(Study Guide) Weeping Women
Weeping Women examines the phenomena of crying statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In Syracuse in 1953, a plaster plaque of Mary shed human tears. Apparitions of Mary have transformed the small town of Medjugorje into a Mecca of religious devotion. A tiny statue of Mary in Civitavecchia, near Rome, wept tears of blood in 1995. The Weeping Madonna of Rockingham cried her first oily tears in 2002.
The study guide to accompany Weeping Women, a documentary by CM Film Productions, has been written for secondary students. It provides information and suggestions for learning activities in Religion and English.
