The ‘miracle’ happened in the same Mexican town where the preserved body of a child saint supposedly opened her eyes in September
CHURCHGOERS in Mexico claim to have seen blood pouring from the eyes of a statue of the Virgin Mary.
Pictures show dry blood covering the face of the figurine which is considered a ‘sign from god’ by devout Catholics.
TV channel Telemundo visited the church in Jalisco, Mexico, and spoke to a man who claims he saw the statue crying.
The unnamed Bible enthusiast insists he saw blood coming out of the object’s glass eyes.
Reports of Virgin Mary statues crying blood or water is not uncommon in Latin America.
Many Catholics consider the phenomena to be a miracle.
In May, a statue of Jesus’ mother mysteriously started ‘weeping’ after its owner’s cousin was brutally murdered.
Maria Cardenas, from Fresno, California, was given the holy figure as a Mother’s Day present 10 years ago.
But when her cousin Jessie Lopez was killed a year and a half ago, Maria said tears started welling up in the Virgin Mary’s right eye and streaming down her face.
And in September, viral footage showed the chilling moment the body of a little girl who died 300-years-ago appeared to suddenly open her eyes.
Tourists were visiting the Cathedral of Guadalajara which is also in Jalisco, Mexico, where the preserved remains of Santa Inocencia (St Innocence) are encased in a glass coffin.
One visitor claims to have captured the moment she appears to open her eyes when he was recording a tour of the church.
The terrifying clip was posted on YouTube where it has been viewed nearly a million times.
