On Saturday, the blood of the early Church martyr Saint Januarius liquefied in Naples, announced Archbishop of Naples Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe.
“Dear friends, dear all the faithful, once again with joy and emotion I inform you that the blood of our holy martyr and patron St. Januarius has liquefied”
Cardinal Sepe gave the news to a mostly empty Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary on the feast of Saint Januarius because of coronavirus restrictions, received by applause from those inside and outside the cathedral.
He also said the blood had “completely liquefied, without any clots, which has happened in past years,” calling the miracle a “sign of God’s love, goodness, and mercy, and of the closeness, the friendship, the fraternity of our Saint Januarius.”
He ended his address, saying: “Glory be to God and veneration to our saint. Amen.”
The blood last liquefied in May, while the city of Naples was under coronavirus lockdown.
