THOUSANDS MARK ANNIVERSARY FOR MIRACLE GIRL

          WORCESTER, Massachusetts (CWNews.com) - Up to 5,000 people came to a church in Worcester, Massachusetts, on Monday to visit a 15-year-old girl on the 12th anniversary of the accident that left her in a coma and began her life as an alleged conduit of miraculous healings.

          Long lines of people, many of them with chronic or terminal illnesses, walked by the bed of Audrey Santo at Christ the King Church, asking her to pray for them in an annual event that has come to mark the swimming pool accident that left the girl in a coma at age 3. Since then, mysterious oils oozing from paintings and statues, as well as numerous unexplained healings has spread the girl's story across the country.

          The bishop of Worcester has ordered an investigation in to the phenomena surrounding the little girl, although no conclusion has yet been reached.
