Going Out On A Limb For Jesus

Six weeks ago, Lamya Norton of McLean, Virginia, had a tree trimmer come by to cut a branch off a tree in her yard. A couple of weeks later the spot where the limb had been turned white and an image of Jesus slowly started to form on it. By Ash Wednesday they had no doubt what it was. “It’s a sign that we’re all safe and it’s, everybody is loved in our family,” says Bella. “Of course, my priest reminded me maybe it’s a reminder you should be coming to church more.” Of course.

Mary Rocks

Caroline Gray was on vacation with her husband on Valentine’s Day when she took a photo of the coastline by Newquay’s Western Beach in Cornwall, England.  When she got home and looked through the photos she saw a ghostly figure that looked like a cloaked woman holding out her arms, an image she swears hadn’t been there when she saw the cliffs in person. An image she thinks looks like the Virgin Mary. She’s positive it wasn’t a trick of the light and is researching the history of the area to see if she can find any clues about the image’s origin. Or whether Mary visits there often.

Really. Icy Mary!

Jennifer Bloomer went to work the other day at Simply Self Storage in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, as she does every day, except when she got there she saw an ice sculpture that had formed on the ground thanks to a dripping faucet. She and her coworkers agreed that the ice looked like the Virgin Mary.  They decided to chill, so they’ve got the ice safely stored in a freezer while they figure out what to do with it.

One Order Of Mary, Hold The Fajitas

Melinda Solis of La Grulla, Texas, was warming up flour tortillas for her teenage sons Tuesday when her mother noticed that one of the tortillas had a large burned spot that looked like the Virgin Mary holding the baby Jesus. She’s saving the tortilla though she’s not sure what she’s going to do with it yet. “It’s safe as long as I keep it away from my sons,” she said, “as long as I keep it away from butter.”

On The Fence About Mary

About a month ago, Rigo Garza of McAllen, Texas, was having a back yard cookout for some friends and family when someone noticed a dark area on the fence that looked like the Virgin Mary. Everyone agreed. The next day his mother underwent surgery and came through it smoothly, which Garza took to be a good sign. Since then he’s set up a small shrine in the back yard and takes it as a good omen about the new year.

Molten Mary

On December 4th, Mari Valenzuela of Alhambra, California, pulled out her rosary, lit a candle, and began praying, just as she does most nights. But this night was different. When she finished, she noticed the candle had melted to form an image that looked like a 6-inch-tall kneeling and praying Virgin Mary. She showed it to some friends and family, who also thought it looked like Mary, so she took it to her priest, who said the image proves “all that praying is a message of faith and that she’s on the right track in her life.” She hasn’t decided what she’s going to do with it, though she says she wants to share it with as many people as possible. In the meantime it stays in her refrigerator to make sure it doesn’t melt.
