Roman Catholicism and the worship of the dead VI : The four versions of the skull of John Chrysostom

The four versions of the skull of John Chrysostom

http://ivarfjeld.com/2013/09/07/the-four-skulls-of-st-john-chrysostom/  

Claimed skulls of  St. John Chrysostom is located in the Cathedral in Florence, in a Roman Catholic shrine in Pisa, in Moscow and on Mount Athos in Greece.

The Russian version of the skull of the “saint” arrived in New York for veneration 6th of February 2010.
John Chrysostom (347–407.AD) was Archbishop of Constantinople, and considered an important Early Church Father.
He is recognized by the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church as a saint and as a Doctor of the Church.
It is worth noticing that the Roman Catholic Church has admitted that they stole the remains of the Byzantine priest, and took it to Rome. The present Pope returned the stolen bones, explained by wikipedia.
 Most of John’s relics were looted from Constantinople by Crusaders in 1204 and taken to Rome, but some of his bones were returned to the Orthodox on 27 November 2004 by Pope John Paul II.
Neither theft of bones, nor grave looting, seems to be noble acts.
But the battle for the corpse, skull and bones of this archbishop is more grotesque than this example of criminal priests becoming robbers. There are four Churches who claim to have the skull of the same “saint”. One in Russia, one in Greece and not less than two Roman Catholic Churches in Italy.
Let us again read that wikipedia has recorded:
 The skull was kept at the Moscow Kremlin, in the Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God, until 1920, when it was confiscated by the Soviets and placed in the Museum of Silver Antiquities.
  In 1988, in connection with the 1000th Anniversary of the Baptism of Russia, the Head, together with other important relics, was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church and kept at the Epiphany Cathedral, until being moved to the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour after its restoration.
 However, today, the Vatopedi Monastery posits a rival claim to possession of the skull of St. John Chrysostom, and there a skull is venerated by pilgrims to the monastery as that of St John.
Two places in Italy also claim to have the skull of St. John Chrysostom: the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence and the Dal Pozzo chapel in Pisa.

Lets take a look at the other three claimed version of the skull of this man who died more than 1.600 years ago:

The claimed skull of Chrysostom is kept for adoration  inside the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Florence in Italy.

The Greek version of the skull. There is an open door to the “ear”, so the faithful Greek Orthodox can pray.
Exodus 20:5
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.

The second Italian version of the skull, is located in a Roman Catholic shrine in Pisa.
 Deuteronomy 4:28
There you will worship man-made gods of wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or eat or smell.

The Russians at least do not scare the children, but put their skulls in proper golden boxes.

The box with the Russian skull has a top opening. It looks a little bit like the surface of the planet Mars.
A major Roman Catholic news agency has reported “miracles’ from one of these skulls. Remarkably not with the two versions found in Roman Catholic shrines.
 Two miraculous cures have been reported in Cyprus as a result of contact with the skull of St. John Chrysostom, according to the Associated Press. Father Paraskevas Agathonos claimed the visiting relic, which normally resides in a monastery in northern Greece, had healed a partially paralyzed teenager and a woman with a broken leg.

 Matthew 24:24
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.
The Russians are trilled that their “holy head” paid New York City a visit in February 2010:
 The sacred head will not be touring America, but will remain at Synod until the final day of its stay, when it will be taken to St. Nicholas Cathedral, the Russian Patriarchal Cathedral a few blocks away.
 The head of St. John Chrysostom is being sent to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Sign, in New York City, from the Church of Christ the Saviour, in Moscow, for a week, early in February. (2010, February 26).

My comment:
First: We have to give thanks to Jesus the Messiah for exposing all this religious fraud, so people can get a chance to be delivered, to repent and be saved.
Second: It is difficult to use suitable words for this kind of morbid spiritual madness. Only a spirit that has its origin in the bottomless pit, can make priests, bishops, cardinals and Popes fight to gain control of skulls, corpses and bones.
That this war goes on up to this very day, should have been used as an eye opener for all men on the face of the Earth. All seven billion of us.
The Roman Catholic Church claim to be the original, the true “Holy mother Church”. But she does not only adore and venerate skulls in their hundreds. This Church even have double sets of skulls.
The Russian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox “Churches” and members of World Council of Churches (WCC). They do not seem to make much a difference.
What better proof do you need to see that these are religious movements of liars who are involved in shameless fraud?
It is difficult to phantom that the Vatican can “bless” two claimed skulls of the same man, and both of them being located in Roman Catholic “shrines” in Italy.
If you are not able to renounce this horrible wicked and perverted religious movement, I can not help you.  No message of corruption and fraud linked to the Papacy will make you repent, and escape the waiting eternal lake of fire.
There is a judgment coming. The judgment will be both fair and just.
Repent or perish.

      Dear Andrea
      Shalom.
      We are talking about 1,3 billion souls, who have been deceived. By a priesthood who are a couple of ten thousands in number. The religious elite who control the earth, takes their advices and authority from Satan. He loves to operate as a copy of the Messiah, to get as many as possible hocked onto him.
      • Andrea says:
        If the 1,3 billion souls are all Catholic….then the numbers rise to unfold amount..there are millions of non-Catholic believers and/or no believers that believe Catholics are Christians and support their works just not their idols….the numbers are staggering …I can’t go one week without more than one telling me how great the Catholics are if they’d just drop the idols…they have no clue if they could see these posts, I’d think they’d get their eyes opened…but the majority are shouting…No more, I can’t stand to look at it anymore, let’s just walk in love….HOGPSIT…they are denying the truth…and I still say ”this is SICK sick!! What is it’s doing to the Body of Christ is also staggering..

    It’s quite sad that so many people have been led astray. Nevertheless, I hope that when the rapture takes place and the remains of the claimed to be “saints” are not resurrected according to what is stated in 1 Thessalonians 4:16, the eyes of those who adore these corpses will be finally opened.
    • Gloria says:
      1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
      16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
      AMEN!
  3. David says:
    But, it doesn’t really matter whether these relics are really the True or Fake. All that matters is the Saint was real. If these relics can help us (Catholics or Orthodox) approach that mystery of Faith than they are good.
    Another Example: The True Cross refers to the cross that our savior died on. It was discovered by Saint Helena, mother of Constantine the Great. However, in the years that followed so many churches claimed parts of the True Cross that John Calvin quipped:
    Quote:
    if all the pieces that could be found were collected together, they would make a big ship-load. Yet the Gospel testifies that a single man was able to carry it.
    But, it doesn’t really matter whether these relics are really the True Cross. All that matters is the Cross is real and Christ died on it. If these relics can help us approach that mystery than they are good.
    Plus praying before a relic, cross, or statue is not Idolatry. Idolatry is giving worship that belongs to God himself to anything which is not God.
    So unless one was actually worshipping the relic as though the relic itself were God then one would not have been engaged in idolatry. Whether the relic is real or not makes no difference. I have never Catholics worshiping before relics or statues!!??

      My reply.
      I understand. Any further comments are not welcomed. Please leave this site. Blind guides, false teachers and corrupt people making a mockery out of Jesus will be banished from this site.

      David:
      It obviously does matter to Roman Catholic Church because she certainly has a great lust for displaying these relics & dead bones in the walls of her churches.

  4. job3627 says:
    The RCC has never flinched at necromancy (of course, strictly forbidden by God) as they urge their parishioners to pray and speak to dead people. How can praying to a dead person be anything other than idolatry?? This dead body fetish is just another facet of that perversion. Doesn’t anyone in the RCC read the Bible???
    • Andrea says:
      Your question was ”Doesn’t anyone in the RCC read the Bible??
      Which one?? The one we read or the one they wrote and/or all the ‘additions’ to their Bible? (smile)
  5. Andy says:
    This is all so unfortunate that a person can’t look at all the satanism going on in catholicism and see it is so obviously false.
  6. heir elect says:
    Thought you said you would refrain from posting catholic skulls and dead bones for a while? Though i’m in support of exposing the diabolical nature of this cult group other Antichrist.
