Seeing The Light…After 30 Years

Barbara Kesterson contacted us, sending along a photograph and the tale of the rock she found 30 years ago in Korea that has the image of Jesus on it. “I found the rock in 1982 while I was stationed in Pohang, Korea, with the U.S. Army. I have always loved collecting rocks and have found some pretty amazing ones during my travels with the military. But this one is the most amazing. I actually found it while hiking in Seoul, Korea, with a couple of locals. We made many trips to temples and it was always quite a walk. I don’t really recall which temple we were hiking to on this particular trip.  I kept the rock because I was a lonely soldier farther from home than I had ever been and was missing my family.  I took it as a sign that Jesus was with me and I was not alone.” 

“I did get quite the look from the movers when it was time for me to pack up and head stateside. The only thing they required of me was to put a coat of polyurethane on the rocks that I brought back with me. Some are just rocks that grabbed my fancy at the time and there is another rock that holds the image of a rabbit, although others see a dog. Needless to say I came close to exceeding the weight limit for my belongings.”

“Well, this rock and I have been together for 30 years, which is longer than my marriage lasted, lol.  Some see Jesus in the rock and others see just a rock.  I hope you see what I saw as a young soldier of 22.”

Barking Up Another Tree

The New York City area chalks up the second Virgin Mary sighting in a tree in two weeks. Sunday night, a man noticed what appeared to be the image of Mary in the bark of a tree on the corner of Cortland and Chestnut in Sleepy Hollow, N.Y., right across the street from an abandoned church. That night 300 people gathered to look and since then there’s been a steady stream of people coming to pay homage. Joseph Zwilling, chief spokesman for the Archdiocese of New York, says the sighting won’t change the church’s plans to keep Holy Cross Church closed. So there.

Barking Up The Right Tree

On her way home from work yesterday, a bus rider noticed a crowd huddled around a tree at 60th Street and Bergenline Avenue in West New York, N.J. She says at first she thought someone had died because of the flowers around the tree and people praying, but as she got closer she noticed the image of the Virgin Mary in the tree’s bark. Eva Copantitla claims to be the first to have noticed it on Tuesday, reporting it to the city’s Mayor, Felix Roque. Since then, the police have set up a barricade to protect it from the crowds, one man says he hopes it will cure government corruption in the city, and a spokesman for the Newark Archdiocese said the image is probably “just some discoloration that resembles Our Lady of Guadalupe.” A lot.

Praise The Lord And Pass The Tilex

 A couple of months ago mold started growing on Chyanna Richards’ shower in Splendora, Texas. It wasn’t long before it started to take shape—the shape of Jesus. “I see the head, the hair, a cloak,” she says. The mold started growing while Thomas George, who also lives in the house, was in prison. He thinks it’s a sign Jesus is “watching over us to make sure nothing wrong happens or I get in trouble and go back.” One neighbor says it looks like Jesus but also kind of looks like him. No one wants to ask why they let mold grow in the bathroom for a couple of months.

Being Shadowed By Jesus

It was a week before Easter when a high school student at the Urseline Academy in New Orleans went into the national shrine of Our Lady of Prompt Succor to pray. Lo and behold! There it was, a shadow on a column beside the altar that looked remarkably like Jesus Christ. Word spread, and on Easter more than a thousand people passed through the chapel in one day. Some people who see the shadow, which is created by a floodlight shining through a chandelier, say they also see what appears to be the face of the Virgin Mary, while a few others report seeing a third image.  The chapel is open from 9:00 am-5:00 pm weekdays, and afternoons on the weekend.

Mary In The Middle

A couple of weeks ago Larry Bowers of Niland, California cut open a rock he and his son found more than ten years ago in Palo Verde, something he says he’s done thousands of times over the years. But this time the design inside was different. “It looks to me like a picture of the Virgin Mary. It’s not an absolute replica, but it looks like it,” he said. Bowers plans on donating it to the Imperial Valley Gem and Mineral Society but hasn’t contacted them yet so it could turn up on eBay yet.
