The judge had earlier refused to take up the case, but was overruled last month by the Court of Appeal, which agreed that Signor Cascioli had a reasonable case for his accusation that Father Righi was abusing popular credulity.

I hope this priest knows Christ and the One true God. It won't be the first time a court in Italy puts Christ on trial.May God get the glory!"Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; Let Your glory be above all the earth."-Psalm 57:5
At first I was going into the Child state and say 'Prove that you have a Brain, i can't see it'.But more scientifically you could say, 'Prove me Julis Ceasar or Leonardo Da Vinci'. And then use that as a stepping stone.Blessings.
