Vatican Unveils the Holy Lance: a Solemn Tribute to Soldier of Faith St. Longinus

Daniel Ibáñez/EWTN Vatican
A canon of Saint Peter elevates the relic of the Holy Lance one last time before returning it to its chapel on Feb. 24, 2024.

According to tradition, Longinus not only witnessed the crucifixion but also was healed of a malady of the eyes by the blood that flowed from Jesus’ side.
