Excitement Surrounds Weeping Madonna in Argentina

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.

I'll be more impressed when all these "miracle-chasers" start taking seriously the messages of real apparitions - namely Fatima - and actually start praying and interceding for our poor world that is going to hell in a handbasket.

Real miracles happen all the time. I don't think it's warranted to presume that people who are edified by them are of ill will. Otherwise, the Church wouldn't bother to investigate them in the first place and simply tell people to be happy with the approved miracles that are there.
