Theotokos Icon ‘Crying Tears of Oil’ In France

March 11, 2010

UK Telegraph — Esat Altindagoglu has been inundated with more than 50 visitors a day hoping to see the “miracle” at his house near Paris. The one-foot high painting was given to his wife Sevin by a Lebanese priest on her birthday in 2006, the Turkish-born salesman said. It began weeping oil on February 12 this year, and had been “crying” every day since, he claimed.

He said: “As word spread, people started arriving from France, then from all over Europe.

“I’ve been having between 50 and 60 people a day turning up for more than three weeks now.”

An Orthodox priest had now agreed to say mass at his home in Garges-les-Gonesse this week to thank the Virgin Mary, Mr Altindagoglu said.
