Virgin Mary Appears on Pizza Pan....

http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=local&id=5063342

--------------------------------------------------

Faithful see vision of Virgin Mary on school pizza pan

Hundreds of faithful flock to witness the vision

KTRK By Tom Abrahams

 

- Many Houstonians say they see something on a pizza pan that's nothing short of a miracle. And now, hundreds are flocking to an east Houston house on Leslie at Hahlo to get a peek.


Apparently, they're serving something special at the cafeteria of Pugh Elementary. On Ash Wednesday, HISD employee Guadalupe Rodriguez was washing and scrubbing a sheet pan when she noticed something.

"On the third rinse I started watching it, trying to discover what it was," she recalled.

So moved by the discovery, Rodriguez took the pan to her manager, who saw the vision too.

HISD employee Coralia Pacay said, "I know it's something good for this community, and especially for this school."

What the women saw was an image that is unmistakable to them. It drew so much attention the pan was moved to a nearby home, where it has become the center of a shrine.

"I see an image of the Blessed Mother," said worshipper Vincent Santiago. "That's what I see."

Santiago came to the home to pray on the first Friday of Lent.

He said, "This is a sign that something in the world is going to happen. We don't know, but we have to keep our faith very, very strong on her."

A pilgrim from down the street, like so many whose faith is strengthened by what they know they see. And for the hard-working woman who found it? She feels blessed to be the messenger.

"It's all about faith," said Rodriguez.

More than 200 of the faithful attended the shrine on Thursday, and dozens more arrived on Friday. A service was planned for Friday evening.

WHA???? Another one?? I

WHA???? Another one??

I think Hispanic catholics are gods chosen people, not jews.

They are always seeing Mary everywhere...in their food, cooking tools, trees, walls, the water, smoke...ugh, what else....their clothes, dreams, the side of the road.....counter tops....

My god (no pun intended)

My god (no pun intended) these people are idiots.

 

"Physical reality” isn’t some arbitrary demarcation. It is defined in terms of what we can systematically investigate, directly or not, by means of our senses. It is preposterous to assert that the process of systematic scientific reasoning arbitrarily excludes “non-physical explanations” because the very notion of “non-physical explanation” is contradictory.

It would be interesting to

It would be interesting to note exactly how many irrelevant objects have been percieved as religious artifacts over the last few millenia. I wonder how high the number would be.

At the very least who ever

At the very least who ever is keeping that pan is going to have to pay for it. Otherwise they should be charged with stealing school property. Its not like the school system is loaded with money especially HISD...

reminds me of the time that

reminds me of the time that the virgin mary "appeared" on the side of a glass office building where i live. there was much flocking to the area, so people could sit in the parking lot and stare at this ameboid discoloration in the window. fun times. the building was eventually sold. i guess they got tired of people sitting around in their parking lot. (image here: http://www.tampabayskeptics.org/mary.jpg)

then one day some kid took a rock in the middle of the night and smashed the stupid thing. they replaced the glass that he broke (from the "head" area). and funny enough, the image never came back. so now she's decapitated. not so many people come and stare at it now. i guess a headless mary isn't so impressive.

This reminds me of the old lady who saw the virgin Mary in a grilled cheese sandwich.  She sold it on EBay for $10,000.

Since the Catholics seem to

Since the Catholics seem to find Mary in so many places, I think we all need to start looking for John Lennon in all sorts of places, too.

If something like this ever

If something like this ever happened near where I lived I would print out the wiki article on pareidolia and paste it all over the place.

Some people are willing to

Some people are willing to say the darnest things for their 15 minutes of publicity.

 Maybe I should declare the image of Holy Trinity in my boxer shorts. I could then sell them on eBay, make a religion around my underpants and become a boxer pope. You know, I can make the Holy Spirit to speak *makes a hand puppet*

What a better way to give a

What a better way to give a sign of true existence and convert unbelievers.... make a vague, easily mistakeable image on the bottom of a pizza pan. This will surely show those atheists, who didn't believe the grilled cheese incident or the highway underpass or the stain on the door or.....

Susan, let me read out part

Susan, let me read out part of the post, and a few comments that are outright funny:

Quote:
Angus MacDougall is a three-year-old terrier mix that has recently been blessed with the revered and holy image of Jesus Christ on his hindquarters. Is this manifestation of The Prince of Peace a coincidence or a bona fide miracle?  One thing is for certain, this apparition of the Son of God is sure to inspire controversy. Not much if any true scientific or theological inquiry has been made into the nature of this sign to date, but "seeing is believing" as little Angus' terrier-tush is obviously marked by the likeness of Christ.

The blog came with the following picture (obviously digitally "improved&quotEye-wink:

http://www.jonco48.com/blog/dogbuttjesus.gif - Please copy-paste in browser or click link. Parental advisory recommended.

I'll also quote some of the comments:

Quote:
Photoshopped...

 

By an athiest, no doubt.

Quote:
The clever aetheist who pasted in a shimmering in-n-out, purported image of the Christ seems to have developed - instead - an emaciated Shoko Asahara of Aum Shinrikyo. I'm not much convinced it is, in fact, a likeness of the Son, but the specter of a sickly Asahara awaiting the death penalty in a Japanese jail cell. Whatever else it is besides, it is dumber than shit.

I like how they assume it's

I like how they assume it's photoshopped by an atheist, instead of some other theist. Or instead of just admiting it's a case of them seeing what they want to see (Or this time, seeing what they are told to see).

Actually, that was the point for which I pasted the comments as well. the comments are funnier than the original post.
