The nun who ate the Holy Foreskin of Jesus (SRSLY)
The Austrian nun Agnes Blannbekin joined the Third Order of Saint Francis in Vienna in 1260 and for the rest of her life refused to eat meat, claiming the body of Christ was enough meat for her. She wasn’t joking!
She claimed to taste Christ while eating the Eucharist and described drinking a “refreshing spiritual drink” from the spear wound of Jesus. She would have orgasms whenever Jesus appeared to her (more about that phenomena here).
She was obsessed with the Holy Prepuce and claimed to have felt the foreskin of Jesus in her mouth.
Her visions were transcribed by a Franciscan monk and he records: “Crying and with compassion, she began to think about the foreskin of Christ, where it may be located [after the Resurrection].
And behold, soon she felt with the greatest sweetness on her tongue a little piece of skin alike the skin in an egg, which she swallowed.
After she had swallowed it, she again felt the little skin on her tongue with sweetness as before, and again she swallowed it.
And this happened to her about a hundred times. And when she felt it so frequently, she was tempted to touch it with her finger.
And when she wanted to do so, that little skin went down her throat on its own. And it was told to her that the foreskin was resurrected with the Lord on the day of resurrection.
And so great was the sweetness of tasting that little skin that she felt in all [her] limbs and parts of the limbs a sweet transformation.”
Saint Bridget of Sweden also tasted Jesus’s foreskin and claimed that it was as sweet as honey…. but more about her in later posts.
