PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A relic of the recently canonized Saint John Paul II will be displayed for public veneration this weekend in Philadelphia at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul.

The relic is a vial of John Paul II’s blood.

It is normally housed at a shrine in Washington administrated by the Knights of Columbus but has been on display this summer in various American cities.

Church officials say there will be a blessing with the relic at the conclusion of each Mass on Saturday and Sunday.
