John Paul II and the statue of plaster from Medjugorje that cried blood

Pope John Paul II venerated this image of the Virgin of Civitavecchia. It's a statue of plaster from Medjugorje that supposedly cried tears of blood in 14 different cases.

This is according to the book titled "La Madonnina de Civitavecchia. The true story of a painful drama of love." It was written by Monsignor Girolamo Grillo.

He says the pope's personal secretary, Stanislaw Dziwisz, asked him to take the statue to the Vatican. It was June 9, 1995, three months after the bishop saw the weeping statue with his own eyes.
