Jesus’ mom isn’t even trying any more. Puts up piss poor self-portrait.

Family Sees Virgin Mary On Living Room Wall – Portland News Story – WMTW Portland

Donna Quintana, of Meadow Lake, N.M., said it’s a much-needed blessing that appeared right before her family’s eyes Christmas Eve. Her husband saw it first.

“He noticed an image there. He said, ‘That looks like an image of the Virgin Mary,’” Quintana said.

She said the image appeared during a home construction mishap. Quintana said her husband was putting a special texture on the wall. The spray bottle he was using broke twice, which meant the texture couldn’t be wiped off fast enough. This is how it dried.

“I feel like it’s telling us something, like it’s protecting us,” Quintana said. “It’s like a miracle.”

Her family concurs.

“I think God is trying to tell us something, like a message from heaven,” said Mariah Quintana, Donna Quintana’s granddaughter.

You see that pathetic example of pareidolia up there on the left? That’s what passes for a “Christmas Miracle” these days. It’s like the Virgin Mary isn’t even trying in her art anymore. That could be a picture of my big toe for all that it looks like Jesus’ mom, but these True Believers™ are all excited about it. You’d think they’d won the lottery with the way they’re running around ascribing divine intent to a stain on the wall. You’d think a God capable of anything could come up with something a bit more impressive as a sign to his followers that their luck is about to change.

  1. I find it funny that the husband created it when he was trying to apply a texture (orange peel?) to the wall and messed up/can didn’t work. 

    So I’ll file this as even less miraculous then the water stain that appeared to be the virgin Mary after some guy couldn’t patch his roof properly.  Or the whole virgin Mary toast incident.  Funny thing is after being tricked by a friend into viewing a Goatse image.  I realized the water leak in our garage looks an awfully lot like St. Goatse.

  2. It’s one of the lobotomized crew members from the Cygnus.  Dr. Reinhardt made it throught he black hole after all, and is looking to recruit more crewmembers for his next mission.  Either that, or Mother Mary is trying out for the fencing team.

  3. The only thing I can see when I look at it is an image of the cloak (for those that aren’t into bizarre youtube clips, here’s a link

    )

    I wonder if this is a warning to all the communists out there….

  4. Actually to me that looks more like Mary than some of the Virgin Marys that have been touted in the past.  But it still doesn’t change the fact that you have people who are effectively admitting their faith in God is so weak that a lame parlour trick boosts it.  And frankly it looks suspiciously like someone drew it on the wall with a pencil

    Apparently, no matter how many they see, every new one is a “much needed” blessing. 

    Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1)
    bless·ing/ˈblɛsɪŋ/–noun
    1. the act or words of a person who blesses.
    2 a special favor, mercy, or benefit: the blessings of liberty.
    3. a favor or gift bestowed by God, thereby bringing happiness.
    4. the invoking of God’s favor upon a person: The son was denied his father’s blessing.
    5. praise; devotion; worship, esp. grace said before a meal: The children took turns reciting the blessing.
    6. approval or good wishes: The proposed law had the blessing of the governor.

    Wow, I really never looked it up, but it appears that a blessing is just about as worthless (except for definition 2 and 3 I guess…) as these Virgin Mary “images” that keep cropping up.  I wonder what kind of favor, gift or other action or material benefit this thing actually is supposed to be giving these folks?  Drive down the value of their house?  Maybe it will actually drive the value way up?  That would definitely be a blessing in my book.  What kind of spray bottle and texture was that again?
