The Blessed Virgin Mary—Our Lady of Walsingham

Mary in Marietta?

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 12/24/15

From the CBS affiliate station in Atlanta:

What some are chalking up as simply a “faulty coating” has others believing that a divine phenomenon has touched the windowof one local church — along with the hearts of its parishioners. That’s because an image that bears a striking resemblance to the Virgin Mary seems to have appeared on a portion of glass at the Transfiguration Catholic Church in Marietta, bringing throngs of onlookers eager to see what some believe to be a Christmasmiracle. Father Fernando Molina-Restrepo posted a photograph of the window on Facebook this week and explained that image appeared on December 12, which is also the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. He wrote that many are offering their own interpretations of how the foggy figure formed, perhaps the pane’s coating reacting to a mixture of the outside elements, though there are plenty of spectators who are happy to point to their faith as the true cause.

Read the rest.
