This Eucharistic Miracle literally is taken from the foot of the cross. Saint Matthew the Evangelist, in describing the passion of the Lord Jesus Christ, says: “The centurion and the men with him who were keeping watch over Jesus feared greatly when they saw the earthquake and all that was happening, and they said, ‘Truly this was the Son of God!’” (Matthew 27:54).
St. Longinus was the Roman soldier who pierced the side of the Crucified Savior with a spear. He was the chief of the soldiers who were present at the Crucifixion of the Lord on Golgotha.
St. Longinus previously having been wounded in a past battle, he was blind in one eye. He was healed when he pierced the side of Jesus with his spear and some of the blood and water from Jesus fell into his eyes. Upon his healing, St. Longinus gives his profession of faith,“Truly this was the Son of God!” Recognizing the power of the Blood of Christ, gathered a portion of blood-soaked earth at the foot of the cross.
Having come to believe in the Savior, St. Longinus received Baptism from the apostles, and decided to leave military service. St Longinus secretly left Judea to preach about Jesus Christ the Son of God in his native land (Cappadocia), and two of his comrades followed him. He had always maintained the relic of the Blood of Christ taken from the foot of the cross.
St. Longinus had carried the relic of the Most Precious Blood of Christ to Mantua but in the process of time, was placed in a safe place and forgotten. Accordingly, it is reported that St Andrew, the disciple of Jesus and brother of St Peter, appeared in the dreams of two different seekers of the relic. As a result, the location of the Holy Blood in both the ninth and the eleventh centuries were located.

In December 2012, the City of Philadelphia seized the deed of Dupree Studios and granted acquisition to the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority in accordance with the Pennsylvania Eminent Domain Code. City Hall has teamed up with private developers to transform the Mantua section, including the project and development of "The Plaza", a suburban-style supermarket encompassing four full city blocks, regretfully reducing Dupree Studios to a parking lot.

Xtinguish Records presents ARSIN,who’s a Hip Hop artist from the Mantua area of Philadelphia which is also know as “Da Bottom”. Influenced by artists like James Brown, Michael Jackson, Bone Thugs, Nas, 2pac, Eminem, Naughty by Nature, Brand Nubians, Chub Rock and Marvin Gay, ARSIN later decided that music would be the best career path for him.
ARSIN had his first encounter with Hip Hop music in 1995 when he found a “Brand Nubians” cassette tape on the
ground and popped it in his radio. He went through struggles, which was one of the reasons he identified with the inspirational content in the Hip Hop music he collected. ARSIN realized he could inspire and reach people the same way. He got his name when the crowd began to scream “fire” every time he performed. He looked up different names for Fire and came up with Arson, which was later changed to ARSIN (Our-sin) because his philosophy was that “our – sin”, the idea of right and wrong affects the values of society in terms of classism, racism, political and religious beliefs. He uses his music to reflect his experiences with those issues while creating a versatile sound and performance that is guaranteed to entertain.
ARSIN’s music started spreading across the underground scene with a commercial sound which later inspired the premiere of his first single REWIND on 100.3 The Beat, a Philadelphia Hip Hop and R&B radio station. After selling mixtapes across the U.S positive feedback begin to increase because of his latest mixtape “Fire Escape pt2”. Which featured the single which became #6 on Dj Touchtones (from100.3 The beat) top ten and ARSIN later went down to #4 on the countdown.

That buzz caught the attention of other media outlets and ARSIN later did his first radio interview on 105.3 WDAS fm with Patty Jackson.
