Relic containing St. Pope John Paul II’s Blood stolen from Cologne Cathedral

A cloth that contains drops of Saint Pope John Paul II’s blood that was preserved in a Cathedral at Cologne has gone missing.

The disappearance of the relic on Sunday 5th of July 2016, was noticed by a visitor who quickly alerted a Church Usher. The German Police are deeply investigating the theft.

The German Police expressed how Gerd Bachner, the Cathedral’s Provost laments over the stolen relic as a huge spiritual loss.

Police said the cloth was in a glass container that had been pried from a base of a sculpture commemorating the pope’s visit to Cologne in 1980.

Gerd Bachner urged the thief to return the relic.
