Mexican villagers believe their crucified Christ statue moved its head during mass.


The rare phenomenon is said to have taken place in the church of Santa Ana in Tepetitlan, in the western Mexican state of Jalisco.


A video recorded by a devoted person present at the mass during Easter celebrations recorded the moment the Christ figure located in a cross allegedly moves its head.


The video has gone viral and the story of this "miracle", as some villagers have described it, has made national headlines.


Estela Gomez, one of the witnesses of this rare phenomenon, told local media: "He wants to tell us something, he wants something from us" and another villager claimed: "This could be a miracle".


However, Juan Antonio Guerra Lule, the priest, does not believe it is a miracle, but "something beautiful that happened during the Seven World sermon during mass."


He thinks that the head of the 300-year-old Christ, that is usually inside a glass coffin and was put on the cross as the tradition says during the Saint Friday celebration mass, collapsed as the fur ropes holding it to the cross were not able to hold it up properly.


"It is a natural movement, it is normal", he added.


The priest said that he had not called church authorities but he hoped that they would consider it as an unusual event.
