Virgin in a Drain

Cabinet of Wonders
is a favorite blog of mine. They always have diverse and well written pieces up there.

The item of interest here is “To see the Virgin in a stain, and Allah in a piece of beef.” With video. (copy and paste link in browser)

And a wave of the hand and smile of thanks to Lesley at The Debris Field, where I found the link.

Blog: Machine-Elf

Blogger Lesley, who has several blogs (Debris Field, Beyond the Dial) and also maintains the UFO Magazine website/blog, has a lovely blog: Machine-Elf.

The blog doesn't address Marian apparitions and UFOs in particular, but it seems to me her blog would fit here in some way. . . I'll add the link to the blogroll as well.

The image shown here is from her blog, I shamelessly stole it.

Lesley, by the way, also contributes to Women Of Esoterica, and Binnall of America.

A Disclaimer On UFO

UFO INFO is a good resource for UFO sighting news from around the world. As with many resources like this, the people who bring us these reports do it for free. What would we do without the resources and data these places bring to us, for free, and so often?

I found the following an interesting aspect of UFO Info. They have a disclaimer, I guess you’d call it, on their home page:
The study of the UFO phenomena is NOT a substitute for religious belief,
if you need emotional or spiritual fulfillment you will not find it here.

I do NOT give entries or links to UFO cults.

I’m just sharing an observation; no judgment, negative or positive, is to be inferred.

Alien Image on Door

Usually it's Mary or another religious figure, like Jesus, that appears on furniture. This time it's an alien, so says a poster at UFO Magazine blog, The Green Room. Take a look; there are two images posted, the one shown here, and a larger one.

The first word that comes to mind is "paradelia" and that's fine, but while skeptics dismiss it as "just a case of . . ." as always, in these cases, it's not as simplistic. But that's for another day!

Folk Art: Mary and UFO

I found this today; a wonderful folk art painting with a UFO and Mary. This is from a blog called "Paula's Back Log."

"Speculations on Mary as Trickster"

I wrote a piece for UFO Digest in August of 2007 on the idea of Marian Apparitions as some sort of Trickster phenomena. Can "Mary" be considered a Trickster? "Speculation on Mary as a Trickster."
