Skip to comments.Pope Benedict said to plan examination of St. Paul
Posted on 06/29/2007 6:32:01 AM PDT by NYer
According to reliable sources, Pope Benedict XVI. has given green light for an examination of the interior of St. Paul's tomb in the Basilica San Paolo fuori le Mura. The position of the stone coffin has not been altered since the year 390. Soon, it is said, archeologists will remove a plug with which the coffin had been sealed in Antiquity. An endoscopic probe is supposed to transmit images of the content. What they will show nobody knows. This alleged decision of the Pope has to be seen in the context of the Year of St. Paul which was announced yesterday for 2008, at the vigil of the Feast of Peter and Paul.
Will a hypervenalating Geraldo be nearby? Maps, we got maps!
Lol ... more like Dan Brown with a magnifying glass.
St. Paul wasn’t a mafioso ... so probably not on HurALLLdo’s ‘radar’ ...
Is that like hyper-venerating? Or is it a cross between hyper-ventilating and hyper-venerating? ;-)
"Acting in a very greedy manner."
Normally I’m against the exhumation of graves for the satisfaction of curiosity. What is the point of this?

Fascinating. I wonder if they’ll get a sample for dating and DNA testing.
Why doesn’t he examine St. Paul’s writings instead? He might discover grace.
Heh... I won’t touch that one with a ten foot double helix.
Oh I see you know the Pope personally?
Perhaps you should pay more attention.
Just updating the GGG info, not sending a general distribution.
