Mummified nun already with “halo”
A few days ago, the discovery of a mummified nun in the United States caused a stir. The remains of the nun Wilhelmina Lancaster, who died in 2019, were exhumed due to a planned reburial on May 18, 2023. But instead of finding only bones, as expected, they were found almost intact. According to reports, there was no sign of decomposition. As soon as these mysterious circumstances became known, a pilgrimage was started. With the kind support of the Catholic Church.
Since then, Catholic believers have been pouring into Gower Abbey, a small town of about 1,500 people in the Kansas City area of Missouri. Around 1,000 vehicles are said to have arrived at the property last Monday, the Catholic News Agency (CNA) reported. The term “Holy” has already been thrown into the room for this.
Now glass case instead of shrine
The abbey has since abandoned its original plan of moving the nun’s dead remains to the newly constructed St Joseph’s shrine, instead placing them in a glass case. This decision appears to have been “sanctioned” by Bishop Vann Johnston of the Kansas City Diocese. A procession has already taken place. According to the report, the nun’s body was framed by flowers and on the top of the glass case was placed a picture of “Saint Joseph” with the “Child Jesus” in his hands.
Corpse carried across the grounds
The publicly revealed Wilhelmina Lancaster was the founder of the Benedictine order “Mary, Queen of the Apostles”. At 5 p.m., numerous sisters from this order gathered on the scene of the action and carried the body on a platform around the abbey grounds, prayed the Rosary and sang hymns. Behind the nuns followed several thousand pilgrims.
Bishop left investigation unanswered
The reasons for the integrity of these deceased have not yet been answered. Bishop Johnston stated that a “thorough investigation” was needed to answer “important questions”. But when and if an investigation will be initiated at all, the bishop left unanswered.
Voices of devout Catholics
CNA asked around among the pilgrims present and caught a few voices and quoted them as well.
“You’ve got to experience the magic and the miracle of it“, such a pilgrim. Another said: “It’s a modern-day miracle and it was just something we had to come to,“. A clearly devoted Catholic said: “I strongly believe in the Catholic faith. I believe in miracles and I have never seen anything like this before. I’ve got a lot going on in my life and this is the best time to get that message from a nun,“
The pilgrims also included sisters from other Catholic orders. Also three sisters of the Order of the “Poor of Jesus Christ” in Kansas City. They felt inspired by the sight of Sister Wilhelmina’s corpse, they unanimously said. One of these sisters was so touched that she could have cried. “I just had this feeling of peace and love. We share a vocation. Her fidelity to the Lord and her love, I could feel that there,”, so the nun.
Another pilgrim said she had requested “intercession for the children of our marriage” from the deceased. Her companion believes she recognizes a message from God in these circumstances. God told her that he was alive and had not forgotten her.
Catholicism in its entirety
Honestly! If you take away the predicate “Christianity” from all the hustle and bustle, what is left but openly practiced spiritualism, as is common in occult, shamanic, esoteric groups and groups close to natural religions? Laying out the dead, looking at them, touching them, worshiping them and perhaps depositing them piecemeal as relics under the altars for the unspeakable Eucharist. Where is this even remotely found in the Bible?
The cult of the dead also in Buddhism
A pilgrim justified her journey to this spectacle by saying that one would otherwise have to wait a hundred years for such events to experience something like this. Mistake! A trip to the island of Koh Samui, Thailand, for example, to the Wat Khunaram (temple) is enough. Since the 1970s, there has been an almost unharmed monk sitting in his glass case. Public and for everyone to “admire”.
With the death cult in Thailand, you have to give Buddhism credit for the fact that what’s on the label is inside. People know what they are getting themselves into. However, this is not the case with Catholicism. This Church of Rome dresses in the robes of Christianity, drives people astray and does exactly what God expressly condemns as an abomination in several places in His Word, e.g.:
The catechism gives it
The nun has died. Any “effect” on your part required at least an immortal soul, which is also taught by the Catholic (also Protestant) Church. But this is a flat lie, as only a few verses in the Bible on the subject of mortal souls prove. This untruth of an immortal soul, conveyed purely from tradition, is also one of the three lies of the serpent in the Garden of Eden. These lies are fully espoused as official Catholic dogma according to the catechism.
All the hustle and bustle surrounding the dead and their worship is in fact Catholic, but not Christian. The people who make the pilgrimage there should not take legal action but protest if they follow the gospel and not the instructions of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. But one of the Catholic Church laws prescribes unconditional obedience. Not to God, but to the Church. The “birthright” claimed by this successor of pagan Rome for her supposed authority to issue directives is nothing more than a further expression of her excessive self-importance. But the right passage for this can also be found in the Bible:
