The Body Of A Nun Who Died 141 Years Ago Is Still Completely In tact
The body of a Nun who died 141 years ago is still completely in tact is the revelation that has baffled scientists. Katharina Laboure, a member of the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul and a Mariian visionary, died in 1876 and her well preserved state has left the experts at a loss to explain the phenomenon. In 1933, the tomb of sister was opened by Paris Cardinal Verdier where they discovered that her body was not deteriorated, Even the blue in her eyes was still prominent. Following the discovery Pope Pius XI ordered that deceased nun be beautified and then canonised by Pope XI after 14 years in 1947. Such was the shock surrounding discovery that her corpse was not degraded that officials ordered her body to be encased in a glass tomb at the monastery chapel Rue de Bac in Paris. Born in 1806, sister Katharina devoted her life to those less fortunate than her and claimed to have been contacted by Virgin Mary. She believes that on July 19, 1830, on the feast of Saint Vicent de Paul, she was awaken by a voice beckoning her to a chapel where she heard the Virgin Mary. The voice allegedly said," God wishes to charge you with a mission". You will be contradicted, but do not feat, you will have the grace to do what is necessary. " tell your spiritual director all that passes with you, Times are evil in France and in the world". .
