Image of Virgin Mary Appears In Hospital
Written By: Planeta UFO & Inexplicata
An employee carrying out his duties on the roof of the hospital’s thrid level yesterday afternoon was startled when he looked up and saw a figure with the features of the Virgin on one of the walls. He promptly notified hospital officials, who confirmed that the image corresponded to that of "Our Lady of Fatima, Patroness of the Sick".
Ruben Mazariegos, secretary general of the Workers’ Union of the San Juan de Dios General Hospital (USTHGSD) reported that it is: "A sign of divine favor in our struggle to keep the hospital from being privatized...last week me managed to have Government Decree 247-2002 repealed," said the union leader.
Employee reactions were varied: the faithful organized to "install an altar, by the end of this week, at the base of the figure’s feet to thank her for her protection." One of the hospital volunteer workers stated that "this is palpable proof that miracles exist. We have needed a spiritual guide for a long time now. We must now become more responsible with our medical duties."
She added that "the Virgin appears to show that she is with us and has never deserted us." Mazariegos reiterated, in turn, that "now is the time we are called to reflect and pursue our duty, which is the saving of lives. The hospital has been deserted in recent weeks and She (the Virgin) shall be our guide and counselor."
"The altar is expected to be completed in recent days so that all may visit it and pray before it for the protection of this medical center."
