"Las Cruces Bishop Cantu releases statement on 'crying' Our Lady of Guadalupe statue in Hobbs, N.M." Bishop Grapples with Event That May Be Supernatural


“If real, 'we must discern if it is from God or from the devil.”

“On Sunday the Solemnity of Pentecost, the statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to be crying. Parishioners observed liquid emitting from the eyes of bronze statue. The liquid was reported to have emitted three times: on Sunday, the Solemnity of Pentecost; on Monday (the next day), the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church; and on Saturday, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

“So far, we have not discerned natural causes for the statue’s emitting of liquid.”

The tears, which were tested to be oil similar to the one used in sacraments and rituals, the bishop said.


Happy cake day @mdgspencer!
