Judging from the continued revelations eminating from MSM it is quite conceivable after the death of Pope Lundy1, the PINKPC will cannonise him and declare him the official saint of all ambitious "Property Developers".

One as yet unconfirmed source claims he is also useful for the up an coming publican who is seeking a license for his public house.

Such "Property Developers" and "propective licensees" will have to be genuinely motivated with a desire to serve and benefit their fellow man and the greater good of the community if their prayers to the deceased Pope Lundy1 are to be answered.

What fools we have all been, arguing for over 30 years whether Ulster was "British" or "Irish", while we were busy arguing Cmore Sweeney and his ilk have been busy appropriating it for their own personal benefit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The front page of the Newsletter has a picture of 3 rogues who are now going to convince us, "We have never had it so good," with their proposed budget.

'Saint faked stigmata by pouring acid on his hands'

An Italian monk who became the country's best-loved saint after being canonised by Pope John Paul II and who claimed to suffer stigmata or the wounds of Christ was a fake who used carbolic acid, according to a controversial new book.
Padre Pio, who died in 1968 and who was canonized in 2002, claimed to have first suffered the stigmata – holes in his hands and feet where nails pierced Christ at the Crucifixion – since he was a young priest aged 24.
He enjoyed a massive following with thousands visiting him and even today nearly 30 years after his death he has a millions of devotees around the world and he is especially popular with Italian celebrities such as Sophia Loren and Andrea Bocelli.

Saint Padre Pio with bandaged hands covering his 'holy stigmata'
However a new book called "The Other Christ: Padre Pio and the Italy of the 19th Century" by historian Sergio Luzzatto claims that the wounds were self created using carbolic acid and he claims to have found documentary evidence to prove it in the Vatican's secret archives.
A letter he has discovered from a pharmacist called Maria De Vito, 28, who had made a pilgrimage in 1919 to see Padre Pio at his monastery at San Giovanni Rotondo near Foggia, southern Italy.
In the document Maria wrote: "I was an admirer of Padre Pio and met him for the first time in July 1919. I was there for a month and had the opportunity to see him close hand several times and I always had an excellent opinion of him.

Padre Pio has been accused of faking his stigmata using carbolic acid
"The eve of my departure for Foggia, Padre Pio called me to one side and in great secrecy and asking me not to tell his fellow brothers gave me personally an empty bottle he asked me to act as a chauffeur take it back from Foggia to San Giovanni Rotondo with four grams of pure carbolic acid.
"He explained that the acid was for disinfecting syringes for injections and he also asked for other medicines such as Valda tablets."
The document added that a month later a further request arrived from Padre Pio in which he asked for four grams of veratrine (painkiller) which was not available in her pharmacy so she asked her cousin who refused because he feared it was being used for faking his stigmata.
The book highlights that the testimony was presented to the Vatican by the local archbishop Pasquale Gagliardi who was an enemy of Padre Pio and who always suspected that the wounds were self inflicted with acid and then perfumed with cologne.
However the Vatican dismissed the documents after carrying out their own investigations which ruled that the wounds were not caused by "external forces."
The Catholic Anti-Defamation League have hit back at the author of the book, historian Sergio Luzzatto, saying:
"We would like to remind Mr Luzzatto that according to Catholic doctrine, canonisation carries with it papal infallibility."

The Pope is ONLY Peter's representative on Earth, and NOT God's. As such, nothing that he says or does is 'infallible' and the fact that the catholic church has decreed it so, DOESN'T MAKE IT SO.

Saint Jude is the patron saint of lost or impossible causes. Could this have derived from the confusion by many early Christians between Jude and Judas?

Thus not understanding the difference between the names, they never prayed for Jude's help, and devotion to him became something of a lost cause. Society today however, recognizes the difference and he has become know as the patron saint of lost or impossible causes. Doll includes staff and medallion.
