Saint Januarius was a bishop of Benevento, Italy. When visiting prisoners, during the Diocletian reign, he too was imprisoned. They were thrown to a wild bear who didn’t harm them, then they were beheaded. For 600 years vials of St. Januarius’ blood have liquified up to 18 times each year. This miraculous event continues today and has been intensely studied by scientists.
