Blood of St. Januarius liquefies in Naples on feast day

CNA, Courtney Mares: The blood of Saint Januarius liquefied on Monday at a Mass in Naples, where the archbishop sharply condemned the city’s “cancerous mafia culture.”

Archbishop Domenico Battaglia of Naples held up an ampoule containing the relic of the third-century martyr-saint’s blood in the Naples Cathedral on Sept. 19, revealing the liquefaction to shouts and cheers. Report is here.
