Mexican Virgin Mary statue really is crying ‘tears of olive oil’, Catholic church officials claim

A STATUE of the Virgin Mary has cried real tears of olive oil, according to Catholic church officials.

Church leaders in New Mexico say the seven foot tall bronze sculpture is weeping the same chemical substance that, when blessed, would be sacred.

The Catholic church has claimed this statue of the Virgin Mary is weeping ‘tears of olive oil’

Photos and a video released by the church shows the statue with the liquid on the eyes, cheeks, mouth and chin.

The Washington Post reports the type of oil coming from the statue would be used in the Catholic church to anoint parishioners.

The phenomenon is said to have started at the end of May and since then it has reportedly prompted people from all over to visit the church.

Investigators are said to have examined the statue and the surrounding area and there were no signs of tampering.

The manufacturer in Mexico has also denied it could be leaking or secreting some substance.

An investigation is underway to find out if the tears were man made

The priest, Reverend Jose Segura, has said in his 12 years of priesthood, he has never seen anything like it.

Judy Ronquillo, the business manager for the church, said: “It’s something extraordinary for him. He has no words for it.”

Deacon Jim Winder said they have discovered no evidence that the events were man-made.
