The Incorruptibles

I chose this video today because it reminds me of my own conversion, or rather, reversion to the Catholic faith, as I never left, but was very lukewarm.  I am a cradle Catholic, but, sadly, did not understand my faith or "get it" until I was about 25 years old.  Within a few months, I'd describe it as I was infused by the Holy Spirit, with knowledge of our faith.  Of course I gobbled up everything I could read about our faith, but there was a new understanding that could only come from God.  One of the first things I "found out" was about all the incorruptibles in our faith.  What a gift we have!  I was so excited and happy.  I couldn't believe the media was not telling the world of this. There are many more than listed in the video, but I thought they did a beautiful job of showing some of them.  If you are not Catholic, please do not be offended, I am just showing part of my journey to God. We all have a journey, we all must decide, DECIDE to follow Christ, at some point. 

 "Lord, Illumine my intellect to see the truth, and give me the strength to follow it."
Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

  3. Absolutely fabulous! Isn't it amazing how God chooses to use these saints to bring us to a deeper belief in Him? Love that last quote on the video - Let us also strive to be more Christ-like in our everyday lives, constantly imploring the intercession of the Saints.

    Thanks so much for sharing this!

  10. Amen,to that! How beautiful! I didn't know that many of the saints were incorruptible. I do wish this was well known in the world today. Thank you for sharing and doing your part in educating us!

  11. I remember being 16 years old, and while my friends were reading fashion magazines, I was reading The Incorruptibles. :-) Not only reading it but showing the pictures to my friends.

    I had the privilege of visiting some of these incorruptibles later in life. Truly an amazing miracle!!
