THE CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA --Mystical Stigmata. To decide merely the facts without deciding whether or not they may be explained by supernatural causes, history tells us that many ecstatics bear on hands, feet, side, or brow the marks of the Passion of Christ with corresponding and intense sufferings. These are called visible stigmata. Others only have the sufferings, without any outward marks, and these phenomena are called invisible stigmata.

THE VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT
THE VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT
In 1912, the antiquarian book dealer Wilfrid M. Voynich bought a number of mediaeval manuscripts from an undisclosed location in Europe. Among these was a lavishly illustrated manuscript codex of 234 pages, written in an unknown script.
Voynich took the MS to the United States and started a campaign to have it deciphered. Now, almost 100 years later, the Voynich manuscript still stands as probably the most elusive puzzle in the world of cryptography. Not a single word of this 'Most Mysterious Manuscript', written probably in the second half of the 15th Century, can be understood.
CRYSTAL LINKS: THE VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT
The Voynich Manuscript has been dubbed "The Most Mysterious Manuscript in the World". It is named after its discoverer,the American antique book dealer and collector, Wilfrid M. Voynich, who discovered it in 1912, amongst a collection of ancientmanuscripts kept in villa Mondragone in Frascati, near Rome, which had been by then turned into a Jesuit College (closed in 1953).
LEONARDO DA VINCI AND THE VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT
Most of the experts indicate that the manuscript dates to the second half of the 15th century. I postulate that Leonardo da Vinci wrote the Voynich Manuscript circa 1460 when he was about 8 years old. If I am correct Yale University has a very valuable manuscript that should be of great interest to Leonardo da Vinci scholars.

NASA: VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT - ASTRONOMY PICTURE OF THE DAY
MUSEUM OF HOAXES - THE VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT
The Voynich manuscript dates back at least to the seventeenth century, though it is possibly much older. It is approximately 240 pages long, and its pages are filled with hand-written text and crudely drawn illustrations. The illustrations depict plants, astrological diagrams, and naked women. These illustrations are strange, but much stranger is the text itself, because the manuscript is written entirely in a mysterious, unknown alphabet that has defied all attempts at translation.
WORLD'S MOST MYSTERIOUS BOOK MAY BE A HOAX
The Voynich manuscript is often described as the world's most mysterious book. It is hand-written in a unique alphabet, about 250 pages long, and contains pictures of unrecognizable flowers, naked nymphs and astrological symbols.
WANAQUE, NEW JERSEY
WANAQUE RESERVOIR, NEW JERSEY, JANUARY 11, 1966--On January 11, 1966, an interesting UFO mass-sighting took place on the Wanaque Reservoir in New Jersey.The mayor, a councilman, policemen, media and residents all witnessed what was describe as a very bright and silent object hovering over the reservoir from 6:20PM until 8:58PM that evening. One policeman who was dispatched to the scene after a flood of reports was Officer Joe Cisco. "I saw a bright light. You tell me. I don't know what it was."
DR BRUCE CORNET VISITS THE WANQUE, NEW JERSEY VORTEX--As if my life isn't extraordinary enough, on Memorial Day I went to Wanaque, NJ, with Bryan Williams and Tommy Sinisi, and had my picture taken with an alien! The event occurred while Bryan was photographing me and Tommy at an interdimensional portal, which Bryan calls the Vortex. This anomalous area is located in a field on the floodplain to Acid Brook, the infamous dumping ground of mercury-contaminated sludge from a Dupont munitions factory in the adjoining valley. The factory has since been closed down, and the area is slowly recovering environmentally.
THE WANAQUE UFO--THERE HAS BEEN A RECENT RESURGENCE in the Wanaque UFO reports of Jan. 11, 1966. Officer Joe Cisco, at that time a police patrolman of Wanaque, was recently interviewed by The Record about the lights that were reported around the Wanaque Reservoir that cold winter evening.
CAUS--WEEK OF PERSONAL CONTACT EXPERIENCES--My contact started in Wanaque NJ in 1964, during a big UFO flap. I met with aliens who call themselves "Endorians". These aliens are inter-dimensional and come from an Earth of the astral plain, which takes up the same space that our Earth exists in. They told me that I would meet them again and I did. I was told all the usual things, such as "you have a mission", there are changes coming and so on. Last year I was told to start filming the sky and I photographed 1700 UFOs. That was neat but they said if I keep up the work I would go to the next level and have contact again. I did and contact came last Feb 10th.(Bryan Williams)
THE WINGED CREATURE OF WANAQUE--Being born and bred in Wanaque was probably my moral downfall as many strange, unexplained things have happened to me while I lived there with my parents (which is why, at age 18, I split that town for good). I was 9 years old in 1966, but I remember the Wanaque reservoir UFO flap like it was yesterday. I remember this bright blue light in the sky and the cop standing next to me being visibly shaken. Being a kid, I thought it was cool.
MIBs, UFOs, AND THE CARLOS ALLENDE LETTERS--Pursuit by government agencies has done little to slow down the activities of the silencers. In 1967, four bogus Air Force officers assembled policemen and civilians who had witnessed heavy UFO activity in Wanaque, New Jersey and told them that they "hadn`t seen a thing." Sternly, the citizens of Wanaque were admonished not to discuss the sightings over the Wanaque Reservoir with anyone.
FILERS FILES #45-1998--WANAQUE RESERVOIR: On November 3, 1998, Mike, Ryan and Jordan
observed UFOs When we first arrived looking south towards the hills we noticed lights. The lights seemed to be in the woods on the hill. The first light was a regular tannic white, but later
a second light appeared next to it that was green. As usual there were numerous lights flying about, turning on and off, and fading in and out throughout the course of the stay. Thirty minutes after arriving a single Fourth of July style fireworks went off over the hill while the other lights were still
UFO HISTORY PART III
--Strong medicine was needed because, as Keyhoe said, "Public fear of UFOs is at an all-time high." By the fall, Dr. McDonald was using the 'CIA-word' and causing great consternation in secret places, and at Lake Wanaque, N.J., just 50 miles from Manhattan, a spectacular series of UFO sightings took place. Then, early in 1967, McDonald was shown the Robertson Report, an event which helped launch him on a personal crusade to end UFO secrecy once and for all. His campaign picked up great resonance when, in the summer, 'Ramparts' magazine blew the CIA's cover on dozens of domestic spying operations.
WEEPING, BLEEDING AND DRINKING STATUES
THE HINDU MILK MIRACLE --On Thursday 21 September the news swept around the world of the
extraordinary miracles of milk-drinking Hindu statues. Never before in history has a simultaneous miracle occurred on such a global scale.Television, radio and newspapers eagerly covered this unique
phenomenon, and even sceptical journalists held their milk-filled spoons to the gods -- and watched, humbled, as the milk disappeared. The media coverage was extensive, and although scientists and'experts' created theories of "capillary absorption" and "mass hysteria", the overwhelming evidence and conclusion was that anunexplainable miracle had occurred.

PILGRIMS FLOCK TO SEE WEEPING NUN DOLL --Pilgrims are flocking to see a 14-inch high plastic nun apparently crying real tears in a West gift shop. A shopper spotted what seemed to be tears running down the figure's face just days after Michael Maclaire-Hillier put it in the window of his family-owned shop in Boscombe,
Bournemouth. Dozens of people have gone to Serena Gifts for a glimpse of the bizarre phenomenon, and some have asked to hold the doll while they pray for sick relatives.
WEEPING STATUES --"A six-inch-high porcelain statue began weeping tears of blood. The liquid staining the image is genuinely blood, and human at that. The Santiago coroner's office pronounced the substance is type O-4 human blood. The statue weeps regularly, particularly in the presence of children."
