On Monday, worshipers in Chicago flock to a centuries-old Greek Orthodox church that is being forbidden to see what some say is a sign from God after a viewer witnessed what looked like tears , flowing from the eyes of a picture of the Virgin over the weekend.
Ref. Fr Nicholas Jonas told the Chicago Tribune that he was in his office at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Chicago early Sunday morning when an employee told him about the painting.
Jonas said that he had investigated and placed cotton balls at the bottom of the picture to absorb the oily substance that poured out of the Virgin's eyes. He posted a picture of the painting Sunday night showing streaks of liquid debris coming from the eyes of the Blessed Mother, who seem to be crying.

"Mary's crying is a sign, and the miracle is in our hearts," Laura Tovar, whose sister was a married church, told the Tribune.
