Like many, I was captivated by Pope Francis having St. Peter's bones at Mass yesterday. However, almost all news articles I read mentioned a 1,000 year old curse??
"No Pope had ever permitted an exhaustive study, partly because a 1,000-year-old curse attested by secret and apocalyptic documents, threatened anyone who disturbed the peace of Peter's tomb with the worst possible misfortune," Bartoloni wrote.
Anyone have further info on this curse?
Actually that is not true. The only reason why Peter's bones have never been thouroughly examined is that the RCC knows the truth.....that those are not the bones of Peter.
Because, and this is the most important....PETER WAS NEVER IN ROME.
Read the bible, it is clear that though Peter did visit Italy a few times, the places he visited were nowhere near Rome,
And Peter would never have disobeyed God and abandoned his apostolic mission to the JEWS and taken on a Gentile title of bishop.
Galatians 2:9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we [should go] unto the heathen, *and they unto the circumcision. *
