The statue that is reported to have oil flowing from it.

KUALA LUMPUR: Anna Pereira says she has received hundreds of calls and messages since Monday’s report of the events at her home in Pandan Indah.

A Divine Mercy painting (a depiction of Jesus in a white garment with rays emanating from his heart) and a statue of the Virgin Mary in Pereira’s home are reported to have “bled” oil, blood and even honey.

According to Pereira, Catholics from all over the country have been contacting her to set appointments to visit her home to witness the “miracles”.

“I have been getting calls and messages from the early morning ever since the news about the painting got out. Some of these calls involved a prayer group from a church that wanted to organise a tour to see the miracles,” Pereira told The Star on Tuesday.

She said that people of other religions had also contacted her for prayer requests.

Due to her work, Pereira is only able to open her house to visitors between 7pm and 9pm (from Tuesdays to Fridays) and 11am to 3pm (Saturdays) and 2pm to 7pm (Sundays).

Pereira, however, said that she would be taking off from work this Thursday (Nov 5) and would open her house from noon to 9pm. 

She said she had decided to open the house this Thursday after some senior citizens expressed their desire to visit but said they could not make the trip at night.
