FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — A statue of the Virgin Mary in Fresno appears to be weeping. The family who owns the statue calls it a miracle and said it’s been happening for a while.
To the faithful, Maria Cardenas said the statue of the Virgin Mary is a blessing. Tears seem to well up in her right eye and stream down her face to her chin.
Cardenas said it’s beautiful the way she looks right now. Every tear, she said, is nothing short of a miracle. So she collects them in a glass and shares them with those who find their way to this home.
A lot of people come and they can’t believe it, she said, but they come with faith.
“I wanted to come see for myself,” said Richard Quintana, neighbor.
Quintana just moved in across the street and he was invited in to take a look, for the first time.
“That’s amazing. It takes the words out of my mouth– like wow. I’m so amazed,” said Quintana.
