Does RC have a modern saint whose relics remained incorrupt, as did those of modern Orthodox Saint Nektarios and Saint John Maximovitch of San Francisco?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry to be off-topic, but in reference to mentioning Blessed Nimatullah Al-Hardini
are Maronites a section of the Catholic church ? The name sounds arabic.

Stavro,

Yes the Maronites are a Patriarchal Catholic Church of the Syriac tradition.  They are centered in Lebanon.  They are the only Eastern Catholic Church without an Orthodox counterpart.  They have never been in schism and have always adhered to Chalcedon.  They take their name from their founder St. Maron, a contemporary of St. John Chrysostom.

The Maronites used to adhere to the Heresy of Monothelitism before they united with Rome.

In addition to those mentioned by Lance....

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER
- only parts of his body remain incurrupt

ST. MARGARET MARY ALACOQUE
-her heart and brain are incurrupt

ST. CLARE OF ASSISI

ST. JOHN BOSCO

ST. MARIA MAZZARELLO

ST. JOHN NEUMANN

ST. MOTHER CABRINI

Not all of these are exactly "modern" Saints, but all are surely long after the schism between east and west. I believe this list to be correct, but I got it off of a site, I don't even know who runs the site, or anything like that, so this list may be incorrect...however, I've checked some other sources and they seem to be right.

Those who ignore history tend to repeat it.

You might be interested in the newest incorrupt relic of an Orthodox saint -

Holy Reclis of Fr. Ilie Lacatusu, Romania


The body of Father Ilie Lacatusu (GÇá1983) was exhumed a few years ago. It was found in an incorrupt state, lacking putrefaction, and had the scent of chrism. In the history of the Church, only one category of people recieved this gift: the Holy People, the Saints.

"The Maronites used to adhere to the Heresy of Monothelitism before they united with Rome."

Incorrect.  The Maronites were no more Monothelites than the Oriental Orthodox were Monophysites.  A few of their theologians spoke imprecisely about the operation of the wills of Christ ascribing one action to the two wills because they felt ascribing two actions was like decalring the two could be opposed to each other which obviously they cannot.  I think some Greek and Latin theologians like to acuse them of Monothelitism because Greeks can't stand the fact that an Eastern Chalcedonian Church disagrees with them about Rome and Latins like to think they rescued the East from heresy.

Although not yet canonized by the Catholic Chruch, the hands and face of Blessed Pope John XXXIII were discovered to be incorrupt when his remains were exhumed.
If I am correct, his body has been enshrined within Saint Peter's basilica where one may see the relics.
