People in different parts of the world are fascinated by miracles and the news of certain unusual incidents spreads quickly among locals. While the authenticity of such stories often rooted in religious or cultural beliefs can’t be verified, a large number of people do put their confidence in supernatural forces.

A large crowd has been drawn to a church near Kochi in Kerala ever since a group of children claimed to see the image of Christ being scourged in the sky followed by visions of the Virgin Mary. The sighting was preceded by a Hindu girl saying that a splash of holy water instantly cured her hearing issues.

Meanwhile adults present in the church at the time of the alleged sighting said they couldn’t see anything.
