MISSION COMPLETED: “DELIVER A PRAYER AT SEDLEC OSSUARY”

Here’s our mission statement: “If you pledge $5 we will deliver a prayer for you at Sedlec Ossuary in Czech Republic. We will make sure your prayer’s will be heard not only by God, but also by the 40,000 dead people.”

We were shocked at how popular this Ossuary is. Gigantic buses kept unloading tourists one after another. Tripod use for photography was not allowed here. We waited for a good 45 minutes until a quiet moment and deliver all the prayers from the donors in silences.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS! Together we raised $631.88 for our charity Cool Earth for this mission! Here is the completed mission video:

Deliver a Prayer at Sedlec Ossuary

If you pledge $5 we will deliver a prayer for you at Sedlec Ossuary in Czech Republic. We will make sure your prayer’s will be heard not only by God, but also by the 40,000 dead people.

The Sedlec Ossuary is a small Roman Catholic chapel, located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints in Sedlec, a suburb of Kutná Hora in the Czech Republic. The ossuary is estimated to contain the skeletons of between 40,000 and 70,000 people, whose bones have in many cases been artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel.

Four enormous bell-shaped mounds occupy the corners of the chapel. An enormous chandelier of bones, which contains at least one of every bone in the human body, hangs from the center of the nave with garlands of skulls draping the vault. Other works include piers and monstrances flanking the altar, a large Schwarzenberg coat of arms, and the signature of Rint, also executed in bone, on the wall near the entrance.

WHAT YOU WILL GET


We will pray for you and your family.

Plus the satisfaction of saving the rainforest by donating to Cool Earth.

100% OF THE DONATIONS AFTER CREDIT CARD PROCESSING WILL GO TO COOL EARTH.
