A statue of the Virgin Mary in the Mexican state of Colima has become the center of attention as it reportedly weeps tears, leading to discussions about the possibility of a miracle. The statue, known as the Virgin of Dolores, was first noticed crying in October, but videos of the tears gained traction on social media in mid-November. The statue, which is encased in glass, is located in the town of El Chanal near the capital city of Colima. The name “Dolores” translates to “sorrow” or pain, and it is one of the titles of the Virgin Mary in Catholicism. The phenomenon has attracted a large number of onlookers, and some have speculated that the tears could be a response to the high levels of violence in the state of Colima. The U.S. Department of State has issued a warning against travel to the entire state due to crime and kidnapping rates. However, Catholic priests have urged caution and emphasized that investigations by Church authorities and experts are necessary before any endorsement of the supposed miracle can be made. They also noted that natural explanations or fraud should not be ruled out. Instances of statues displaying unusual phenomena are rare but have occurred in various religious traditions, as seen in the case of Hindu statues in India reportedly drinking milk in 1995.
