One day ago it was the most amazing statement that Rugby was not violent.
Then this today. As the CNN article points out, up front, this is beyond controversial. There is absolutely no basis to believe that these are the bones of St. Peter.
In reality, there is no historical or Biblical documentation or evidence that St. Peter ever came to Rome! Plenty of documentation that St. Paul did. So that alone raises questions. Why was St. Peter not mentioned if he was there along with St. Paul?
That St. Peter was the first ‘pope’, which he really wasn’t, is a tradition rather than a fact. That is known.
Yes, many, many relics are not obviously what they claim to be.
But, this, in the 21st century, is a definite test of credulity.
I had NOT expected this pope to have gone along with this.
Actually this is the 3rd VERY STRANGE thing the pope has done just this week. That “prayer of “WHY”‘ was very strange too!
Hhhhmmm! Not good.
