How true is this?
Did this really happen in Cebu?
From this link.
A large earthquake hit the southern Philippines. It's epicenter was the island of Bohol. It also occurred in the nearby island of Cebu. The death count is 160+, and 250+ injured. The people noticed a pattern. The main buildings to collapse were the old churches. In several of these churches the only thing that remained standing was a statue of Mary. Here is one story: http://johnib.wordpress.com/2013/10/17/in-the-ruins-of-the-philippines-earthquake-two-holy-statues-stand-alone-bringing-faith-hope/
Yet, the most profound sign came from the most visited Marian Shrine in the Philippines on the island of Cebu, called Mama Mary shrine. There is a large, miraculous statue of Mary in this shrine, that has cried and cured many pilgrims. In the same church there is another statue of Mary, that appears to be Our Lady of Fatima. It has a base with the word "Portugal" on it. This base is continuous with the statue. They are one piece. The base cannot be detached from the body. Otherwise the statue would be broken into two pieces.
Here is the great miracle, which seems to be a message, a warning from Our Lady of Fatima. Right after the earthquake, pilgrims noticed and cried out in alarm that this statue had changed. Mary was now facing the wall, with her back to the people. But, the base itself, molded to the body of the statue, was still facing forward with the "Portugal" inscription!
I will try and upload the pic asap (not working from my phone).
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us! May Pope Francis and the world's bishops do as Our Lady requested.
Anyone of our friends in Cebu want to confirm this picture and story?
UPDATE: 7:32PM. Here is the original post of the one who took the picture of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima via her Facebook account. The post is in Cebuano. Thanks Patrick!
