John Paul II and the statue that cried blood
Pope John Paul II venerated this image of the Virgin of Civitavecchia. It’s a statue of plaster from Medjugorje that supposedly cried tears of blood in 14 different cases.
This is according to the book titled “La Madonnina de Civitavecchia. The true story of a painful drama of love.” It was written by Monsignor Girolamo Grillo.
The Vatican, in particular the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, has not yet made any official statement on the weeping statue.
