Cardinal Jozef Mindszenty (the great warrior against communism, who lived for 15 years in the US Embassy in Budapest) died in 1975, and was buried in Mariaxell, a Marian shrine in Austria, as he had settled in Vienna. After the fall of communism, it was decided to disinter his remains, and take them back in solemn procession to his cathedral in Ersztegom in Hungary, to be re-buried in the crypt, which happened in May 1991.Several witnesses testified to the fact that when his body was unearthed, it was incorrupt. I have always wondered whether there is a photo of this anywhere, and I believe I have finally found this. I scoured a few Hungarian websites, and while I don’t speak the language, I saw the photo mentioned in connection with 1991.
But I was not 100% sure. Today however I received an email from the official website of Cardinal Mindszenty’s cause for sainthood, in Budapest. It said, “Dear Mr. Rabel, yes, this is the photo of the body if Cardinal Mindszenty in Mariatell in 1991, and was incorrupt. Best regards, Brigitta Nagy assistent”
Eleanor Schlafly from St Louis was the foundress of the Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation, and in regard to this she said, “We Missourians have a saying. Show me”. Here it is. You can tell by the discolouration on the insides of the coffin, that it had been underground for a lengthy period of time.
