People flock to see weeping statue of Virgin Mary

  • Hundreds of people gathered in a small town located in Israel in order to look at the statue of Virgin Mary, which residents claim "weeps" oil. 

    A Christian family residing near the Lebanon border mentioned they saw a miracle when the wife found the statue covered with oil. Amira Khoury said the statue told her to be fearless and the word spread soon after a neighbor saw it as well. 

    Parts of the statue look like they're covered with moisture even after they are wiped off. The family mentioned that it's especially fascinating when a tear rolls down its cheek.
