Saints with incorrupt bodies, through no scientific reason, have been miraculously preserved after their death, defying decomposition. They are not mummies, because their skin is soft and limbs pliable, unlike the dry, skeletal remains of the former. Usually nothing has been done to preserve the bodies of the Incorruptibles. Many of them give off a sweet, unearthly scent, while others produce oils or blood.
#1 Saint Bernadette Soubirous
In September 22, 1909, when Saint Bernadette Soubirous’s body was exhumed, they found it to be incorrupt. Her skin had the exact color as that of a living person. After another exhumation in 1919, Saint Bernadette was found in a similar state. Afterwards, she was placed in a gold and glass reliquary at the mother-house of the Sister of Nevers, where she looks like she is still sleeping to this very day (since her death in 1879).
#2 Blessed Imelda Lambertini
Blessed Imelda Lambertini (1322-1333) is the Patron of a fervent First Holy Communion. Her incorrupt body can be found in the Church of San Sigismondo in Bologna, Italy.
#3 Saint Jean-Marie-Baptiste Vianney
Saint Jean-Marie-Baptiste Vianney’s body was exhumed in 1859 because of an impending beatification and was found to be incorrupt. He is the Patron of all priests who have the care of souls.
#4 Saint Teresa Margaret of the Sacred Heart
Saint Teresa Margaret lived her life quiet and hidden. Even though she performed no attention-grabbing deeds, she spent her life living quietly and with virtue. Her body has not decayed and has been miraculously preserved over hundreds of years since her death in 1770.
#5 Saint Vincent de Paul
Saint Vincent de Paul died in 1160 and was canonized on June 16, 1737. He is Patron to the Sisters of Charity.
#6 Saint Silvan
Little is known of Saint Silvan, who died in 350—only that he was killed for his faith. His body, thousands of years old, is remarkably preserved…Read More

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
