Stockton, California: Miracle Scented Virgin Mary

The Lady of the Mystical Rose statue at St. George's Church is claimed to have miraculous healing powers (demonstrated when it was in the Philippines). When the statue arrived here in 1999, it attracted many seeking its curative effects, hoping to catch a whiff of its mysterious flower odor.

Miracle Scented Virgin Mary

The statue is on the left side of the church as you enter. I asked a few parishioners who were standing outside about the statue'a miracle healing powers and they had no idea what I was talking about. I didn't smell any special scent either.
