The Archbishop’s Curia has confirmed that human blood was oozing from the eyes of the statue of the Virgin Mary in a private residence in the last few weeks.
A spokesman for the Curia said in a statement that the first report was examined by the Church Authorities and it transpired that the red liquid was human blood.

The same phenomenon was reported a few weeks later and this second incident is still being investigated, the spokesman said.

Local newspaper In-Nazzjon on Friday revealed that the statue is in a private residence in Birzebbugia.

The owner of the statue of the Immaculate Conception reported the weeping of the red liquid to the parish priest on Monday. The latter advised the owner to report to the Curia.
