MANILA -- Traces of alleged blood were found near the eyes of an image of Mary inside the Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel in Barangay Liloan in Catarman, Camiguin Tuesday morning, local residents said.

According to Jane Roquesa, they did not notice anything unusual when they entered the chapel. She only noticed the alleged blood on the image after her six-month old child kept staring at it.

Residents were also surprised to see that the image's hands were unclasped.

Church administrators have yet to determine whether the image really cried blood.

They also advised people to continue praying. -- report from Angelo Andrade, ABS-CBN News Northern Mindanao
