• Miracle Mary Mouths Off in Church

    VirginMary2It’s a miracle: a pray-along Mary in an ikon on the wall of Saint Charbel’s Maronite Catholic Church in Sydney, Australia, where the madonna’s lips move in concert with the congregation’s prayers.  And it must be true, because photographic documentation exists in the form of cellphone videoclips that went mildly viral in the last week.

    Hallelujah.

    But wait.  Watch the clips again, and you will see this is even more of a miracle than advertised.  Not only are Mary’s lips moving in prayer, but also the angels are presumably singing along, the kid is babbling, and the kid’s hand is twitching. Why, if it weren’t a miracle, you’d almost think there was something going on like, oh, pixel distortion, or compression-artifact issues.

    It’s inspiring, though, how the Mother of God, in such a world of woe, spends her time lip-synching from a so-so icon, impersonating a fencepost, manipulating tree-rings and cookie sheets, and other similar ways of making herself divinely useful.

    1. Poor Mary!
      She certainly has come down in the world.

      Used to be that she was a vessel to gestate Jesus Christ, and now … a lip sync performance artist out there in No-wheres-ville.

      Not that Sydney is not a really great burg. Don’t write to me!

      Mary’s fate is like the falloff in the power of God.
      At one time the Creator of the Universe.
      Now someone who draws pictures on tacos.
