(Sacramento, CA) - A Sacramento-area church is drawing the faithful and the curious for an unusual sight that some are calling a miracle.
In front of the Vietnamese Catholic Martyrs Church stands a statute of the Virgin Mary. The figure appears to be crying tears of blood. The tears streak down the left side of her face and onto the bodice of her garment.
Church parishioners first reported seeing the red teardrops last Wednesday.
Observers are interpreting the phenomenon in various ways. Some say Mary is crying for all of the tragic events in the world. Others see it as a premonition of what the future holds.
