Thousands Flock to Glendale Home to See ‘Weeping Mary’

Thousands of people from around the US are flocking to a home in Glendale, California where some believe a miracle has taken place — a statue of the Virgin Mary appeared to be weeping.

For the past two weeks, Glendale residents and visitors from Boston, New Jersey and elsewhere have come to Anahid Sallakian’s single-family home to pray to a Virgin Mary statuette.

Those who’ve observed the Mary statue “weeping,” or have seen its fingers move, say it is a sign from God.

It began at 10:30 p.m. July 19 when Sallakian was praying in her living room. She said she saw a star on the Mary statue, and when she touched it, her hand was covered in oil.

“She gave us the oil for nine days,” Sallakian said. “I don’t know if it’s finished.” The house was flooded with thousands of worshipers and well-wishers, she said.
