                                                      back to the topic at hand...

i don't think most Americans are catholic, so why would you attribute a Mary sighting to culture?  

i believe that on occasion, people can see Mary.  i don't understand why, but there are several credible examples of these sightings occurring.  maybe its like seeing a ghost- some people can see them and some can't.  maybe these people do  see her and even if its just condensation, i don't see the harm in them getting all spiritual.  we need more spirituality in this country.                                                        

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

Who said most most Americans are catholic?

The point was that most Americans are christian, which is certainly true. And what else are you going to attribute a Mary sighting to? The objective existence of Mary on a pane of glass?

If it happened in India, nobody would claim it was Mary, would they.

                                                      christians don't see Mary.  catholics see Mary.  

catholics pray to Mary and believe she is a figure that can hear their prayers.  a baptist would not believe in Mary like this, only that she is the mother of Jesus.  if a baptist saw this they would not assume it was Mary-  a catholic might.

                                                      the vampire myth has been fashioned by christianity. as they are scared of by the crussifix, but how could they if they have been around before the crussifixtion. same with holy water, cept lots of religions have holy water, so maybe that is just blessed water

I said this somewhere else, but I'll say it here as well, why do the people always see Mary holding a baby Jesus, I thought he supposedly died when he was about 35.

Hmm... I guess, even though she's the mother of God and all, she would have problems carrying him around on her arm with him being 35... Besides, it would look silly...  unsure.gif

DSchwartz ... you are right that the catholic faith is not prominant in the united states.. but is the most practices "christian" denomination in the world.

Sightings or visions of the Blessed Mother are seen as her blessing those who see her. She is the single most seen sighting in the faith of Catholism. She is also the most beloved in the catholic faith.  

When persons are "visited" by her many take that as  blessing that she is come to grant in them.. that is why they ask for her intercessions in prayer on persons behave for her to take to her Son. When people pray to her and they see her they feel that she is answering her prayers.

Some people take it that they do not need to see her for their faith but, that it is a privilige to see her and that they are so strog in their faith . by having a sighting or visitation that ot shows they are heard and an example of how devote they are in their faith.

But if people want to belive itīs Mary, let them do that.
If it makes them feel good.
It doesnīt hurt anybody?

So basically youre saying "We dont know anything about mary, but here's a fact about her..."

Learn consistency.
