MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) -- A fiberglass statue of Jesus that washed up on a sandbar in the Rio Grande three weeks ago is attracting scores of devout pilgrims to a police department lost-and-found and being hailed as a miracle.

Police in Eagle Pass, Texas, said up to 40 people a day are coming to pay homage to the five-foot-tall figurine, known as "The Christ of the Undocumented," which was found by U.S. Border Patrol agents in the river.

"Some come to pray, and some come and just touch it," police lieutenant Daniel Morales said by telephone on Monday. "We have never experienced anything like this before, and interest is growing by the day."

The border city, which lies opposite Piedras Negras in northern Mexico, has a large Mexican community. Many arrived illegally by way of the river, and most are devout Roman Catholics.

Morales said the life-like statuette, which turned up without a crucifix base, would probably be given to a church in the border city if no-one came forward to claim it within 90 days.

Well, I know a crazy Mexican Orthodox who is leaving this week to "evangelize Mexico" with a friend.  He's been Orthodox all of a year or so.  God help him.

Best to define 'Schismatic  Orthodoxy' if you want a polite response...on the other hand....

I don't know. Which Schismatic Orthodox are you referring to?  The Non-Chalcedonians?

This thread is really outrageous. I'm closing it.
