Forget Peter and Paul, Here’s Mary

A man who goes by the eBay name Zenteraman recently bought a new Ibanez PGM80P Paul Gilbert Signature electric guitar. After playing it for several hours over the course of 3 days and playing one gig of unspecified genre using it, he noticed what looked to him to be the image of the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus. He decided that the guitar is a miracle so of course he put the $1,399 barely used instrument on eBay for the asking price of $10,000. Plus $500 shipping, “so that I can use the most premium shipping service possible and crate it for maximum rotection.” But wait! There’s more! If you voted for Trump you’ll get a $1,000 discount. On the other hand, if you voted for Clinton there will be a  $666 surcharge. No mention of having to take a lie detector test about your political leaning so you’re on your own. Image or no image, it’s a beautiful instrument no matter whether you play Highway to Hell or Stairway to Heaven.

A Holy Limerick

mary-limerickThere is a plain house in Kiilmallock,
That recently caused a quite big shock.
On the wall did appear, an image so clear,
Sweet Mary! And that is no bullock.

When a large image appeared on Aisling O’Reilly’s grandfather’s sister’s house, she took some photos that plainly show an outline of what locals claim is the Blessed Virgin Mary. According to the Limerick Leader, within hours of being posted on Facebook, 50 people had gathered outside the house which is in Kiilmallock, County Limerick, including a local priest who reportedly said the rosary. Hopefully not in a five-line, predominantly anapestic meter with a strict AABBA rhyme scheme.

The Anti Dust Devil

dusty-jesusAustralian photographer Pete James Ingham was driving through the Mojave Desert when he spotted a dust storm in the distance. When it got close enough, he took 20 photos in rapid succession, then within five seconds the storm dissipated. After going back to Ocean Grove, Australia, he looked at the shots and noticed that of the 20, all were blurry except one. “The exposure was a bit bright,” the 43-year-old photographer said, “so I just increased the contrast in the photos and then bang, this face appeared in the dust. I thought ‘woah, that was freaky’.”

The face he saw looked like Jesus Christ.

Ingham initially thought about ways to make money from the photo but then decided he’d be happy if it helps his photography business gain exposure. “Everyone I’ve shown has said they could see it. I showed my girlfriend first and she went a bit white in the face and said it’s really freaky,” he said. “Some people mock it saying it’s just a pattern in the dust, which is probably true. I mean I still don’t believe in God.”

Kevin, Mary. Mary, Kevin.

mary-chicagoSoon after St. Kevin Catholic Church in Chicago’s South Side celebrated its 135th anniversary on June 3rd, parishioners reported seeing an image in a tree that looks like a woman with her head covered wearing a long robe. Some believe it’s the Virgin Mary. Now, thanks to word of mouth and social media, a steady stream of people have been stopping by to check out what some consider a message from God. “I think she’s watching over us right now. I think we need it with all the violence that’s going on,” Jenny Mata said.

Putting The Ultra In Ultrasound

ultrasound-jesusIt wasn’t until Aley Meyer of Evansville, Indiana, took the ultrasound picture of her soon-to-be-born boy to her baby shower that someone noticed something in the picture besides the baby. There, towards the right side is an image that appears to show Jesus on the cross. “We took a picture of it and blew it up on my phone to get a closer look and it is so much detail.  You can see the hair and his legs crossed and everything,” Aley said. She posted it on Facebook and it went viral. Aley thinks the ultrasound is a good omen. She has Crohn’s disease and feels it means baby Easton won’t. Meanwhile her grandmother bought a crucifix which Aley plans on hanging on the baby’s room. And to think, there’s a perfectly nice crucifix on the ultrasound they could frame and hang there.
