Believers gather to see 'crying' Mary statue


GLENDALE, Calif. (KABC) -- In the living room of a modest home in Glendale, they come to pray.
Some become emotional over a statue of Mary. In the Armenian Catholic community, she's Maryam.

Since last Monday, people from Glendale, and as far away as Pasadena and Montebello, have come to pray to her.

According to the homeowner, Ana Hid, who said she's a deeply religious woman, the statue started to shine, it felt oily.

"She was shining," Hid said. "I grabbed the statue, and my hand, it was all oily."

Word got out, and some admit they were curious to see what was going on inside.

"What I see is people filled with hope," said Rosie Rizo of Los Angeles. "I think there are a lot of families asking for help in different aspects of their lives, and are praying for a better today and a better tomorrow."

See why Mary of Rome is not the Mary of the Bible.

  1. "It's a blessing," said Micha Abounassar of Glendale. "It's a strong bond that unites us all, no matter who we are, where we are, where we come from. We are all the same."

    "A statue of Mary, 'Queen of Africa,' contains both a cross and a Moslem crescent. This indicates the veneration that Muslims have for Mary." [Judith A. Bauer (editor), The Essential Mary Handbook, p. 244]"

    It is happening right before our eyes. I do think Mary will be huge in the merging of all faiths.

  2. I have to ask myself, "What does a crying Mary statue have to do with salvation?" It is saddening to know that so many people place their trust in Mary, rather than the Lord Jesus Christ. May God open their eyes to the truth of the true gospel.

  3. Worshiping a statue dishonors the Son.

    That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. John 5:23,24

    Rome has it's dead sacrament, but as for me, I have the free gift of God by faith in Jesus Christ alone.

  4. Amen, Brother David!!
    How very sad that so many be deceived!!

    2 Thessalonians 2:8-13 (King James Bible)

    8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

    9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

    10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

    11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

    12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
