Fadia Ibrahim of Windsor, Ontario claims that a statue she owns, which depicts the Virgin Mary, miraculously 'weeps' myrrh, or holy oil. Pilgrims regularly visit her home, in order to see the statue. This in itself might be a cause for curiosity-- Orthodox Christians do not use statues in devotions; these are more commonly associated with the Roman Catholic Church.

Fr. John Ayoub, of St. Ignatius of Antioch Orthodox Church, where Ibrahim is a member, said he had looked into the claims.

From the article:
He said Ibrahim approached him in March with stories about the statue, which is said to weep tears of healing oil at night and which has attracted scores of pilgrims to a formerly quiet Windsor neighbourhood.

But Ayoub said he has investigated the matter and that he cannot agree with Ibrahim’s statements. He said Ibrahim and the statue do not represent the church.


He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
