The miracle of the flex board photo image of the Mother of Lord Jesus, St Mary, kept at the Syrian Jacobite ( Yacobaaya Pally) Chapel at Kattachira near Kayamkulam in Alleppy district of Kerala in India, is continueing non-stop for one year now. The miracle was first seen by Kochu Rani - a local resident woman on 21 st October, 2009 and brought to the notice of the villagers. Soon it spread like wild fire and people from all walks of life including Church Authorities, Critics, Media experts, Political and government officials rushed to the spot to confirm the incident. At first it was thought that the Mother of the Lord was weeping, as the right eye of the photo was shedding tears. Later after a week the liquid that flew from the photo gave out a fragrance and it has been continuing for one year. More than 70 bottles of the liquid is collected so far and all the visitors are having an opportunity to enjoy its inexplicable heavenly fragrance, which as per the witness and testimony of many people , the oil like liquid is considered as a medicine that has been curing numerous diseases. People from all over the country and abroad visit the small church to witness this great miracle. The church is declared as a global Marian Pilgrim Centre by the Head of the Syrian Jacobite Church.
