Crying Statue of Mary

Crying statue of Mary shipped overseas to a Central Florida business has grabbed the attention of the Orlando Catholic Diocese and groups of worshippers after it apparently shed a black tear inside the store. I really hope to see this crying statue of mary sometime in my life.

Castle Designs in Orlando received the marble statue weeks ago from overseas, according to the report. This crying statue of mary is a reproduction of the Pieta — one of Michelangelo’s greatest works of art depicting the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Christ.

The black tear was just recently noticed at the store and owners said it appears to be coming from inside the statue.

“We started noticing that there was a small gray line every day that kept getting darker and darker,” Castle Designs CEO Les Roberts said.

“It doesn’t appear to be stained from the outside so it’s kind of unusual because it does appear to be coming form the inside,” Castle Designs representative Chris Wilson said.

Store owners said the members of the Orlando Catholic Diocese plan to come to the business and look at the statue.

“It could have been anywhere on this entire statue, why on that one spot?” Roberts said. “That’s what’s amazing.”

Groups of people have already traveled to the store to worship.

“Some people are asking for private prayers,” Roberts said. “When somebody’s here kneeling at the statue, I try to give them some time away because it’s between them and their God.”

The store has roped off the area where the statue is located and owners have decided not to sell it. The business has also offered the Orlando Catholic Diocese the chance to display the statue if they so chose, the report said.

I don’t know if you believe in miracles, apparitions etc. But I think this crying statue of Mary did really cry. Why? Any guesses?

Prayer For Souls In Purgatory

Souls in Purgatory

Prayer for Souls in Purgatory:-

O Almighty and Eternal Father, as by your will we pray for the souls in purgatory. I dedicate to you through the most pure hands of Mary, all the masses that are offered today, for your glory and for the release of the souls in Purgatory. I humbly beg you to forgive them their sins, through the grace of your beloved Son and to have mercy on them.

In reparation for the failures of these souls to show you praise, love, honor and gratitude, and for the merits which they failed to gain, I offer to you all the praise, love, honor, gratitude, and suffering with which your Son praised you while He was on Earth.

In reparation for all the negligence and indifference showed by these souls, I offer you the ardent eagerness with which Your Son accomplished all his deeds on Earth, deeds which endure and glorify you in all the Holy Masses.

In reparation for all the mistakes and faults of these souls, i offer you all the virtues of your Son, which continue to glorify you in all the Holy Masses.

In expiation of the sins of these souls, I offer you the divine Blood which your Son spilled while on earth, and which He still offers to you for us in all the holy Masses.

As recompense for all the punishments and tortures which these souls suffer, I offer you the terrible suffering and death of your beloved Son, which are renewed by him in all the holy Masses.

For the liberation of these souls from the darkness of sin, I offer you the merits which your Son had on earth, and which he still offers in all the holy Masses.

Finally to appease your strict justice, I offer you all the virtues of the most Holy Mother of God and all your saints, who suffered greatly to make up for what the souls in purgatory failed to fulfil. May the merits which they obtained, united with the suffering and death of your beloved Son attain for the souls in purgatory ever lasting freedom and peace. Amen.

Prayer to St.Michael, the Archangel

St Michael the Archangel

St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle;

be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May God rebuke him we humbly pray;

and do thou O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God,

cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits

who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen.
