Præfektura apostolica Poli arcici- The Polar Prefecture


Norway was partly converted to Christianity already in the 11th century, although the heathen believes continued to stay strong in certain regions of the country. In the 17th Century the nation was turned over to protestantism by force after the so called "Reformation" and a Lutheran "State Church" was imposed on everybody. For more than 2 Centuries it was forbidden to practise Catholicism in the region. But in 1855 the See of Rome was able to start a new mission in Norway and the Polar Region; the "Præfektura apostolica Poli arcici." And even though most Catholics abandoned their Catholic Traditions in order to be accepted by the Second Vatican Council sect, there are still Catholics left.. People who wish to stay faithful to the Teachings of the ancient, never changing Catholic Church, with it's Papacy, Doctrines and Traditions. People who reject heresies like modernism, freemasonry, false ecumenism and "salvation" in foreign religions. Regular Catholics in other words.

Incorruptible bodies!


During history the Catholic Church has been given a great deal of miraculous incorruptible bodies of Saints. They just don't go trough normal decay after death, but stay the same. The oldest one that I have seen, is St. Silvanus who was martyred in 310 A.D. after getting his throat slid. He is still on display in Dubrovnik, Croatia and has been incorrupt for 1700 years!!
There was also such a miracle on Norwegian soil long time ago. An Irish princess, Sta Sunniva, that had come over by ship to the Norwegian island "Selja" and had been killed with her company in a landslide in a cave, while they were trying to escape from the hands of the local vikings, was found dead under some rocks about 30 years later. She looked like she was only sleeping, and the bones of those that were killed with her had a sweet fragrance. The King of Norway, Olav Tryggvason, had her relics put in a beautiful coffine in 996 A.D., and this miracle at Selja played an important part in the miracolous conversion of this barbaric nation of pirates from brutal paganism into Christianity.
