Ever since we were young, we have always been taught about the Life of Jesus. Christians or most likely Catholics have knowledge about Jesus. From his Birth to his D***h, our church teaches it as if we have lived the same time with him. For us, Jesus is a very merciful and miraculous God, he is our savior, and for years, Christians like us has always believed in his power and might.
If we had all known, he d**d after going through unimaginable sufferings just to save us from our sins. He was crucified thousands of years ago and has given up his life so we could live our own.
Thus, when this baby was born on March 15, 2015, it drew attention not only to the hospital staffs and other patients, but also to the people in social media. Since the baby’s skin was full of wounds, even though it was a newborn.
The baby named Jejomar Castillo, from Quezon City who weighed 3.2 kgs, was born with stranger stigmata-like sores.
Stigmata is a term used by members of the Christian faith to describe body marks, sores, or sensations of pain in locations, corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ. Thus, people with stigmata are considered saints or are full of the Holy Spirit.
A lot of faithful Christians assembled at the Quezon City General Hospital. Everyone came to take a glimpse of the “blessed child”. Chants like “Welcome to the Saviour” and “Thank you God for Sending Jejomar” were heard around the place.
But one of the country’s top microbiological experts, Dr, Merlyn Cruz, PhD explained, that the baby suffers a very rare syndrome causing localized purpura, which is characterized by red or purple discolorations on the skin.
“I have to admit that this is an amazing case.”
“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.
However, Jejomar is not the only one with stigmata. Marie Rose Ferron who bore all the wounds of Christ at once until she d**d at the age of 33, same age Jesus Christ d**d.
