This is an interesting saint.
He was martyred for his faith by the Roman Empire in 305AD. His blood was collected by a woman named Eusebia as a relic. This blood is stored in hermetically sealed vials. The blood has hardened with time.
Inexplicably, it liquefies three times a year, including his feast day, which was yesterday.
Pray for this culture, St. Januarius, that our hardened hearts are melted by Christ’s boundless love for each of us.
