While washing a cooking sheet in the elementary school cafeteria where she works, Guadalupe Rodriguez discovered an image which to her resembled the Virgin Mary. The sighting occurring on Ash Wednesday reinforced this belief.
"I think someone is watching over this community and this school district and this school," said school principal Lyda Guerrero. Since then, visitors from around the country have flocked to southeast Houston to see the image.
"Right now because it is attracting a lot of attention, we just don't want it in the school," said Rebecca Suarez, Houston Independent School District spokeswoman. It has since been moved to the home of a student's parent.
