* The Catholic Church has, among its various oddities, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weeping_statue statues and paintings--typically of the Virgin Mother--that are said to cry tears and other substances]]. Possibly related to the Greek thing above. The Church itself tends to be ''very'' cautious on the matter, however, and has disscarded 99% of the reports; the exceptions include a weeping statue from Syracuse, Italy (approved by local bishops in 1953) and the wooden statue from the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Lady_of_Akita Our Lady of Akita apparitions]] (approved by the local bishop in 1984 and by the Holy See in 1988).
