Rosanne Paquette, center, is overcome with emotion after visiting the mysterious statue of the Virgin Mary on Windsor's east side. The statue's owner, Fadia Ibrahim, says it weeps.

A STATUE of the Virgin Mary said to weep tears of healing oil is attracting the worship of hundreds of Catholics in Windsor, Ontario in Canada, raising the ire of neighbors and drawing the attention of city bureaucrats.

Located in the front yard of a Garvey Crescent home, the statue is said to smile during the day and weep tears of oil at night. Homeowner Fadia Ibrahim calls the supposed happenings a “miracle,” and believes the statue is delivering a message. “I think it’s a work of God and she wants the people to go back to church,” said Ibrahim, 48.

For the past three months, Catholics who have heard of the statue’s supposed powers have been gathering at the home nightly to pray. The grass on the front lawn has been trampled into the soil by worshippers, and the street – located in a normally quiet area — is constantly lined with cars that have stopped, slowed or parked so residents can catch a glimpse of the Madonna.

Janet Mendez, 37, took her two young children to take a look. “We’re a very faith-filled family, so we thought we would come over and look at what is taking place this evening, just for our own eyes.”

She said she wasn’t disappointed. “Seeing is believing, and definitely we do see her weeping – weeping for the world, weeping because there’s no love left in this world.”

    These idol-worshipers should not claim as being Catholic. They perhaps could identify themselves as such in the past but this incident exposes what they truly are.

    By the way, this sort of lunacy is treatable – someone should commit them.
