    Syracuse, New York.

    Commentary states Shirley Anne found the statuette in her driveway and picked it up and kissed it. The manifestation is hailed as a miracle by the devout who offer handkerchiefs to dry the tears. Many witnesses attest to the reality of the tears. Finally the tears stopped flowing.

  • I was there and wiped these tears with a hanky from my mother. I was almost 6 years old and both my older sister and brother were also there. My Sister went to Convent School with both Shirley and Beverly. Miracles have taken place after this and are still taking place. Blessed Mother and St Anne pray for us. God Bless Lew

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.
