Pope Francis is being Pope Francis is being credited with a "half miracle" for turning St. Gennaro's blood to liquid in front of witnesses.

The blood is displayed in a small glass ampoule, and is usually dry, but after the pope kissed the relic, it liquefied, according to Huffington Post.

The pope was quoted as saying "we still have work to do" because only half of the blood turned to liquid. However, Vatican Insider reported that the ampoule's entire contents continued to liquefy, causing some onlookers to weep.
