Miracles happen all around us every single day. However, sometimes we simply don't know it or realize it.

Now, investigators are looking into a strange incident that is being reported from a church in New Mexico. Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Hobbs, New Mexico has allegedly been weeping oil.

“Some of the witnesses claimed it smelled of roses,” Bishop Oscar Cantu, of the diocese, told the Las Cruces Sun News. “So something similar to the oil I bless and consecrate each year that we use for baptism, for confirmations and for the ordination of the priests.”

An investigation has been launched into the claim. The Church wants to make sure they have exhausted all possible reasons for the occurrence before attributing it to the supernatural.

Cantu said he has to look into whether the tears were a hoax, but, he said, “even if it were (a hoax), we are not sure how it would be done, physically. Because it is hardened bronze. We’ve examined the interior, and there’s nothing on the interior," according to Fox News.

The diocese said some people who have engaged with the sculpture have reported “beautiful, positive fruits” since their encounter. It truly is a fascinating incident.

“I’ve read most of those written testimonies, and they are stories of tremendous faith, people who have been dealing with terrible suffering in their lives and have felt a tremendous spiritual consolation that Mary walks with us in our tears,” Cantu told the Sun News. “I can’t help but think of my own shedding of tears for the poor people who come to our border, fleeing life-threatening situations. The tears of those children who are separated from their parents. There are many reasons we would shed tears, and God stands with us in those moments," said Bishop Oscar Cantu.
