For days, the faithful have been coming.
Hundreds have walked the steps to suite 315 of Evergreen Apartments in Surrey, wanting to see for themselves the miracle.
To the non-believer, it might appear that an oily substance is dripping from an interior wall.
But to Sanaan Alyais, it is evidence of a visit from the Virgin Mary.
“She says, ‘somebody touched me here,'” said Sandy Alyais, Sanaan’s daughter.
“She said somebody touched her here, and said ‘just look on the wall’. After she looked on the wall…the oil came.”
The Alyais have lived in the apartment for three years, and say this has never happened before.
Word has spread across Metro Vancouver, with several people entering the apartment to collect the oil and pray while Global News spoke to the Alyais family today.
Around the world, these types of instances have taken place. So far, the Surrey oil hasn’t been tested, and have been told to leave it alone by the Virgin Mary.
Global News called the Roman Catholic Diocese of Vancouver, and they say they’re treating the matter as a personal matter until they’re formally notified. The property manager for Evergreen Apartment did not respond to our request for comment.
