Padre Pio statue weeping blood. Apparently…
In the southern Italian town of Brancaleone, a red liquid is appaarently leaking from the eyes of a bronze statue of the recently beatified Padre Pio, a stigmatic monk known for leaking the red stuff himself. And this comes from the mayor himself, a chap with the wonderful name of Gentile Scaramozzino
While the locals are limbering up for a lucrative deluge of pilgrims, the Catholic Church are urging caution, while the national consumer group (Codacons) is warning against a possible hoax.
