Glorification of skeletons by the Catholic Church in Germany but also Austria and Switzerland

Dearest Marty, my wonderful Prince,

How are you?

Particularly Bavaria requested (Illation) and received relics of “Martrys” from Rome and decorated those skeletons with gold, jewelry, and embroidery. It is not just middle age creepiness. These skeletons are celebrated every year at the Holy Bodies Fest in our modern times.  

It is really creepy beyond words to look at these decorated skeletons whoever they were once.  One click here and you see the real life Halloween all year round in the Catholic church:

I believe there are at least 17 of such churches in Germany, three in Austria, and a couple in Switzerland. They really do have literally skeletons in their closets.

Here is my point, Marty: Shouldn’t a religion be rather interested in the spirit/soul than in skeletons? It is so low on the tonescale. It fits to anything else that is wrong with that church and its perverted priests. Catholic church claims that they are based on the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Really? Where did Jesus say that they should worship remains by collecting and displaying skeletons?

I love you.

Yours forever and always,
