St. Januarius (San Gennaro)By Anthony Parente
Over a century later evidence surfaced that a vial of St. Januarius blood was preserved. The blood, which was dried and preserved, would transform itself back into a liquid and start to bubble when it was brought near the statue of the Saint. This phenomenon is still a mystery that hasn't been solved. Many hypotheses and theories have been recorded, but none have ever been proven. This miracle has never been confirmed by the Catholic Church leading many people to believe that the substance inside the vial is not the blood of St. Januarius, but some form of compound that is capable of transforming itself from solid to liquid. Even if it was proven not to be the blood many people will continue to believe in this miracle.
