Heed! O.N. (Original Nunsta) Mary comes to town, cleverly disguised as urban filth:

"We thought maybe it was Jesus Christ," but on closer inspection, the family decided, "it's the Holy Mother," Dilorazo said.

Some witnesses told WGN the image was more visible on camera or when there was less light. Officials, though, said the pattern on the wall simply might be a stain caused by road salt dripping from the expressway.

If I live to be a thousand years old, I don't think I'll ever understand people who see "visions" in stains, mold, and potato chips. If there is a Supreme Being, why would it do this? I generally strive for tolerance in this life, and most genuine expressions of faith (as opposed to political expressions of "faith") don't matter to me one way or the other. But is it wrong to think people who flock to grease spots and peculiar reflections hoping for miracles are maybe just nuts?

And I'm just waiting for one of the faithful to say this has something to do with Terri Schiavo.

Metroblogging Chicago goes all Headcrusher on the salty saint.

THE Holy Mother??? Maybe a PART of THE Holy Mother.

Then again, this would explain much about religion and sex.
