Child Jesus returns to weep Cochabamba, Boliva
December 27, 2013 - Reported [here]. See/view Spanish video news report [here]. Following is a rough translation from Spanish. For the third time, the image of plaster of the child Jesus of the Gutiérrez Méndez family shed tears, human-like, while it was in a manger, owners put together in the House of one of their grandmothers, one block of temple Don Bosco, South of the city.
The replica [that cried] for the first time on December 25, 2012 has moved to their owners, who received the image as a gift last Christmas and to where, you know, was acquired by one of his cousins at the Christmas fair. The owner of the child, Maribel Méndez, said this is the third time the child cries. The second was during the Holy week and the third on December 25th. He said: "the child Jesus, which is plaster, wept on December 25 and for our family this is a miracle and a blessing".
He told that the previous Christmas, the image was in his house, in the area of the Racecourse and who this year put together a crib in Grandma's House, in the street Lord of miracles, to the South of the city. "This means, for us, that we must be more United as a family and solidarity", he said. Baby Jesus lies in a manger in the miracles of Lord Street, one block from the Temple of Don Bosco. The Catholic Church has not officially ruled on this phenomenon and also featuring studies that certify the authenticity of the fact. In Bolivia there are five religious images emanating tears or blood, the best known is the "Christ who cries" of San Pedro. It is also the Virgin weeping, in the same Chapel as the Christ in Cochabamba.
