Blood of St. Januarius liquifies
CWN - September 21, 2011
The blood of St. Januarius, a bishop martyred during the reign of the Emperor Diocletian, has again liquified.
When Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe of Naples removed the phial of the saint’s blood from the safe in which it is kept, he announced that the blood had already liquified. “Saint Januarius has listened to our prayers,” he said, leading to sustained applause from the crowd gathered in the cathedral.
