Statue of the Virgin Mary weeps in the house of Giulio Massa.
February 1, 2017 @ 10.30
The miraculous event occurred in the house of the Charismatic Giulio Massa.
Giulio was gathering, for priests in Brazil, a little of the oil that for years now has been exuding from the statue's face when, as has happened on other occasions starting December 1, 2015, the weeping began. As happened yesterday with the statuette of the Infant Jesus, today, too, the blood that flowed from the face of the statue of the Blessed Mother was mixed with water; this has a very specific meaning in the liturgy.
When they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. Instead, one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once blood and water came out
In the season of Easter the symbols of Blood and Water remind us of the sacrifice of "the Lamb" who conquers death (Blood) and the source that purifies (Water).
