Blood of St. Januarius liquefies in presence of Pope Francis
#5
Yes interesting it is. And the Vatican Insider story is in error on one point. It did indeed liquefy for Pius IX too.

" Fleeing the Mazzini riots in 1848, Pope Pius IX was rescued by a ship sent by Francis II of Bourbon, who took him to the Royal Palace of Portici. The Pope expressed his desire to go to the Cathedral of Naples. There the miracle of St. Gennaro occurred in his presence.

As a token of his gratitude, the pontiff donated a golden chalice to the cathedral in the saint's honor. The chalice is today numbered among the “Ten Wonders of the Treasure of St. Gennaro.”
