A Day of Rest

Traditionally in Christianity Sunday is known to be a day of rest for God. It's seems however, that this Sunday he'll be hard at work.

Today the Pope (seen here looking crazier than usual) created 5 new Saints in a canonization mass today adding to the ever growing army of over 10,000 Catholic saints. The new Saints are an "early 14th-century Sienese aristocrat Bernardo Tolomei, who died along with 82 monks of his order while helping victims of the Great Plague of 1348. Three 19th-century Italians - the priest Arcangelo Tadini and two women, Geltrude Comensoli and Caterina Volpicelli, who took vows of chastity and founded congregations of nuns - were canonized for helping the poor and their dedication to prayer." The 5th one created today was "Portugal's national hero Nuno Alvares Pereira, a medieval warrior-friar credited with securing Portugal's independence from Castile."

The other thing that God will be doing today is watching how the Ebay auction goes for his hand. A man in Idaho claims that as he was praying after losing his job, a rock wall on his property crumbled to reveal the Hand of God. He views this as a sure sign that God is in his life. So... since he lost his job and needs some money he's selling the rights to the rock.

Oh yeah, in case anyone is wondering the bidding on the Hand of God is currently at 550$ USD and the seller has 100% positive feedback in case anyone was worried that he wouldn't live up to his end of the deal.

Happy Sunday everyone!
