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.

If one believes in this sort of thing, multiple apparitions of Mary are not a positive sign of things to come in the immediate future.

Just sayin'.

There is a very nasty tone to this article which I don’t particularly care for.

Yeah, if you close one eye and squint real hard, it kinda looks like her ...

Mary’s a deity now?

Retarded article.

Why is it that every apparition of someone in a robe always Mary? Who’s to say it isn’t Gertrude or Betty Sue or Carlos the Cross Dresser?

“”seemingly ubiquitous deity’s image””

As a former RCC, we’re starting to see some honest reporting here....

Virgin [Mary], sporting a crown, robe and scapular and cradling baby Jesus in her arms

...whenever I hear of this Mary...she is always cradling baby Jesus... Our Paul minister received from the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) the words that said: 2 Corinthians 5:16 "Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him NO MORE [after the flesh].

Paul is ONLY talking about Christ after the flesh as a fully grown man... not a baby.

Christ, as a baby, ended in Luke 2:7,12,17...Christ was not on the CROSS as a baby... but as the full grown Son of God.

Read the Bible, the Word of God in 2 Corinthians 5:16.

Tell me where else the Word of God says that Jesus remained a baby...

Tell me why Christ is called Son of God, and not ever Baby of God...

Tell me what advantage to believers today have by remembering Christ Jesus as a baby and not a fully mature Son of God.

On a slow news day it makes good “filler”. The next thunderstorm everyone can stand on top of their houses hoping to see something. Hoisting something metallic into the air will probably help too.
