#1LinerWeds: A Christmas Miracle?

The true gift to us will be in how we are inspired to be MORE: more forgiving, more accepting, more loving to those with whom we share our lives.

– Rev. Fernando Molina-Restrepo, pastor, Transfiguration Parish

We’ve had a little excitement at our parish church the last few days. On the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe a week ago Saturday, some people were seeing an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary in one of the windows of the parish center. Since then, people have been coming to the church to see the apparition.

The video that accompanies the story from WGCL-TV (CBS 46) shows the window as well as the image which appears in it. It looks like it could be the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. There are a number of other non-supernatural explanations for why this is appearing in the window, too: damage to the tint, streaks from the last time it was washed, the sun reflecting off something in the parking lot, etc. Father Fernando, our pastor, took to Facebook to give his thoughts about it. I thought what he said was beautiful, especially the line above from the note.

  1. How exciting!!! What fun to experience something like that. Usually one only reads about these things but to experience it first hand must be quite an adventure!
    I love Father Fernando’s quote.

    1. The real test, I think, is whether or not it’s visible when it’s dark, like today when it’s overcast and there’s little sunlight. I can’t, and won’t, say whether I think it’s an actual apparition or just an illusion, but some people are pretty excited about it. I think Father Fernando’s comment said it best. Lord knows the world needs a little more forgiveness and love these days.
