A baby boy born in Quezon City, Philippines, who bears stigmata-like sores that resemble the wounds that Jesus Christ sustained during his crucifixion, has gained the attention of thousands of Catholics in the country.
The baby, named Jejomar Castillo, was born on March 15th. Upon delivery, doctors noticed that baby Jejomar bears strange lesions on both his hands and feet, and on his forehead. His lesions are remarkably similar to the wounds sustained by Jesus Christ when both his hands and feet were nailed to the cross, and when a crown of thorns was placed on his head.
A baby was born bearing stigmata-like lesions.
Word about Jejomar’s birth and his stigmata-like lesions spread like wildfire around the hospital and in the city. As a result, a crowd of people who believe that Jejomar is a “miraculous baby” has gathered within hours outside the baby’s hospital room and in the hospital grounds in prayer.
The crowd believes that the birth of Jejomar is associated with the ‘second coming’ of Jesus Christ. Slogans and signs bearing the words “Welcome to the Saviour” and “Thank you God for sending Jejomar” are being waved around as the people chanted and prayed.

Dr. Merlyn Cruz, one of the Philippines’ top experts in the field of microbiology, states that Jejomar is suffering from a rare condition that causes localised purpura. Purpura develops as a result of bleeding from the small blood vessels near the skin surface and is characterized by red or purple rashes on the skin.
Doctors say that Jejomar suffers from a rare medical condition.
“I have to admit that this is an amazing case,” says Doctor Cruz.
“Only a handful of similar cases have been recorded throughout history, and it’s the first time on a baby, so the scientific knowledge accumulated about his pathology is very scarce. We are doing a series of tests to determine what these sores actually are and what is causing them to appear, but we have found nothing yet,” she added.
Update: Is This Hoax?
Apparently, the answer to this question is yes. The newborn in the picture is a female baby named Danica May Camacho. Baby Danica was the world’s 7 billionth baby, and she was born at Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila, Philippines.
The original photo shows that she was born healthy and without any skin discolorations.
Whether this story is real or fake and regardless of our religion, what is important is the strength of our faith.
Real Known Cases of Stigmata.
Several cases of people with stigmata have been documented; however, none of the past cases have involved a newborn child. The most famous case of stigmata is considered to be that of Saint Padre Pio de Pietrelcina, who bore the stigmata for most of his life.

Woman Busted By Airport Security After X-ray Scanner Reveals Smuggled Baby in a Bag.
This woman put newborn’s life at risk because the little boy did not have a visa.
A woman traveling from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, Philippines to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea was caught as she tried to smuggle her two-month-old baby boy by placing him in her backpack.
On Monday night, 26-year-old Jenifer Pavolaurea, a citizen of Papua New Guinea, arrived late for her 8:45 PM flight. She came rushing to the X-ray counter in the departure area and had her bag scanned. The airport staff who was manning the X-ray machines at that time detected a "live moving object" in her bag. They took the backpack, rescued the baby hidden inside, and called the attention of the immigration supervisor on duty.
A two-month-old baby was detected in a backpack.
Ultimate Love Test: Man’s Girlfriend and Ex-Partner Jump Into River To See Who He’d Save!
Ah, the things we do for love. Seriously, what were they thinking?
Every time I hear a guy say that all girls are crazy, I can't help but disagree. It's usually wrong to generalize that women are nuts, just like how it's wrong to say that all men are players. But I guess it's safe to say that, well, some girls are indeed crazy. Forgive me for breaking the 'sis code', or for backing out of the Sisterhood, but some girls are just undoubtedly insane.
Take the women in this messed up and conflicted love triangle as a perfect example of such kind of insani... err, eccentricity.
Terrifying CCTV Footage Captures Two Kids Chasing a Kidnapper Who Snatched Their Baby Brother.
What you’re about to see is every parent’s worst nightmare.
With the rising rates of crimes committed every day, the installation of security cameras just about everywhere has been a necessity. If only walls could talk, then there might be a greater probability that they would be able to share history like no other. What more if they could capture every single detail and watch its raw footage right? Thanks to the so called closed-circuit television, almost everything can be viewed and most importantly recorded.
What you are about to witness may seem an ordinary stroll in the park until this man came running with a baby on his arm. Later on, a girl was chasing after him followed by another much younger kid with a stroller. The pursuit did not end there as another two teenage boys join the marathon. What’s the chase all about? Apparently, a 22-month old baby named Owen is being abducted! All these happened in just split seconds in the quiet town of Sprague, Washington.
The father of the victim explained that their kids are usually babysitted and apparently allowed to play at the park unsupervised. That’s when the authorities said that an unidentified man spooned little Owen from his stroller and hastily took off.
