Buenos Aires (KNA) In the Argentinian city of Salto Grande there is concern about an excitement over bloody years of a Marian Statue. As the newsspaper "La Capital" reports, a biochemical test demonstrates a 99.6% certainty that it is blood. A few days earlier a local caretaker at the hospital had noticed the flow of blood during a visit to the chapel and notified the Catholic priest of the facility.
The Archbishop of Rosario, Jose Luis Mollaghan, announced in a cautious statement the "surprising" outcome. "At this point we do not have certainty", he said and warned against premature conclusions. The phenomenon will be studied further.
