Original Sista the Virgin Mary is now Our Lady of Your Grocer's Freezer:
...folks in the small West Texas town of Morton say they've seen the "Holy Mother" made of ice inside a freezer at the local grocery store.
It started as one drip from the ceiling of a freezer at Morton Thrifty Foods grocery store. Now it has become quite the sanctuary for a lot of Catholic believers.
Store employee Alma Avalos first spotted the formation in the back freezer of her store, noticing what had been a few drops of water from the ceiling that had frozen.
"I went in there, and it started forming like some kind of ice, and then Friday I went in there, and it was shaped like that," Avalos said.
As more and more people heard about the "Virgin Mary," they started coming in droves to see her, and the grocery store moved her into a freezer in the frozen foods section.
Some have had their prayers answered after visiting the ice statue.
"I had a lump in my breast, and yesterday, when I went home, it disappeared. I don't have it no more," said one woman.
Hey, journalists, here's are some good follow-up questions: Are you joking? Your lumpy boob was healed by praying to ice? No, really? Can we speak to your doctor? Do you have any, oh, I don't know, proof that Sister Stalagmite provides revolutionary medical treatments?
Welp, that's it for today's installment of "Devout Christians are better than everyone else so all news organizations must report what they say without comment, investigation, or opposing viewpoints." Tune in next time when the "Reverend" Marion "Pat" Robertson predicts catastrophic weather events in Illinois because God told him Barack Obama is secretly Muslim and Jesus shows up in a mildew stain to help one family pay their mortgage!
thanks to Mr. Jimmie for the link.

Pardon my heresy, but that thing could just as easily be a martial aid as a holy virgin.
