July 27 – The dried blood of Saint Pantaleon usually becomes liquid on his feast day. Some 5,000 people gather to see this miraculous phenomena every year...

His blood becomes liquid each year, during the 24 hour period before his feast day. 

His name is Saint Pantaleon, and that 24 hour period is today. 

Because his feast day is today, July 27th.

So, did his blood turn to liquid this year?  I’ll try to find out and let you know.  Why is this important? 

Only twice in history has his blood NOT become liquid:

Right before World War I, and right before the Spanish Civil War in 1936. 

So, people evidently worry when the Saint’s blood fails to  liquefy.


  1. Dear Mr Ritchie
    Did it liquify this year?

    Thank you and God Bless

  2. Dear Mrs. Mick, I searched the English and Spanish online press and did not find a confirmation that it did. This makes me think that it probably did turn to liquid. Otherwise, we would have heard about it. Thank you. God bless. Robert
