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 tomorrow, 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.
