A Mary statue at a Hispanic Catholic church in southeastern New Mexico is drawing visitors from around the region because believers say it appears tears are flowing from the statue’s face.
Visitors of the bronze statue located inside the auxiliary building of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church said Tuesday the statue wept, like it did for several hours last Sunday, the Hobbs News-Sun reported .
“There were tears coming down her face again,” said church manager Judy Ronquillo, who was in the building on Tuesday when it took place.
Ronquillo said the statue began crying as the group inside the church finished a Rosary.
“It’s beautiful,” she said. “The tears aren’t watery, they are an oil-like substance and the tears smell like roses.” Source US News.com
This is not the first time rumours of a ‘weeping’ or ‘bleeding’ statue has drawn thousands of Catholic visitors to the scene in the faith that their prayers would be heard or that some ‘Godly’ powers were sending a message.
The Catholic church continues to deny claims that they indulge in idolatry against the very commandments of God while purpotedly being the Vicar of Christ on eath.
Exo 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Exo 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Exo 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Exo 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Exo 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
