You can tell that this guy was fascinated with Christ. This deion matches up with what Cayce said and also Leonardo Da Vinci's famous painting. Cayce also said that Leonardo painted a picture of Mary Magdalene and somehow Leonardo captured what Mary Magdalene really looked like: This is interesting because this painting was discovered sometime after ...

Priests were not required to be celibate until the 11th century. The real problem was that they were passing church property down to their descendants and this was causing difficulties in the church. http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/03481a.htm LOL, of course this is what the Catholic church would say. http://www.futurechurch.org/fpm/history.htm
