"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Miracolo! The Blood of St. Januarius liquifies in the presence of Papa Francesco!


Miracolo!

St. Gennaro’s relic miraculously turned to liquid in Naples Cathedral today. This usually only happens on the feast of the saint on 19 September. Sepe said St. Gennaro loves the Pope, the blood has already liquefied by half." But the whole relic eventually turned to liquid. - Finish reading here.

Praise God!

San Gennaro, pray for the Pope!
San Gennaro, pray for the Church!
San Gennaro, pray for the martyrs!
San Gennaro, Pray for us!




Thanks to Yaya for the story.

  2. I thanked the Lord because in His mercy, He reminded us He lives and lives through His saints and lives for us all in those who bear witness to His truth so that we too might live and be complete and share in His joy.

  5. Miracles glorify God. This miracle will edify Pope Francis. I thank God for this event.

  6. This miracle occurred also in the presence of Pope Pius IX in 1848, two years after his election. A series of terrorist acts sponsored by Italian liberals and nationalists, which included the assassination of his Minister of the Interior, Pellegrino Rossi, among others, and which forced him briefly to flee Rome in November 1848 led to his growing skepticism towards the liberal, nationalist agenda (source Wikipédia).
