Both Jesus and Mary love wood. Here’s a selection and if you’re still not convinced that the heavenly pair are making cameo appearances, then there’s no hope for you.
The Church of Our Lady of Velankanni, in Mumbai, has a statue of Jesus with water – it must be holy water – trickling down from the toes. This blessed water is collected and the church is a site of pilgrimage. However the miracle was caused by faulty plumbing and not divine intervention. The noted […]
I can’t tell you much about this one, probably because there isn’t much to tell. It’s an iron. It’s in a house in Boston, USA. It was manufactured for the Wal-Mart house brand, with a basic dial for fabric settings and a steam/dry switch. It has a scorch mark. It must be Jesus. At least, […]

This time she’s appeared in the fat, grease and grunge at the bottom of a George Foreman Grill. John Milanos was grilling a hamburger when […]
Readers are so kind. It gives me a small ray of hope for the future of the world. Take, for example, the generous actions of Beep Beep, who is diagonally parked in a parallel universe which must be disconcerting for her. Beep Beep has been collecting the manifestations of the B.V.M. and was kind enough […]
