The miraculous blood of Saint Januarius did not liquefy for the third occasion this year, which to some doomsayers, signals a bad omen.
Saint Januarius, who is also known as San Gennaro, is the Patron of Naples, Italy, were he served as a Bishop before his martyrdom in 305 AD. His bone and reliquary of is blood is kept in Naples’ cathedral, the Catholic News Agency reported.
Dates of Miracles
The saint’s blood was said to liquefy three times in each year: before the first Sunday of May, the saint’s feast day on Sept. 19, and the anniversary of the December 16 Mount Vesuvius eruption. The blood only liquefied on September 16, not 19. The keepers of the relic noticed changes in the dates of liquefication after Pope Francis visited last year.
Monsignor Vincenzo De Gregorio, the Abbot of the Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro, where the relics are preserved, urged the faithful to pray. This after the yet again failed liquefication of San Januariues’ blood.
“We must not think of disasters and calamities. We are men of faith and we must pray,” Monsignor De Gregorio was quoted as saying by the CNA.
Although the miraculous relic of Saint Januarius is widely accepted by Italians, the Catholic Church has yet to officially recognize it. Even without the official recognition from the Holy See, Popes frequently visit it during their trips to Naples.
The failed liquefication of the saint’s relic has been linked to earlier predictions of late doomsayer Baba Vanga. Some of the disturbing predictions that the Bulgarian doomster include the world war next year and Trump’s destiny, Express reported.
According to the report, Vanga has an impressive 85 percent accuracy on its predictions. It was noted that he predicted that the 44th president of the United Stated would be an African American, who would also be the last one.
