I felt humbled when I saw St. John Bosco's incorruptable body up close in 1996, in Turin, Italy. Founder of the Salesian Society. (b.16 August,1815- d.31 January 1888). Italian Roman Catholic priest of the Latin Church, educator & writer of the 19th century, dedicated his life to the betterment & education of street children, juvenile delinquents & other disadvantaged youth He employed teaching methods based on love rather than punishment, a method known as the Salesian Preventive System.

Today, Aug. 20, 2013, is the 99th anniversary of Pope St. Pius X's death. He is the last pope saint to be canonized whose cause underwent the scrutiny of a Devil's Advocate, a role that was formalized by Pope Sixtus V in the 16th century. John Paul II eliminated the Devil's Advocate requirement. Pope St. Pius X's body is incorrupt.

This is Saint Jean Vieni. Not Abraham Lincoln. This saint is an incorruptible. He was not embalmed and there are some 200 others that science can not explain there state of preservation. I did NOT mean to mislead anyone into thinking this was Lincoln. I posted it & didn't check the source.
Jacinta Marto was one of the three original visionaries at Fatima, Portugal in 1917. She was born in 1910 and died in 1920. In both 1935 and 1951 her body was exhumed and in each instance her body was found to be incorrupt. The Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima was built on the site where the three children first saw 'a lady brighter than the sun" and Jacinta's tomb has remained there since 1951.
Mother Theresa of Jesus, Carmelite, founded the Monastery of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi in Coopersburg and died in 1939. Her body was disinterred for reburial in August 2001 -- at which time it allegedly was found to be incorrupt or at least surprisingly preserved and still holding a palm that had not disintegrated. She is one of only four incorruptibles in the United States.
