It is interesting how our angels prepare us to realize things… I had been reading about incorrupt Catholic saints a few weeks ago, and was reminded of a few key ones on the same afternoon that I sat down to read mum’s booklet on Prophecies about the End Times: from Our Lady, the Saints and from the Bible.
In the previous weeks, I had read about little St. Jacinta’s body remaining incorrupt and I had wondered how any Catholic can reject the prophesies and events of Fatima, or declare that they ‘don’t have to believe’, which while being true, does not benefit their soul, and when God Himself testifies as to the authenticity. Rather, I would be afraid ‘not to believe!’
Additionally, while reading about the variety of saints whose bodies are incorrupt, it crossed my mind (fleetingly) that these were, many of them, saints whom I knew and loved: whose messages and devotions I/we have always held dear. What beautiful confirmation from God as to their authenticity, their sincerity, their purity of heart, I thought!
Sometimes people don’t want to accept or listen to the prophecies about the end times. They especially get scared when they consider that the events prophesied are coming true. I think that they even think that some of the saints were liars! Well, it suddenly occurred to me, when I read mum’s booklet, in close proximity to my other readings: that many of the end-times saints she referenced, have a miraculous incorrupt body or had received the stigmata!
So how then can you ignore what God makes clear, even to this very day?
And why is this sign given to so many of the saints who were given prophecies and visions about the End-times?
Let’s have a look at the actual list and marvel at God’s miracle. And then, if you are not already familiar with them, read the actual prophecies which God gave them to speak; do so with awe and reverence, thanking Him that He has deigned to enlighten us at this time.
The Saints and the Signs:
St Francis of Assisi: stigmata
Mother Mariana De Jesus Torres (c.17th ) Our Lady of Good Success: incorrupt body
Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich 1820: not incorrupt, but received the stigmata, formally investigated by the Church & and declared an authentic sign
Blessed Anna-Maria Taigi: incorrupt body
St. John Bosco 1800’s: incorrupt body
Pope Pius IX 1878 (whose reign and particulars were prophesied by Our Lady of Good Success): incorrupt body
Pope Pius X: incorrupt body
St Jacinta Marto (1910- 1920): Our Lady of Fatima: incorrupt body
St Padre Pio (died 1968): incorrupt body and stigmata
A summary of their important and relevant prophecies of these incorruptible and holy saints, can be found in “Handbook of the End Times: Prophecies of Our Lady and the Saints.” which is a downloadable booklet, posted on the “Tools for Evangelization” page.

Read these prophecies then, with a sense of awe and awareness of their credibility; because God Himself seems to testify to their importance, authenticity and supernatural nature, by suspending the physical laws of nature.
The website (http://overcomeproblems.com/incorruptables.htm) that I was reading today when looking for further evidence, also observes a similar thing. It notes that:
“It is also interesting to note that while only a small number of devout Catholics have been given the gift of incorruptibility, it does appear that some Saints have been specifically chosen to have this miraculous phenomena so as to help confirm significant events involved with them.
For example, the supernatural preservation of Jacinta Marto helps confirm the authenticity of the Miracle at Fatima, the incorrupt state of Saint Bernadette Soubirous gives credence to the Miracles at Lourdes, and the incorruptibility of Venerable Mary of Agreda gives credence to her revelations she wrote in the “Mystical City of God”. Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque’s revelations about the Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is also given credence along with Saint Catherine Laboure’s apparitions of the Virgin Mary, and Pope St. Pius X’s fight against modernism.”
The bodies of these saints remain with us as silent witnesses until the time of the Resurrection of the Dead. The timing and circumstance are no accident.
