Here are some links to an alledged stigmatist in Jersey City, Ray Skop.
Here is a youTube video of him.
Ray Skop once told a psychic that her abilities was a gift from God and she later set up shop.
But what gets me is the slideshow of his "stigmata." I could be totally wrong, but a stigmatist with a slideshow is not exactly a great sign of humility. Normally those graced by signs such as these are quite embarrassed about them and would prefer to hide them.
If he keeps it up, sooner or later he’s going to screw up and get caught, can we say Milli Vanilli boys and girls?
I agree, real stigma aren’t something you broadcast about. Still, if the guy is willing to let them be studied, properly (the way skeptics like James Randi ask) it might be worthwhile. If he’s willing to do that, all to the good. If all he does is show off…well, fill in the dots.
Well it’s not like he’s flaunting them…he’s promoting the Rosary more than anything else it seems…skepticism is the best approach here, but to give him the benefit of the doubt it seems like a typical East Coast American catholic who has stigmata. Who knows why. It happens…
As for that psychic…someone needs to give her a good slap…making money off of God’s gift is terrible…just terrible.
He uses Wikipedia as his only source for what a stigmata is… That’s not a good thing.
All it looks like are scratches. How are those the wounds of Christ? Its like “hey let’s scratch this guy up for pictures and use a little halloween blood to make it look a little more graphic.”
It doesn’t look anything like what St. Padre Pio had. And really having four scratches on your hands with a little smeared blood is so not the wounds of Christ.
