The “feast of the tongue” was last celebrated in May 2010 in Colombo on Sri Lanka. For this purpose the tongue of “St. Anthony” had been transported from Italy to the Island nation in the Indian Ocean.

St. Antony is also called “Anthony of Lisbon “, and his remains have been taken up from the grave. They are kept for adoration in the Relics Chapel of Padua’s Basilica  in Northern Italy.

The UK Newspaper Daily Mail wrote an article about this Vatican claimed to be saint on February 15th 2010.

Roman Catholic monks adore a 750 year old skeleton inside the Relics Chapel of Padua’s Basilica in Italy.

There you can read the following on a large card:

The display, which will last until Saturday will be in chapel of his tomb in Padua and marks the feast of the transfer of St Anthony, also known as the ‘feast of the tongue’.

When his coffin was moved 30 years after his burial it was opened and it is claimed most of his body was found to have returned to dust. However his tongue remained fresh, which was seen as a sign of his gift of preaching, and was kept in a separate relic box.

A closer look at the claimed to be holy tongue, tells a different story. It looks like a black stone. It must be pretty hard, and I do not think anyone would like to take a bite. Not even touch it. I guess that Is why it has been kept in a glass mounter, and put inside an idol made of gold.

tongue

This item hardly looks like a tongue. Maybe it is a stone?

I wonder how the Catholics can be sure that the skeleton really is of the man they claim is Anthony of Lisbon?

I will not be surprised it the whole story is made up.

The Muslims are told to kiss this stone, which is suppose to take away their sins.

In regards to this “holy tongue” and the “holy black stone”, the Pope and Islam seems to walking in perfect union. They will both end up in the One World One Religion, that is built on a theology of all faiths leading.

Will kissing this stone in Mecca wash away the sins of Khaled Mashaal?

in this picture you see the leader of Hamas bowing down,  ready to kiss the black stone in Mecca. What makes him any day different from Roman Catholic priests that bows down to kiss the black tongue sent from a “Church” in Northern Italy?

What is the Bible saying about men who do this kind of things:

Exodus 20: 4-6:

“You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments."
