LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - A statue of the Virgin Mary has been discovered crying in a Fresno, California home. Although the statue is only now coming to light, its owner, Maria Cardenas, says it has been crying for a year, and she saves the tears in a glass.

Whenever able, Cardenas shares the tears with people who visit.

According to witnesses, the tears are oily and smell like roses, which is a common feature of Marian phenomena such as this.

Cardenas said the statue was given to her for Mother's Day by her cousin, Jesse Lopez, who was murdered a year ago. Since his death, the statue began crying.

While the local media, KFSN was present to cover the story, they also witnessed a tear, and agreed on camera, that its texture was oily and smelled like roses.


The statue has not been studied by the Church, so there is no pronouncement yet on the authenticity of the miracle.

Even if the miracle is authentic, it is difficult to discern what message it has for the faithful, if any. Most miracles and revelations are personal matters, between Our Lady and the recipient. However, it cannot be helped that the rest of us also take inspiration and heart from her miracles.

Catholic Online asks the prayers of all the faithful for the soul of Jesse Lopez, for justice for his family, and for Maria Cardenas. May they find peace and comfort in the arms of Our Lady, now and forever.
