Mary On The Rocks

Irma Vega’s husband, who for some reason is remaining anonymous, was building houses in San Antonio when a special rock caught his eye. Looking closer, he saw the image of the Virgin Guadalupe on the rock. When he took it home, his wife turned the rock over and discovered an image of the Virgin Mary without the crown. They’ve set up a backyard shrine and welcome the public to 1450 Surfside to take a look.

Is The Nun Bun Still Alive?

On Christmas morning 2005 someone broke into Bongo Java, a coffee shop in Nashville, Tennessee, and stole the Nun Bun — the famous cinnamon bun that looks like Mother Teresa. I can attest to the resemblance since I saw it on my way across country in 1997. Well, it’s resurfaced. The Tennessean received a letter postmarked from Seattle that says “She’s in good hands.” Accompanying it was a photograph of a young bearded man resembling Jesus lying on a sunny beach holding the Nun Bun in his outstretched hand. It’s the third letter and photograph the newspaper has received from “Hu Dunet.” Nashville police closed the case last year.

Hot For Jesus

Two weeks ago a fire destroyed Christine York’s house in Yuba County, California. When she went back in to see what she could salvage, she found her grandmother’s rosary was intact, as was a statue of the Virgin Mary which was still filled with holy water. Feeling desperate, she said, “Lord I can’t carry it no more. I need help.” She turned around and, there on the wallpaper, was the image of Jesus Christ. She cut it out, framed it, and is keeping it, in spite of already being offered $10,000 for it.

Mary With Pepperoni

Last Wednesday, which happened to be Ash Wednesday, a lunchroom worker at Pugh Elementary School in Houston, Texas, was washing a pizza baking sheet when she saw the familiar shape of the Virgin Mary on it. Word got around and soon crowds flocked to the school. The principal gave the baking sheet to the PTA to display on an altar outside a student’s house who lives nearby. The kitchen manager wanted the baking sheet back. The lunchroom worker, Guadalupe Rodriguez, wanted to keep it to set up a permanent altar. The principal played Solomon, negotiating a deal whereby Rodriguez keeps the baking sheet, the PTA gets to display it this weekend, and the kitchen gets a brand spanking new pan. Peace prevails.

Doorway To Heaven

The Bowman family of Yucaipa, California, were days away from giving their two unruly dogs to the pound when an image they think looks like Jesus Christ appeared on the plastic flap of their pet door. A combination of dirt, claw marks, and the manufacturer’s logo, the miraculous image was enough to make them change their minds and keep the dogs. At least as long as the image remains intact.
