Thousands of people have flocked to a small town in northern Israel to view a statue of the Virgin Mary that residents say ‘weeps’ oil.

“Members of a Christian family from Tarshiha, near the Lebanon border, said they believe to have witnessed a miracle in their living room,” says Britain’ Daily Mail, adding:

“The statue’s owner Osama Khoury said that his wife Amira came home to find the statue inexplicably ‘covered with oil’.

Amira said the statue ‘spoke to her’ and told her not to be afraid. After a neighbour witnessed the oil, word soon spread.

“Parts of the statue appear to be slick with moisture, even after it is wiped off.

“The family says it is most striking when a ‘tear’ seems to roll down the statue’s cheek. They say some 2,000 people have come to see the statue over the last week.”
