Trial By Fire(place)

It was Easter Sunday and Connie Lopez of Refugio, Texas, was crying and praying in her dining room. When she looked up she thought she saw an image of the Virgin Mary in a stone above the fireplace. “It wasn’t there in December when we were decorating it,” she says. She was called inside and forgot about the image until April 19 when fellow parishioners came over for a spaghetti dinner and one of them saw it. Since then more than 200 people from at least 26 Texas cities have dropped by to see the stone. Some see Jesus, other angels, Our Lady of Guadalupe, or the pope. Viewing hours are 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, at 406 Ymbacion St., Refugio, Texas.

Why Do You Think They Call Them Stones?

The counter of a clothing store in Redlands, California, called Cali Style, is made up of rocks held together by mortar. About two months ago the store’s handyman noticed that near the bottom was a stone that, if viewed from a few yards away, looks like Jesus’ face. “I really don’t know what I think,” store owner Jonathan Hernandez said, who perhaps not coincidentally also owns the store next door: THC Smoke Shop.

Stone-faced

A rock-cutter from Mitchell, Oregon, sliced through some agate he found near an Indian burial ground and discovered what he says “looks to be an Angel or perhaps Jesus, Mother Mary, I don’t know. But if you look close it’s standing behind a throne that overlooks what appears to be a planet.” Of course it’s for sale on eBay, where he says, “I have seen faces on rocks before, but NEVER the whole picture with other devine (sic) objects, except for ‘The Comforter,’ which I also have listed.” Of course.

Holy Pair Gets Stoned

Last week Ethel Hartman of Jackson Township, Ohio was awakened by a mysterious flash of light shining on her bed. The next day her son was working in the garden when he came across a rock with the image of the Virgin Mary on it. He then found one adorned with Jesus Christ. The family welcomes people to come and see the rocks. They live just outside Massillon, in Jackson Township, at the corner of Amhearst and Traphagen Street. This place rocks. [map]
