The Holy Virgin risked over-exposure this week after Our Lady of Mount Carmel popped out yet again to the delight of Colombian villagers. The seemingly ubiquitous deity's image was spotted on a wall at a cross-roads by a young boy in Cumural, central Colombia.
"It's true!" said one over-excited neighbour, who personally saw a picture of the Virgin, sporting a crown, robe and scapular and cradling baby Jesus in her arms.
Among theories circulating as to how Our Lady got there, the favourite appeared to be that she was "beamed from the heavens" following a thunder storm.
It wasn't long before the story, which broke on Tuesday, had gone completely viral, attracting even the most hardened cynics from around the department, reports Notillano.com.
Her Holiness does not seem to be publicity-shy. She's made a number of impromptu appearances this year, even turning up in three different guises on one palm tree in Sucre.
Some have been unkind enough to comment that the Virgin is becoming increasingly lax when it comes to finding imaginative hiding places.
Previous efforts have seen her spectacularly materialise out of burning candles, guanabana trees, coffee cups and even a stain on hospital floor in Bogota. Fortunately, this rather more pedestrian incarnation does not seem to have affected her status as a crowd-pleaser.
Our Lady of Zeitoun, Also known simply as El-Zeitoun, Zeitun or rarely Our Lady of Light, was a mass Marian apparition that occurred in the Zeitoun district of Cairo, Egypt, over a period of 23 years beginning on April 2, 1968.
More importantly, while our Lord was a child the scriptures always refers to him first, never as "mother and child". Please consider the following passages:
Mat 2:13 Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him."
Mat 2:14 And he rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed to Egypt
Mat 2:20 saying, "Rise, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the child's life are dead."
It’s a Godly Kodak moment. It is a supernatural image moment. Remember St John’s Apocalypes or Book of Revelation. John was in the Spirit. Meaning pure spirit not in the physical. He saw the past, present and future. Like One. It reads about the dragon after the woman(Israel ,The Church and Mary) in history. Also the famous rebellion( third of the angels) like it was happening new in front of St John. But John was born after that time. See you can’t put God in a Box. If you do just look up at the clear sky at night with all the stars and wonder how awesome this God truly is. You will soon realize you can’t put him in a Box.
How do you know this is a “real” Marian apparition?
so is the dove part of the apparition? Or is it real?
That being said, it's rather difficult to say that it looks like Mary if you've never seen her.
Oh Harley. I’m sure you can find something better to do than hop around FR proving yourself to be a jackass.
I’m not the one saying that I’ve seen Mary.
What, is that supposed to be a real photograph of an apparition? It looks like an image of a plastic statue, superimposed on the photograph.
I’m honestly not sure. I have always assumed that the dove was part of the apparition but now that you ask I guess it’s quite possible it was a regular old dove with good timing.
ya know, THAT would be a miracle!
Supposedly Mary appeared right before the advent of Communism to those three village children. I wonder, with everything that’s been happening, if a Chastisement is on its way.
EGYPT'S 1960S REMARKABLE VIRGIN MARY SIGHTINGS
By Amargi Hillier
(Cairo) While all in America were watching the Chicago riots at the Democratic Convention, or viewing live war zone broadcasts from Vietnam or were being mesmerized by the Watergate hearings on television, the Mother of Jesus was appearing for tens of thousands to see in the land of the pyramids at a Coptic church constructed to commemorate the area in Egypt where she had come with Joseph and Jesus when they all fled from Herod.
Starting in April, 1968, her apparitions of light changed the lives of thousands. Her appearances at Zeitun were astounding. She was seen by more than a million people.
The apparitions were broadcast by Egyptian TV, photographed by hundreds of professional photographers and personally witnessed by Egyptian President Abdul Nasser. The apparitions lasted for three years with numerous unaccountable healings recorded by various medical professionals. The local police, who initially thought the apparitions were an elaborate hoax, searched a 15-mile radius surrounding the site to uncover any type of device that could be used to project such images. They were completely unsuccessful.

A COUPLE OF EXCELLENT PORTUGESE RESEARCHERS WITH ACCESS TO THE CHURCH’S ARCHIVES IN PORTUGAL
have documented very convincingly that Fatima
was a fairly standard UFO INCIDENT with a few embelished features.
that order of thing can reportedly be well done by our own black ops/psy ops folks . . . welll, the globalist oligarchy’s such.
Who knows. But each time that Mary appears, serious tragedies happen. She appeared before two Rwandans before the massacre and the two she appeared to died in the killings. If this means that something massive is near, I hope that we FReepers manage to get through.
