If you walk into the Otranto Cathedral, you will definitely be taken aback by its beauty.  It boasts very high ceilings, intricate decorations, and a beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary as a centerpiece, surrounded by ten candles.  You might have to look a second time, though, in case you miss it the first time.  Behind the Virgin are three very tall showcases built into the walls of the Cathedral.  Yes, those are bones and skulls.  They are the skulls of the 800 martyrs.  Some might think that it's creepy, but I think that it's pretty cool.  

The day was July 28 and the year was 1480.  Around 200 Ottoman ships came sailing in toOtranto, which was then part of the kingdom of Naples.  The people of Otranto had taken to the castle and their garrison put on watch, but they had no cannons and thus no way of defending the castle.  It was long before the garrison was killed the Ottomans took over the castle.  

Later that years, in August, 800 citizens of Otranto were taken to the Hill of Minerva.  Here,Mohammed II tried to force the citizens to denounce their Catholic faith.  When all 800 refused his demands, they were beheaded on the spot.  Since then, the skull and bones of the 800 have been set into the walls of the Cathedral.  People come to visit and to venerate the 800 Martyrs from all over.  When we went, we obviously didn't go JUST to venerate these martyred peoples, we went to see if we could gain an magical insight by using the energy that obvious comes from so many slain people.  

The investigation was very brief, because it didn't take long for the energies of the altar to serve their purpose.  We were successfully able to channel the energy of the Cathedral and the altar into several pieces.  Now, each of these pieces tells what we call the 800 secrets of the Martyrs.  These are 800 powers, where each martyred individual holds one power.  They were given to the martyrs by God upon their death and we were able to syphon these energies from the altar upon which their remains rest.  

When you wear your piece, you will begin to hear the voices of the 800 martyrs.  They will speak to you, each one sharing with the secret of his or her divine power with you.  I'm not going to go over what each and everyone of the 800 powers are.  It took a while to discover them all and will most likely take you a while too.  However, the first power will begin coming to you the first day you use your piece.  It will be an adventure from there as you connect with each martyr and they give their version of white light magic!  That's 800 different powers from 800 different religious martyrs, all rolled up into one piece!  That's phenomenal power!!
