CATHOLICS WORRY: An ancient vial of 'miracle' blood failed to liquefy, "bad omen for 2017"
One of the most famous recurring miracles — even if one not quite
sanctioned by the Catholic Church — is the liquefaction of the dried
blood of San Gennaro, or St. Januarius, a bishop of Naples martyred
around 305 A.D. and the city's patron saint. Starting in 1389, the vial
of San Gennaro's blood typically turns liquid three times a year: on the
Saturday before the first Sunday of May; on his saint's feast day,
Sept. 19; and on Dec. 16, the day Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 1631. The
blood liquefied on Sept. 19 this year, but not on Dec. 16. "In local
lore, the failure of the blood to liquefy signals war, famine, disease,
or other disaster," Catholic News Agency reports
"...Say, 'GOD is sufficient for me.' In Him the trusters shall trust." (Quran 39:38)
