The Dominican Pontiff Pius V was known to frequently kiss the feet of this cross that belonged to him.
During the Battle of Lepanto, at his home in the Vatican, he noticed the leg came off, alerting him something was not right.
The cross had been poisoned.
The intent was to kill the Pope when he kissed it.
This great relic is now kept safe by the Passionists in Rome.
It was an honor to pray here and to hear the story.
Pope St. Pius V, pray for us!
