The incorruptibles

I am always intrigued to learn more about the incorruptibles. An incorruptible is a body of a Catholic that has lived a life of great sanctity when they die, theirbodies do not corrupt like normal peoples. There only a few hundred known incoruptibles left in the world. During the reformation, the reformers /devils destroyed most of the great saints bodies that were incorrupt and the ones that made it through that time, only did so by people hiding them. I myself have seen a few of these bodies, and they are beyond belief. Science cannot explain how a body cannot corrupt, nor can they explain how it happens. Just recently I heard about a new incorruptible here in the states. This was a nun who had died about 50 years ago and she was a very holy and simple soul. When she was buried, she had a palm branch in her hands, and when her body was exhumed during an expansion of the convent she lived in, the branch was still green and her body looked as if she was still alive, she had color in her cheeks and everything. I would like to hear from you and what you think about the incorruptibles.
