Jesus’ mom shows up in Hospital window.

It seems the Virgin Mary is at it again this time showing up in a hospital window:

Thousands of people have flocked to Mercy Medical Center to see the image since a patient first reported seeing it at about 11 a.m. Tuesday, said Mark Fulco, senior vice president for strategy and marketing at the hospital.

Fulco said that the hospital was planning to replace the window, which was originally put in place in the 1970s when the building was built.

“Obviously, we didn’t change the window out when we heard. … We figure the best thing to do right now is just leave it in place, until it can be fully evaluated and we can get advice” from the diocese of Springfield, he said.

Nobody tampered with the glass or painted anything on the inside or outside, Fulco said. Glass experts have told officials that somehow water got between the two panes of the double-paned glass and the “minerals reacted and caused some type of acidic reaction that appears to have etched the glass,” he said.

“What is unusual is the image that appears to have been etched,” he said. “Many people have said it resembles the Virgin Mary or Our Lady of Guadalupe.” He had no comment on what the image looked like to him.

It’s a faulty window and somehow that’s a miracle? This has to be the worst example of pareidolia I’ve seen in some time. I mean just look at how pathetic this is:

All I can say is that if you see the Virgin Mary in that mess then you’re way more deluded imaginative than I am. For its part the Catholic church is being non-committal:

A spokesman for the diocese said it could take the church years to investigate, but called the faith of local Catholics “inspiring.”

Inspiring? I think the word they’re really looking for is insipid. “Look everyone! A vague and formless blob in a window pane! It MUST be the Virgin Mary! It couldn’t possibly be, say, Jabba the Hut!”

  1. Ha! Let me tell you what I see…

    I am being serious here, so bear me out.

    I see a naked woamn under a waterfall. She is facing towards the left. She is standing in the pool up to her waist-you can see the surface of the water near the bottom. Her head is back under the fall of water. the water is hitting her forehead. I can make out her cheekbone and chin. You can see her left arm angle back from her shoulder into the fall as well. You can see both of her breasts and left nipple-she appears to be a small ‘b’ cup….maybe an ‘a’.

    This woman is no virgin!

  2. Oh please, I look and I look, one time I see Osama with AK47, other time I see Obama speaking to believers in LA.
    What a waist of money on education of dimwits.
    Tension or stress inside of glass distorts light.
    Stress in glass is created by improper cooling during production, or can develop stress after framing, or later by uneven heating by sun.
    Catholics and dimwits go back to school, learn physics, or on your break from reading Bible read this:

    If you want to believe in miracles get Microsoft windows Vista, it will be real miracle if you get it working.

  3. But, Peter, God has made the glass stress like that. Otherwise it would just be a random pattern.  Next you’ll be trying to tell me that the giant floating crocodile was just random cloud shapes, not a warning to me against swimming in the Nile.

    I saw Sarah Palin in a bowl of oatmeal once.

    I saw the future in a bowl of porridge- it said in about 4 hours time you will need the toilet, but your bowel movements will be more regular.

  5. Andy,
    Thanks to God I don’t believe in God, God and George Carlin want me to spread the message that God does not exist.

  6. I am a Hospital Building Inspector. They better repair or replace that window which is obviously not within code specifications.  excaim

  7. One quick question:  what medication(s) was the patient taking in the hours before said patient decided that the smear was the virgin Mary?  I gotta get me some of that.  Must have been good shit.

  8. Damn James, I definitely need to look at whatever window you’ve been staring at.

    Ha! I am a true believer (in naked women-who created it all!) so I tried to outline ‘her’.

    seee??

  9. Next you’ll be trying to tell me that the giant floating crocodile was just random cloud shapes, not a warning to me against swimming in the Nile.

    Hussar- if you have avoided swimming in the Nile since getting that warning, and you haven’t been eaten by a croc yet, I would say that the warning was prophetic.

  10. Nothing here to see people. Move on! Is what I would say to them. You have to really use your imagination to see anything in that window. LOL

  11. Is it just my imagination, or are the standards for what constitutes a picture of the Virgin Mary really slipping the way they seem to be?  The GCVM is a detailed portrait by comparison to this pathetic blob.  I guess it’s only a matter of time before people will be seeing the Virgin Mary in hubcaps, hotdogs, and Palin’s hairdo.

  12. Hey, Volly, I just threw a rock in the air, and it traced the outline of the Virgin Mary.  Where’s the media? LOL

  13. I see death, the hooded figure. It is a hospital after all. What a grim sense of humor I have. Too much 4chan in my time off.

  14. When you think about Palin, be careful where you ejaculate. If you ejaculate on a windowpane, later your mother sees image of Virgin Mary, calls local prist, than what?
    Enother scebario, you ejaculate on your wife’s tits and she or you see image of Virgin Mary, than what? If you see it, would you tell her about it?
    Had to write something to make you smile, this place is dead.
    Hey wake up and write something so we can read and have fun.
