Catholic grotto sheds "tears of blood" at Adaborkrom

A statue at the Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Grotto at the Blessed Virgin Parish in Sefwi Adaborkrom in the Bia East District of the Western Region has within the last few weeks become a hot tourist centre.
This is as a result of a recent phenomenon – the statue at the grotto has been shedding “tears of blood” uncontrollably causing people to give various spiritual interpretations to the strange happenings.
Droplets of blood also ooze from a section of the statue’s rib.
The first to witness the blood flow, Sister Monica Nkoah Boakye, said the incident has strengthened her faith in God.
Statues weeping tears of a substance which appears to be human blood, oil, and scented liquids have all been reported in countries around the world. Other claimed phenomena are sometimes associated with weeping statues such as miraculous healing, the formation of figures in the tear lines, and the scent of roses.
These events are generally reported by some Christians, and initially attract some pilgrims, but are in most cases disallowed by the upper levels of the Church or proven as hoaxes.
Reported weeping statues are most often of the Virgin Mary and are at times accompanied by claims of her appearing.
A very small number of weeping statues have been recognised by the Catholic Church.
