A vial containing the late pope John Paul II’s blood will soon be winging its way to Mexico in a bid to help bring down crimes rates in the largely Catholic country, Vatican Radio reported Wednesday.
Several vials of blood were taken from Pope John Paul II during the last days of his life in 2005. They have since taken on the aura of holy relics, with Catholic faithful invited to venerate them.
That’s not all. The Vatican is also going to display vials of his blood for people to venerate.
There’s something truly creepy about the Catholic church’s obsession with the actual flesh and blood of dead people.
