Praise God for this amazing miracle! 🙌
The miracle of liquefaction occurred at the Cathedral’s Chapel Treasury at 10:56 a.m. local time, approximately two hours after chapel abbott Msgr. Vincenzo De Gregorio removed the reliquary from the safe.

History of the Miracle of Liquefaction
Dec. 16 is the the anniversary of Naples’ preservation from the 1631 Mount Vesuvius volcanic eruption.
The blood last liquified on Sept. 19 of this year.
According to Vatican journalist Francesco Antonio Grana, the blood “almost never” liquifies on Dec. 16.
While the Church does not officially recognize the miracle, locals consider it a “good sign” for the city of Naples.
The liquefaction miracle of St. Januarius’ blood potentially occurs three times per year at the Cathedral of Naples in Italy: the first Saturday of May (the celebration of his relics arriving at the Cathedral), on the saint’s Sept. 19 feast, and on Dec. 16.
St. Januarius was a third century bishop known for his bravery in defending his flock and was martyred during the reign of Emperor Diocletian. He is the patron saint of Naples, Italy.
St. Januarius, please pray for us!
