The Incorruptibles

Yesterday I happened upon this short YouTube video about a few of the incorruptibles -- very holy souls whose bodies do not decompose after their death.


Below I've indicated which of the figures shown in the video I've been able to visit over the years.

St. Pio of Pietrelcina (1887-1968): a.k.a. Padre Pio, a stigmatist. He is in Italy, and is on the list of saints I hope to visit one day.

St. John Marie Vianney (1786-1859): Ars, France in 2010

St. Catherine Laboure (1806-1876): Paris, France in 2008

St. Don Bosco (1815-1888): Turin, Italy in 2010

St. Vincent de Paul (1580-1623): Paris, France in 2008

Ven. Maria de Jesus de Agreda (1602-1665) and St. Veronica Giuliani (1660-1727): they are in Spain and Italy, respectively. I have not visited them.

St. Bernadette Soubirous (1844-1879): She is originally from Lourdes, France. I visited her at her convent in Nevers in 2010.

Not pictured are St. Pius V (1504-1572) and St. Pius X (1835-1914), two incorrupt Popes I visited in Rome in 2000 and again in 2005.
