On 24 May, the Dominican Order also celebrates a lesser feast of St Dominic, called the Translation of the Relics of St Dominic. This feast commemorates the occasion in 1233 when, at the urging of Gregory IX and in the presence of Theodoric, archbishop of Ravenna and papal legate, St Dominic’s body was moved to a marble sepulchre during the celebration of a General Chapter at Bologna attended by Bl. Jordan of Saxony and many brethren. Immediately a certain marvellous odour came forth from his sacred body, ‘showing clearly to all how much the saint had truly been the aroma of Christ.” This stained glass window of the saint is in the Lady Chapel of St Dominic's church, San Francisco.
