Virgin Mary in Photos Taken at Illinois Catholic Church

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

In his Letter to the Corinthians 11:23-26, St. Paul wrote:

Brothers and sisters: I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread, and after he had given thanks, broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

Catholics believe that the Eucharist or consecrated Host is the very Body of Christ.

In every Catholic church, there is a tabernacle containing the Eucharist. Some Catholic parishes (as well as some Anglican and Lutheran churches) set aside a special time during a weekday for people to come before the tabernacle, where the Eucharist is displayed in a monstrance, to adore Jesus Christ, our Lord.


Recently, at just such an occasion, a parishioner of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Glenview, Illinois, took some pictures of the parish’s Adoration Chapel with her cell phone.

In each of the pictures (see below) is a bright light in the shape of the familiar silhouette of Jesus’ mother, Mary.


Here’s the Google translation of an account from the website Reina del Cielo (Queen of Heaven):

On more than one occasion we have seen manifestations of God that leave us very surprised. Apparitions of the Virgin Mary in the world, signs and Eucharistic miracles that reveal the real presence of Jesus in the bread and wine consecrated.

This time we have three pictures that were taken during the exposition of the Blessed, in the Adoration Chapel of the Parish of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Glenview, Illinois, United States.

We do not claim to be a real presence of the Virgin, but not completely deny. Simply we share these images that can lead to reflection.

The photographs were taken by a parishioner with her cell phone. At first glance, he says, there was nothing but the camera caught what we see.

Maria always present with his Son in the Eucharistic Bread. She calls us to worship the living God present in all the altars of the land, the daily miracle that occurs at the hands of priests, in the perfect prayer that is the Mass.
