According to reports, the blood St. Januarius liquefied in Naples and the miracle of St. Januarius was recreated on September 19, 2017. The recreation of this miracle is believed to be a good sign for the city of Naples. During the previous occurrence, on December 16, 2016, the blood did not liquefy. This was believed to be a bad omen and a sign of impending destruction and devastation.
