Virgin Mary Appears on Pizza Pan

 

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.

  I think someone  
 
is watching over the community, the school, the cafeteria, the cook and this pizza pan, this is a wholly relic that should be worshiped by pizza lovers everywhere. I am going to Huston to worship the wholly pizza pan because God wants me to. We need to find out what Guadalupe puts in her pizza and make Virgin Mary Pizza and cure the world of all its ills. Well, maybe not.

  it's pathetic  
 
it looks like nothing, and anyone praising the tray is mentally retarded

  My toilet bowl looks like a...  
 
A god to me after a hard night of drinking. I try not to worship it, but it keeps calling.. I proceed to give tribune and it wants more.

  erm  
 
Maybe it's a really pissed off hungry ghost?

  Here is a more likely explanation  
 
Superstitious guy sees a shape in a pizza pan on Ash Wednesday, is more likely than usual to assume it is a miracle.
 
  by: Fratley   02/26/2007 10:22 PM     
  I would like to know...  
 
... how anyone knows what Mary looked like? The only images that exist were painted years after her apparent life. If you don't know what she looked like, how can you recognise an image of her?

What they really mean is "Image on Pizza pan, looks a bit like a typical woman: assumed Virgin Mary because we are nut-jobs".

People will believe what they want to.

  Isn't it always  
 
the most ridiculous objects that religious figures show up in ?
The same thing has happened on a slice of toast and a piece of sheet metal - of the 2 stories that I recall

If I were a diety, trying to send a message to my peeps, I might try something a little more obvious

but.....I never get tired of hearing stories like this. They make me feel smart :)

  @caution2  
 
Thanks for the pic

I can't believe that is what the fuss is about. Looks like a one-eared rabbit to me.

All hail the bunny-god. Allah and Amen.

  Since the image is mostly...  
 
A shape of a "head with long hair"... there aren't really any facial features....
SO, to me.. I see the image of Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas.
God bless Tim Burton!

Skeptic Magazine founder Michael Shermer takes us on a hilarious romp through the strange claims we humans put forth as truth - from alien encounters to Virgin Mary sightings on pizza pies, to hidden messages revealed while playing "Stairway to Heaven" backwards - and explains the evolutionary and cognitive basis for these lapses in reason. Don't miss the one-minute challenge testing your own observational skills... Shermer is the founder/publisher of Skeptic Magazine, and author of several books, including Why People Believe Weird Things. (Recorded February 2006 in Monterey, CA. Duration: 17:29)

  Come on, guys, stop!  
 
Don't you realize you're going to hell for saying all these horrible things?

; )

If you don't believe in hell, and religion survives through faith, surely hell doesn't exist?
I don't have faith in myself, so maybe I don't exist either... Oh God...

  Worshipping Pizza Pans?  
 
Worshipping Pizza Pans would indicate that they are followers of The Flying Spaghetti Monster and not Catholics.

Remember the Flying Spaghetti Monster gave his only true recipe for pizza to mankind in order to save their souls.

All worship His Noodleness.

  Praise the Lord...  
 
With guys like Dan Brown around, you would think that the Holy Mother will find some solace in a pizza box. But what do they do? They put her in the oven !! Humans are damned now. I will never eat another pizza ever again. The only way to salvation now, is to put Dan Brown inside a pizza box too.

  Turn it upside-down.  
 
Looks like a 'shroom to me. I guess someone thought we ought to have a metaphysical experience but the message got flipped. I can just imagine God's reaction as he observes...

"Oh, see Peter they found it! Now just watch as...no, no, turn it around! Damn it, no, don't start worshipping the pan! Ugh, why do I keep sending these things to morons, psychos, and welfare cases?"
 
  by: MomentOfClarity     02/27/2007 06:55 PM     
  well...  
 
I personally am an atheist but come on you guys. Can't you see that if you want people to respect your religion then stuff like this has to stop? I have a picture on my own stupid website of a dog that actually appears to have Jesus on his butt. (Im not trying to be offensive, I respect all religions, I just don't choose to believe them.)

:P

  I don't see why  
 
religion and religious people should be shielded away from ridicule and criticism.

Especially since some want to teach out things like creationism even though there's absolutely no scientific proof of it.

And then we have the phoney christian value politicians...they just make me sick.

  @Kaleid  
 
I'm with you. I don't understand why anyone would live their life based on the message in a mis-translated book of fiction. But, hey, each to their own.
 
  by: spearhead   02/27/2007 09:34 PM     
  Nonetheless,  
 
If they start handing out pizza slices at communion I'm going to have "rediscover" my faith!
