Filipinos warned against making money out of 'miracles'

 | 

Philippine church leaders have warned the faithful against making money out of reported "miracles" and "apparitions" of Mary.

Fr. Melvin Castro, director general of the Confraternity of Mary Mediatrix of All Grace, noted that stories of weeping images of the Jesus' mother had surfaced in the media.

The stories followed a church declaration that a reported apparition of the Mary in the province of Batangas in 1948 has a "supernatural character."
