The blood, contained in a glass case, was brought to Colombia from Germany and placed at Bogota's Central Cathedral on public display. 'Colombian Catholics want to ask John Paul II through his blood to intervene and make peace possible in the country,' said Friday Juan Vicente Cordoba, secretary of the Episcopalian Conference of Colombia. Pope John Paul II headed the Catholic Church from 1978 until his death in April 2005. He was beatified in May 2011.
