The mother waited all day at home for her son to come home, but he never did. After a while the mother started to freak out so she went out asking everyone in the town if they had seen her son.
The mother was checking every street and asking every person that she saw but had no luck. Finally she came across the alley in which her son laid dead. She bursted out in tears and started screaming hysterically
When the mother found the boys body she started to sing the O Alma song. Many other people gathered around with her and started to sing along.
The men who were responsible for the murder were caught right away and sentenced to public execution by firing squad. The church played a huge role to help find the bad guys.
During the burial of the child the mother sprinkled holy water on the boy and he started singing again. The mother started crying tears of joy after the boy started to sing.
The boy said he was able to sing because the Virgin Mary placed a grain on his tongue. when the grain was removed from his tongue he finally passed away peacefully.
