Devotees streamed into the church situated in Mahim locality after word spread that a patch of "blood" appeared on the picture. The picture had dark red patches just below the heart of Jesus. "Jesus is telling us that he is the living God. We all have to believe in him. We have to pray for peace," said Margaret, a devotee. Dave Parera, another devotee added, "It's faith for people to believe whether this thing is moisture or real blood."
While devotees believed it to be a miracle church priests said the phenomenon was a result of moisture.
