India    PICTURE OF BLEEDING CHRIST DRAWS HUNDREDS
People of various faiths have been lining up at a Catholic home in the western Indian city of Mumbai to see a picture of Christ that reportedly sheds blood.
   The priest in charge of Infant Jesus Church of Pant Nagar claims the phenomenon in the house in his parish is a miracle, but Bombay archdiocese is yet to make an official comment on it.
   "We are overwhelmed with this miracle as (the picture) has been bleeding for quite some time," said parish priest Father Brian Fernandes, who claims to have seen 'blood oozing from both feet of Christ.'
   Luiza Correa, who lives in the house, said she first noticed the bleeding last December, in the evening when she was alone, and started crying.
   "There has been no fixed time or day for the bleeding, but (it) has been occurring frequently," the 55-year-old mother of three told UCA News.
   She said she has kept a record of the bleeding of the image, which she brought from the Vincentian Ashram at Chembur, a Bombay suburb, two years ago.
