A 33cm statue of Mother Mary bought in the Philippines has begun to shed tears in a house at Kampung Mahandoi in Penampang where it is being kept. The owner, Michael George, 52 explained that his son Melvin, 14 was the first to notice her tears at 5pm Monday. “I didn’t believe it at first until I actually saw the tears. I was astonished as I never expected anything like this. “I felt it was something miraculous,” Michael was quoted by The Star Online as saying. The statue shed tears once again at 10am yesterday.

George explained that the statue was first kept at his sister-in-law’s home before being brought to his place. It was also blessed last Sunday by Archbishop John Wong, who heads the Sabah Catholic church when he celebrated mass at the Our Lady Queen of Peace Church at Kampung Kobusak.

Father Jefferi Gumu, the assistant parish priest of the Sacred Heart Cathedral said the church had heard about the statue and that priests were assessing the situation. He said the church would also seek George’s permission to keep the statue in a nearby church so it could be viewed and assessed. With news of the statue spreading via social media, about 100 people now flock to George’s house every day to see for themselves the crying Mother Mary and to say the rosary in her presence.

“I didn’t believe it at first until I actually saw the tears. I was astonished as I never expected anything like this. “I felt it was something miraculous,” said Michael. He said the droplets also appeared on the statue at about 10am yesterday. His sister-in-law, he said, bought the statue during a trip to the Philippines a year ago and it was kept in her house as his own place was being renovated then.

“It was only recently that we brought the statue to the house and had it blessed by Archbishop John Wong (the head of the Sabah Catholic church in Sabah) when he celebrated mass at the Our Lady Queen of Peace Church at Kampung Kobusak on Sunday,” Michael said.

Michael said at least 100 people have visited daily for rosary prayers before the statue. Sacred Heart Cathedral assistant parish priest Father Jefferi Gumu said the church was aware of the statue shedding tears and priests were assessing the situation. “We will ask the owner to consider keeping it in a nearby church where it could be viewed and assessed as well,” he said.
