Ever notice that when you see a clown or a cat in condensation, people laugh it off, but as soon as you see some religious crap in something, it's special?

Creepy, ignorant idol worshippers. Looks more like a wraith from Lord of the Rings.

I don't really see it, it amazes me that time and time again, people can look at windows and see religious figures. It makes me think of this: http://www.artsology.com/art_in_food.php

Personally, I think people are being ridiculous. Why would "the Virgin Mary" (if she did exist) decided to appear on a random office window? I mean really. Think logically. What, did she say, "Hmmm... I think i will leave my image on an office window today..."? This is why I am not Christian. Something that can be so easily explained with basic logic... Come to think of it, the image could be me! Or maybe it's Jesus? You know, I did take a crap last night that was somewhat in the shape of Marilyn Monroe... I think it's a sign from beyond!

Sorry people...God said dead people can not cross back over So you claim to be religeous but don't believe what God says?

WHETHER of you believe in this or not, you all sound so negative. I really feel badly for you. If any of you have read any books... IF
She decides to send us a message she can appear in a mall if she wants to..anyone heard about Lourdes, Fatima? maybe you could GOOGLE IT. And our Holy Mother is not just some dead person trying to communicate thru a medium!

I think it's sad to see so many lost souls who have no faith at all. The point is whether or not it is just a smudge on a window, it brought people together in a positive way. Is there something wrong w/that? It's amazing how nasty people can get w/their comments when one is hiding behind their computer, oh ye of little faith. That to me is sad.

I saw a picture of it, and, yeah, I could see how the smudge on the window could look like the virgin Mary but I don't think that's any great sign, rather a coincidence. Kind of like if you look up at the clouds you can make out different shapes/characters if you let your imagination go. I personally am not much of a religous person, but respect those to believe as they chose. I'm just not sure how an imagine that kind of resembles someone has any significance.

Faith is so low in our time. God is calling all who will listen, to return to FAIth in Him. The Blessed Mother Mary, mother of Our Lord Jesus, said at Medjugorge in the Spring of 1982 "It is God who gives them. My children have you not observed that faith began to extinguish itself? There are many who do not come to church except through habit. It is necessary to awaken the faith. It is a gift from God. If it is necessary, I will appear in each home."

Always the judgment of the local Bishop is to be respected after he has the proper investigation done. Whether or not this 'image' turns out to be authentic (from Heaven), people are responding to Mary's call to "Pray, pray, pray" as she stated at Fatima. These are critical days for our society, country and world for sure. The events we have experienced over the past several years seem to be intensifying, albeit some quite insignificant. However, we have been warned by Our Lord through Saint Faustina that our times are the times of Divine Mercy. Our Lady has warned her children as well and she has consistantly called for prayer and repentance.

Let those with eyes to see and ears to hear be attentive to these calls. The coming election is critical to the saving of millions more of the most innocent among us - the unborn. Let us not fall prey to the tenor of the world seeking material gain at all costs, but rather turn from our wicked ways so that God will have mercy on us. Let us turn ourselves around and fall on our knees in prayers of repentance.

It is so encouraging that the onlookers at this hospital are saying the Holy Rosary. The Feast of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary is coming October the 7th. Let the people continue to pray Our Lady's favorite prayer and ask her for protection under her motherly mantle. She is Our Mother and we are her children. She will not turn a deaf ear to us if we come as a little child to her.

Blessings and peace,

Logically all your arguments here are all fallacies. you're making straight judgements on the faith of the people. now logically how can you prove one's faith...try to answer that question please! There are plenty of things in this world that humankind cannot explain but we said it happened.
I believe Mary existed and she is our Mother and also the first disciple. Like most mothers in this world they want to show their expression of love to their children and clearly here, she has brought many together peacefully to pray with one another. Whether the sign is true or not there was something that came out of it and that was the sense of community.
In the modern day most people are always thinking of themselves.. i this, i that and so on. Anyways, I think Our Mother is coming to us for a specific reason and that's to make sure that her children are protected and to let them know that she is here to intercede for us.
