Give glory to the Lord, ye children of Israel, and praise him in the sight of the Gentiles:
Because he hath therefore scattered you among the Gentiles, who know not him, that you may declare his wonderful works, Tobias 13: 3-4
The Miracle of San Gennaro was repeated on Monday when the blood of Naples' patron saint liquefied at 9.30am....The miracle takes place on the anniversary of the martyrdom of San Gennaro (St. Januarius) in September 305 AD.The dried blood of the saint is preserved in two glass phials and traditionally liquefies three times a year, the Church says, thanks to the devotion and prayers of the faithful. For the faithful and superstitious, the ritual's success is a good omen for the city while its failure is a sign of impending disaster. In fact, disaster has struck on at least five occasions when the blood failed to liquefy, including in 1527 when tens of thousands of people died from the plague and in 1980 when 3,000 people were killed in an earthquake which devastated much of southern Italy.
But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. Matthew 11:24
