It's very hard to accept that a statue can actually move, or do anything for that matter. It is much easier to accept that it just appears that way ,because we are staring at it too long or something.
There were no cameras allowed in Mellary the last day , so we could not attempt to record what was happening, as opposite to what appeared to be happening.
Since I came back, I have spoken to several other people, who were there and thought they saw the statue move as well, to compare notes. What I found interesting was that the time they saw the statue appear to move was exactly the same time is I did. ie after " Our Lady of knock " was sung.
While most people will put all the recent apparitions down to staring at something too long or the sun , etc. None of these theories go any way to explain, for example, what happened at Kerrytown, on the 29th of September last year.
It was just after 8pm. I was less than 2 feet away from the statue there , when the heart began to glow bright red. I touched the statue with my hand, and immediately the glow disappeared. Then I took my hand away, the glow returned. All of the other people there , (14, I think) all touched , and it done the same thing. I remember thinking at the time ," this can't be happening ".
Over the following weeks, several people were cured there. I have since met two of them. They are in absolutely no doubt, that what happened to them was a miracle.
