Theft of John Paul Blood Relic - 28 Jan 2014
Images relating to a reliquary containing the blood of the late Pope John Paul II, which was stolen at the weekend from a small stone church in the mountains east of Rome.

The reliquary contained a blood-soaked piece of cloth, most likely from the cassock John Paul was wearing on May 13, 1981 when he was shot in an assassination attempt, the office of Monsignor Slowomir Oder, the official in charge of John Paul's sainthood cause, told Reuters.

A reporter speaks in front of a broken glass of a niche in the small mountain church of San Pietro della Ienca, near the city of L'Aquila January 28, 2014. The Catholic Church has appealed to thieves to return a reliquary containing the blood of the late Pope John Paul II that disappeared in what it called a "vile and sacrilegious theft". The gold reliquary was stolen at the weekend from a small stone church, San Pietro della Ienca, in the mountains east of Rome, where, in his younger days, the pope would slip away secretly from the pressures of the Vatican to hike and ski.
