This entry is mainly because of my own fascination of the stigmata, which is spontaneous manifestation of bloody wounds on a person's hands, feet, forehead and back (source : ).

According to history, the first stigmatics mentioned is St. Francis of Assisi, in whom the stigmata were of a character never seen subsequently; in the wounds of feet and hands were excrescences of flesh representing nails, those on one side having round back heads, those on the other having rather long points, which bent back and grasped the skin. The feast of the Stigmata of St. Francis is kept on 17 September, which is today.

It is endured by devout Catholic believer, but with recent events, it has also been found inflicted in non-believers.

☼ Stigmata can affect women as well as men,

☼The blood may be of a different type than the person who is having the experience

☼a real stigmatic exhibits the wounds in a five-part series, and at the end of each sequence the stigmatic is sometimes known to smell a specific type of flower,

☼the blood flows freely and cannot be stopped with traditional medical care,

☼The blood flow will often go against the laws of gravity
