Some Saint - He's depicted as though he's burning in Hell!
I think this is all due to the Vatican being a Unesco property. - I've just been taking a look at the Unesco laws governing SNS (Sacred Natural Sites) and it's full of the most awful rot!
SInce UNESCO properties are called to uphold UNESCO decrees, it's not surprising that their is not much authentic Roman Catholicism out of Rome these days..... By the way the Basilica at Assisi is ALSO a UNESCO property - it seems JPII and every Pope since are bound (surely they could disentangle Christ's Holy Church?) by the statutes held by the UN. Legally!unesco.org/en/list/
Notre Dame de Paris is another UNESCO Site .... There are lots of Churches under the authority of the UN - blame JPII! Was there a reason why he gave up full ecclesial authority of so many Churches to the UN?
Perhaps - again, that is why so many Globalists visit Francis.
The Church in order to continue it's "Tax-exempt" status - needs to remain silent on what are called "Political Matters" ie ABORTION, Gay Marriage. They can not disobey the requirements of Code 501(c)(3) If they DO speak out - they lose their tax-exempt status.
ALL this explains the abominable status of the Roman Catholic Church today!
See these excerpts of the laws governing Unesco "Sacred Natural Sites" - so is the Vatican now classed.
"Improved understanding is required on the biological and cultural diversity values of Sacred Natural Sites, on how SNS are traditionally governed and managed and how they can adapt to ecological and socioeconomic changes,"
..... and then later......."
Documentation, registration and assessment of SNS
Most SNS are guarded by their custodians who determine the code of conduct for these places. Indigenous custodians often receive such teachings from their ancestral traditions, which are born of their territories. Religious custodians derive conduct from their spiritual teachings but are often also institutionalised and hence closely related to formal governance structures. Whilst respecting secrecy and protocol, local custodians and their (religious) communities can assist with documentation of their SNS but for any such development, Free and Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) should be exercised, respecting the rights of self determination, religious freedom and ,cultural continuity including the right to refuse action.
....all this is NOTHING to do with Roman Catholicism OR the Supreme Authority of Peter to bind and loose laws!
"Current international treaties that can support the protection of SNS and their custodians are:
• The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948),
• International Labour Organization Convention (No. 169) concerning Indigenous and Tribal Peoples in Independent Countries, adopted 1989,
• World Heritage Convention - Cultural Landscapes (1992), IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature): Information Paper Page 4
