ROMAN CATHOLIC SAINTS

In the minds of most intelligent people, the term “saint” is used to describe someone who is born again. It never depicts anyone with superior spiritual intelligence or holiness. In Catholicism “Saints” are referred to as very special holy dead people that can help process the prayers of the people on earth because of their special powers or associations with God. They are Saints that people are told to pray to for particular situations, afflictions, etc. This is prayers to dead people which of course is strictly prohibited according to scriptures.

In Babylonian times they believed that “saints” were all mortal men who lived on earth at one time, just like the Catholics believe. The Roman paganism of one form ceased, and rose again in the form of Roman Catholic Saints. The saints of ancient Babylon were renamed and called saints of the Roman Catholic church. Each one of these saints had a specific area of expertise and were worshipped and prayed to for help in that particular area. Many were to be prayed to on specific dates. The Catholic church still follows these heathen practices. The following are some examples:

Saint of actors is St. Genesius who is to be prayed to Aug 25


Saint of architects is St. Thomas who is to be prayed to Dec 21


Saint of astronomers is St. Cominic who is to be prayed to Aug 14


Saint of athletes is St. Sebastain who is to be prayed to Jan 20


Saint of bakers is St. Elizabeth who is to be prayed to Nov 19


Saint of bankers is St. Matthew who is to be prayed to Sept. 21


Saint of beggars is St. Alexius who is to be prayed to July 17


Saint of comedians is St. Vitus who is to be prayed to June 15


Saint of doctors is St. Luke who is to be prayed to Oct 18


Saint of lawyers is St. Ives who is to be prayed to May 19


Saint of hunters is St. Hubert and is to be prayed to Nov 3


Saint of musicians is St. Cecillian and he is to be prayed to Nov 22


Saint of butchers is St. Hadrian and he is to be prayed to Sept 28


Saint of bankers is St. Matthew and he is to be prayed to Sept 21


Saint of doctors is St. Luke and he is to be prayed to Oct 18


Saint of scientists is St. Albert and he is to be prayed to Nov 15


Saint of beer drinkers is St. Nicholas.

Saint of lovers is St. Raphael.

Saint of barren woman is St. Anthony.

Saint to help obtain a wife is St. Anne.

Saint for gout removal is St. Andrew.

Saint for fever termination is St. George.

Roman Catholics are told to pray to Saints for physical afflictions. The following are a few examples:

snake bite (St. Hilary)

throat problems (St. Blase)

insanity (St. Dympna)

sterility (St. Giles)

cramps (St. Murice)

epilepsy (St. Vitus)

gout (St. Andrew)


It looks to me like St. Dympna was a very very busy Saint.


There was even a day set aside in the pagan Roman church to pray for all those who thought they were lost souls. A day set up by the Vatican to pay and pray for forgotten souls in Purgatory. This was called “All Soul’s Day” and was and is still celebrated on November 2 nd yearly. If a Catholic feels he or she may become one of the lost souls, they can join a club called the Purgatorian Society (established in 1856), and pay an annual fee to the Society to have their soul saved from Purgatory. By paying money to this Society of the Romish church, these individuals were assured that their souls would be prayed for when they die.

Some of the Roman heathen gods were re-named by the Catholic church with like sounding names; as in Cheron and St. Ceranos and Brighit and St. Bridget.


The famous Pantheon in Rome still has inscribed on it “Jove and all the gods” above the porticol. It was dedicated to all the Greek gods of ancient times. Believe it or not, this same pagan Pantheon was reconsecrated to “The Virgin Mary And All The Saints” by Pope Boniface IV. A pagan Temple changed into a supposed Temple of Yahveh. Can you even imagine the audacity?


The “Apostles Creed” creed is often recited by entire congregations and without realizing it, entire congregations are agreeing to this ridiculous article out loud, making a sacred oath of an abomination. The truth is, everything about the Pope making saints of men and women is a bad joke, the Pope has no more authority in the eyes of Adonai then any other heathen.


It’s hard to imagine common people that would be considered normal and reasonably intelligent people, worshipping and praying to these saints.


HALO


As seen in the first picture, the Roman Catholic statue at St. Peter’s Basilica has a solar disc (Babylonian solar wheel) over his head. This is also the pagan origin of the halo. The artists and sculptures of the heathen Babylonians pictured their gods and goddesses with halo type circles (aureole) around or over their heads. Circe, the Roman goddess of the sun was often depicted with a halo over her head. Many Buddhist drawings also depict this same type circle over their drawings of Buddha. The fact is, most ancient statues in Catholic culture depicted as Mary are actually statues of fertility goddesses from various pagan cultures. They simple took the mother and son image of the ancient pagan goddesses and changed their names to Mary.


The “communion of Saints” as referred to in an article of the Apostles creed means the following: When Christian people who were special and did much good for mankind died, they could be given “Saint-hood” by the Pope. After these people rose to heaven they were to be communicated with by prayer according to the Roman Catholic church. This of course is pure garbage; the Bible tells us that all who are true Believers are “Saints”. Isaiah warned of people trying to communicate with the dead. Isa. 8:19“And when they say to you, “Consult the mediums and the spiritists who whisper and mutter,” should not a people consult their Yahveh? {Should they} {consult} the dead on behalf of the living?

PRAYERS TO THE DEAD


Many Catholics ask the dead saints to directly intercede for them. Communicating with the dead is an occult practice called necromancy. All those who participate in such a pagan act receive a curse from Yahveh Himself every time they do this. Deut. 18:10-12 “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. “For whoever does these things is detestable to Elohim; and because of these detestable things Elohim your Yahveh will drive them out before you.”


More information about these and many other pagan Roman Catholic statues, drawings, and idols can be researched about in the Catholic encyclopedia.
