Inside the Abbey of Lucedio

In 1123 the Abbey of Lucedio was built in Northern Italy. For those of you unfamiliar with an abbey, it's a church that was, or is, part of a monastery or a convent. It's run by an abbot (male) or abbess (female) and is where monks or nuns live. The Abbey of Lucedio is said to be cursed by the monks who used to live in it.


What Went Wrong at the Abbey of Lucedio?

It is written that in 1684 many young girls who lived in the area met the devil in their dreams. After seducing them, he sent them to visit the monks at Lucedio's Abbey. The girls managed to corrupt the abbey and convert the monks to Satanism. From that moment on, a long history of evil rituals, tortures, homicides, cruelty and even cases of child molestation began. Things were so twisted that the abuse reached Rome and Pope Pio VI closed the Abbey. That was on September 10, 1784 - one hundred years later.


Strange Happenings at the Abbey of Lucedio

That's not where the story ends. In fact, that's where some say it begins. In one room of the Abbey there is a pillar that mysteriously gets wet. It's called the crying column (post or pillar) and people say that it cries because of all the cruelty it's seen. The room with the crying column is called the judgement room because it's the room where all the monks made their decision about sentences for people's crimes.


The Crypt of the Abbey of Lucedio

Under the church there's a crypt where all the abbots are buried. It seems like they're all down there to guard something evil blocked in the crypt. People say that an evil presence was captured and then locked under the church. To make sure the evil presence never got out, it needed to be watched all the time. The guardians had to be powerful religious men, such as abbots. The abbots were buried in the sitting position in a circle. The strange thing about this is that all the abbots became mummified in a natural way.


Freaky Fog at the Abbey of Lucedio

Another freaky and disturbing fact about the Abbey of Lucedio is the strange appearance of fog that mysteriously rises in one area of the building - the Principato and the tower.

Be bold and initiate a short chat. This will help you to learn those little things that will come in handy later because everyone loves knowing that someone actually listened to them and cared enough to remember the small details about them. Listen carefully and be attentive to the things she tells you so that you will have them for future reference. As you talk, notice if she gives you any signs, special words or hints. All girls are different. Is she shy or outgoing? Does she act like this around other guys? Look at her body language. Leaning in, uncrossed legs, nervous voice, and dilated pupils (especially), are all signs she likes you. Another sign is if she laughs at your boring, stupid jokes. (Beware: Don't use bad jokes as a test, or you'll risk looking like a comedy dork.) She may not be able to look you straight in the eye. She might smile and laugh a lot because she is worried about giving too much away. Check for the smile. A girl that's interested in you will usually immediately smile when you start a conversation with her. The smile may disappear quickly if she's shy, but it's hard to hide an unexpected strong emotion. If she's not romantically interested, she'll likely look at you inquisitively, but she won't express any particular interest.

The first book that was read to me by my learning buddy in Sunnybrook School was Harry potter and the Sorcerer's stone. I was bowled over by the book and it took me to a different world. Harry, Ron and Hermione became my friends as well.
