|Our Lady Who Cried - Article
We often wonder why Our Lady comes to us, miraculously and cries. When we began our trip to Sicily, we didn't know about Our Lady Who Cried.
went to Siracusa because we heard of the great Greek and Roman
amphitheaters. But you cannot visit Syracuse or Siracusa as it is known
in Italy, without visiting the Shrine of Our Lady Who Cried. Quite
honestly, we were more than a little skeptical, until we discovered all
the invaluable, indisputable scientific evidence assuring us it was
legitimate. Like Bishop Ettore Baranzini, we have always had reservation
when it came to alleged apparitions and purported miracles. Only when
Mother Church verifies do we write and make programs.
The day of their
marriage, they received a plaster plaque of the Immaculate Heart of
Mary, as a wedding present. Although they were what we would call,
lukewarm Catholics, barely doing their Church duties by going to church

They discovered Antonina had toxemia. This not only caused her to have excruciating convulsions, the convulsions, at times, resulted in her suffering bouts of blindness. On the day of the miracle, August 29th, Antonina was blinded, due to a seizure resulting from her convulsions.
She was totally blind from three in the morning until eight
thirty that evening, when her eyesight was totally restored.
She said she then insisted they look closely at the image of Our Lady. They reluctantly did as she asked. When they moved closer to the image, they too saw the tears flowing from the eyes of Our Lady, and attested to the fact they, as well, saw some tears run down Her face unto the headboard of her bed.
Needless to say,
upon witnessing the image crying, they had mixed feelings - fright mixed
with awe and wonderment. They immediately set out to advise the
neighbors. They removed the plaque from the wall and carried it outside
so the neighbors could see what they had seen. The neighbors could do
nothing less than confirm that which they too had seen. The image of our
Lady was shedding tears!
