The reliquary is one of just a handful in the world that contains the blood of the Polish pope, who died in 2005 and was succeeded by Benedict XVI.

According to the article it was a Vatican Bishop who works for its "Occult Studies Department" that raised the concern. Once again make of that what you will.
In Satanism there is a ritual to summon the false prophet who ushers in the AntiChrist that requires the blood of a pope and of a virgin girl/boy on the alter of Satan.
Reading Anton Lavey and Aleister Crowley rituals are pretty wicked
