Holy Dust Worship Club

A group of devout followers of God has founded the Holy Dust Worship Club in the community. With a strong and lucid mission, they visited each and every follower's family, and gently collected the dust on holy figures with a cloth. The cloth is hung on top of an immaculate altar in a chapel, and worshipped as a sacred object of veneration. (Contact Holy Dust Worship Club at holydustworship@gmail.com and schedule a visit to your home.)

Holy Back Worship Club

An old lady follower inhabiting a rural region in South America received a mission from the Lord in a prayer. God has bestowed on her the vision to convert from worshipping the face and the vanity of holy figures. In response to God's summons, she turned the Virgin Mary figure at her home the other way ’round, and worshipped Mary's back wholeheartedly in spirit and truth. Her confidence has prompted the cathedral there to reverse the holy figure, and inaugurated a whole new movement worshipping the holy's back. The movement has converted all walks of life around the world. Thousands of photos documenting the worship of the holy's back were sent to the club's website as a testimony of their faith. (Join us. Worship the Holy's Back. Send your photo to holybackworship@gmail.com and testify your faith.)
