Watered Down Mary

Father Ernest Bulinda, the Rector at the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Norfolk, Virginia, was walking past the baptismal font when something caught his eye. It was a water stain, but not just any water stain. This one looked like a silhouette of the Virgin Mary. He called a parishioner who was nearby and asked what he thought. He agreed that it looked like Mary. Father Bulinda tried to keep it quiet but word spread and people have been stopping by to take a look. He has no plans to clean it up. “She’s been appearing everywhere, she’s on toast and so on and so forth so I thought we’ll just keep quiet and let it be.”

Bringing Home The Bacon

Toby Elles of Salford, England, wanted a late night snack after drinking beer with his roommates, so he put a few slices of bacon in a pan. He decided to rest on the couch while it cooked and fell asleep, waking up about an hour later with smoke filling the room. When he lifted the burned bacon he discovered the image of Jesus Christ staring at him from the bottom of the pan, this in spite of the pork product not being kosher. “I’m not going to scrub it clean though,” he says, “just in case I get struck by lightning. It’s going to take pride of place on a wall instead.”

Which Came First, The Faith Or The Egg?

Tracy Norrell of Burleson, Texas, was collecting eggs from his chicken coop Monday night when he noticed that, well, one of the eggs didn’t look like the others. It wasn’t smooth and had a cross indented in one end. He and his wife Pam think the egg was laid “straight from heaven” and is a message of encouragement. They haven’t decided what to do with the egg yet but say eating it is out of the question.

Flipping Out Over Mary

It was the day before Thanksgiving and Bianca Lopez of Glendale, Arizona, was trying to figure out something quick and easy to cook for the family. Batter Blaster pancake mix in a spray can to the rescue! When she looked at the last pancake of the day, she saw an image of the Virgin Mary burned into one side, not unlike one of Jesus spotted on a pancake in Connecticut in 2007. Lopez says the image has brought her peace and comfort, which is why she hasn’t eaten it, instead keeping it in the freezer right next to the Home Style Divine Image Eggos.

Mother Teresa Makes The Cut

Wendy Golini was stressed out about paying her bills while working at her family’s coffee shop in Melrose, Massachusetts, on November 4. As she worked, she prayed to Mother Teresa. Wiping the cutting board she was using, she noticed the image of Mother Teresa looking up at her. She was elated for about a half-hour, then “sat on the floor and cried, I was so moved.” She kept the discovery pretty quiet, only telling family and friends. “Nobody wants to be the crazy person who sees a divine entity,” she says. But once word got out she figured she’d better go public and risk it.
