The Incorruptibles and a Visit with St. Vincent Pallotti at San Salvatore in Onda

This really does have something to do with our recent vacation, although it comes a little out of order. 

I am fascinated with the Incorruptibles.  The Incorruptibles are the bodies that have not decomposed as other human bodies would.  Although I do not know at what rate incorruptibility occurs, there are a handful of saints and blessed Catholics who are incorruptible. 

There is a long list of things I’d like to do before I die, and I won’t say that seeing the Incorruptibles is high on the list, but it’s definitely something I think would be interesting to do.  If it were possible to see all of the saints who remain in an incorruptible state, I’d want to go.  If I can’t see all of them, the ones high on my list are St. Bernadette, who died in 1879, but looks like this today:

Pope Pius X, who died in 1914:
