Reportedly “Crying” Statue of Mary In New Mexico Under Investigation

In the small parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Hobbs, New Mexico, the faithful believe that a statue of Our Lady is miraculously “crying”.

The pastor of the parish, Father Jose Segura, says parishioners noticed that the statue appeared to be crying after a Sunday Mass.

A parishioner, Laura Cisneros and her husband went up to the statue and found a puddle of an oil-like substance had formed on the floor below the statue. Another person wiped off the tears and Cisneros said more tears appeared. The substance had a distinctive smell. “When you smell it, it gives a scent of flowers, like it’s an essence that’s so sweet and smells really good. And it reminds us of our Virgin,” Cisneros said.

As a priest, I’ve been a bit incredulous about these types of phenomena. I don’t intend to be sensational, but God silenced me,” Father Jose Segura, said in an interview. “I asked if someone had poured water on her but that wasn’t the case. After Mass, we wiped her tears off and more came out. The statue doesn’t have any openings… We couldn’t understand. It also was emitting a strong scent of roses.”

Hundreds of people have come to the church to witness what they believe to be a miracle, but the Church, as it does in these matters, is taking a measured approach.

Father Segura contacted the Bishop of Las Cruces, Most Rev. Oscar Cantú to report the phenomenon. The bishop recommended an investigation to determine the cause, including laboratory tests of the liquid, interviews of witnesses, and investigating possible natural causes, including fraud.

Deacon Jim Winder, the vice-chancellor of the Diocese of Las Cruces, said “The Catholic Church always approaches these possibly-miraculous phenomena with a bit of healthy skepticism. Faith and reason go hand in hand.”

“The approach our investigators will take is to eliminate all possible human or natural causes of the phenomena,” he continued. “They will gather physical evidence as well as eye witness accounts, and only when every possible explanation is eliminated can a phenomenon such as this be considered as possibly being miraculous.”

Bishop Cantú added, in regards to the investigation “What are the fruits? If it’s from God, it’s going to produce positive fruits of joy, of peace, of healing – perhaps physical healing.”

  3. Yes I too believe thats a miracle, Our Lady wants all of us to convert…not to sin..coz the people of this world is going far away from God…they are more attracted towards worldly pleasures….Our Lady of Guadalupe …bless us all…shower your graces for the people living in this world to love your son Jesus Christ….Amen

  4. Our blessed Mother Mary will always intercede for all her children. She wants us all to believe in her son and to glorify him. She is pure and would never allow anyone to use her in the wrong way. Her tears of sadness are for all those that suffer disbelief, are sick, are lonely, and are only concerned with the World and what it offers.
    Look beyond and pray the rosary with all of your heart for she is there next to you praying along. Oh my dear Mother I love you and will always need your intersession for all of mankind, my family and children.

  5. Our Lady of Guadalupe is my favorite Marian apparition. I wonder if she is not only crying for us, because our time is short, but also for the many priests murdered in Mexico in recent months (22) – the last one was delivering Mass and bled a pool of blood at the feet of the statue of Mary. She has warned us so many times to turn away from sin or suffer the consequences that are on their way. God is a just God and the door is narrow to heaven. Be prepared and turn to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary for mercy and forgiveness.

  6. I do believe it’s a miracle. Please virgin Mary I ask you to heal my daughter from head to toe. I also pray for my entire family for their health and happiness.

  7. I do believe. She is crying because of all the heartship, illnesses, tragic happenings, in this world. It’s getting worse, people shooting each other, fires. We need more faith, prayers and love.

  8. i do believe and please blessed mother pray for me and my family show us the way to your son and forgive me for all the things that i have done to disappoint you and your beloved son ….. help me follow Gods will and help me with my pain in my back take this away from me please

  9. This is a miracle its my opinion l don’t know about you , l don’t need an explanation to believe it’s my faith that counts. Mother Mary l don’t know how to thank you for your love , for your so many blessings , the care that you provide and a lot more. It’s my faith that heals me – 1993 l had surgery called MODIFIED RADICAL MASTECTOMY Left breast ( Cancer ) l survive until now — l’m 62 years old because of my so deep faith to the blessed mother . I’m so sorry mother for all my shortcomings I know l’m not perfect because l’m a sinner too, please forgive me . I love you with all my heart … I’m your daughter Elma ❤️

  10. Blessed Mother, your tears for this world is surpassing, beyond our imagination. Our sins is what put your Son, our Father, to the cross, and we, this world continues to nail Him. And that is why you cry, you are crying not for Him anymore, but your tears are for us, this ungrateful world. There is still time you are saying for us to repent and turn our wicked ways, but the things of this world is too rich for much of us to detach from, so we have to pay the consequences. I beg you Mother , kindly intercede for my family, my husband, son and daughters, especially for Cristina. Amen. Amen. Amen.

  11. Why is the Virgin crying. Is it because God is about to chastise the world for our rejection of him and his commandments?. Unless man returns to God there will be no Pease.
