Description: Frank Moore, a disillusioned Catholic priest, known in ecclesiastical circles as "The Miracle Killer" is summoned to an urgent meeting with his bishop... A marble statue, in the courtyard of a convent in a Chicago suburb, is crying tears of blood and the local priest is requesting consideration for sainthood for Helen O'Regan, a deeply devout Catholic woman who had lived in the convent until her death, whom the community believe responsible for the healing "tears". Struggling with his faith and unwilling to again pay the emotional toll of an investigation proving fraud, Frank is nevertheless persuaded to investigate Helen's life. His first interview, with Helen's daughter, Roxanne, increases his inner turmoil as he finds himself very attracted to the girl.
