Travelled to the city of Old Goa, and was stuck down by how gorgeous and awesome the three main churches beamed over me, First off the Basilica of bom, with its towering redish brick, inside this square brick, is the body of the patron st of Goa, Francis Xavier, who's corspe is laid out for all the Goan and catholic pilgrims to come look at, it is said and written that the body of Xavier is still fresh and his corpse reguardly bleeds blood! his right arm was taken to rome, and when presented in front of the then pope, it was said it wrote his name? someone a few years later stole his internal organs and some woman in the late 18th century bit off his toe, which was said to of bleed all the way to her house? but all i saw was a decayed yellowing corpse.
