Scully and Mulder investigate the murder of a popular evangelist who claimed, falsely as it turns out, to bear the wounds Christ bore from the cross - stigmata. Mulder is aware that there have been other similar murders but when they are called to a nearby school, they meet Kevin Kryder, a 12 year-old who seems to genuinely show the signs of stigmata. The boy's father is in prison for child abuse and Mulder is skeptical about it all. Scully however struggles with her own religious views and comes to believe that the boy may be genuine. She also comes to believe that she is there to protect him. Written by

When Scully discuses Kevin's apparent bilocation with Mulder, she cites it as a miracle attributed to St. Ignatius. In fact, this is not a miracle attributed to either Saint Ignatius but to Padre Pio, a famous stigmatic and saint. None of the men appear in The Bible.
Additionally, Mulder says that was just a parable. Parables are stories told by Jesus in the Bible and only occur in the Gospel. Any stories of saints in the Bible appear after Jesus' death. See more
Sometimes we must come full circle to find the truth. Why does that surprise you?
Mostly it just makes me afraid.
Afraid that God is speaking, but that no one's listening.
