In honor of miraculous tears
Santuario della Madonna delle Lacrime, or translated “The Shrine of Our Lady of Tears”, was built to commemorate the miraculous tearing of a plaster effigy of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1959.
For those who do not know, this now famous miracle that occurred at the bedside of a couple named Iannuso, was later repeated in front of a throng of hundreds. Later analysis of the “tear like” fluid which the effigy emitted revealed the substance to be actual tears.
To this day thousands from around the word come to visit this spiritual place.
