Image of Virgin Mary ‘cries blood’
LILOAN, Camiguin Province – Parishioners and curious local tourists continue to visit a chapel in Camiguin where a statue of the Virgin Mary has reportedly “cried blood” and manifested changes in its figure since Tuesday morning.
The chapel is situated at Liloan, Catarman town, Camiguin, where a certain Jane Roquesa Sia reported the “miraculous crying of blood” of their patron saint Birhen sa Lourdes.
Sia, who lives in the neighborhood said she went inside the chapel Tuesday morning, carrying her six-month-old baby.
She said her attention was caught by the unusual reaction of her baby whose eyes were fixed on the statue of the Virgin Mary.
And when she looked at the statue, she was surprised to see blood coming out of its eyes.
Aside from “crying blood”, parishioners say the hands of the Virgin Mary, which were supposedly held together, are now separated.
Fr. Ricardo Dancila, parish priest of Liloan, refused to comment on the said changes on the statue of Virgin Mary, pending evaluation of the said “miracle”. (Camcer Ordonez Imam)
