Explorer: Mystery of the Murdered Saints
For the first time, the Catholic Church will allow scientific experts to openly test the veracity of the remains of reported saints.
My mother always said, "they kill the believers, than they turn them into saints." The believers from the time of the apostles until Constantine took over the faith and perverted with worship of statues, bones, etc. would have worshiped Friday/Saturday as did all the Jewish believers. I grew in a country where there was so much idolatry from the Catholic Church that people had tough skin on their knees from kneeling and praying to a piece of wood or stone in a form of a so called "saint." The first believers in the Messiah were Jews and they did not bow down to any statue made of stone or wood. This is totally prohibited in Judaism. It is idolatry to worship any human besides G-d or to pray to a living human or dead, like Mary, Paul, Peter, etc. G-d is the one we Jews pray to only. We don't pray to the mother of Moshe/Moses, or the mother of John the Baptizer. This is against G-d's commandments. Peter couldn't and would never claim to be the first Pope of a religion that worships and bow downs to man, or prays to the mother of Jesus because he did not pray to her, or any statue made of stone or wood. Martyrs were not worshiped by the Jewish believers. People were commanded to marry, but the Catholic Church eventually came up with the story of the virgin saints, virgin Mary, etc., as if sex between a man and a woman is something unholy. G-d made procreation holy, and told His creation to multiply.
