Monsignor Robert Ritchie, who has worked as a pastor at parishes in the Bronx and Harlem. “It’s a perfect time especially for priests in the middle of the scandals and all of the stories that are going around; we need an example of somebody good, holy and pure.” READ MORE
