Crowds flock before image of Virgin Mary on hospital window
By TERENCE TOH
SUBANG JAYA: An image of what seems to be the Blessed Virgin Mary on a window at the Sime Darby Medical Centre (SDMC) here is drawing crowds.
A large group of people, mostly Catholics, gathered below the area at the new wing of the hospital on Saturday, lighting candles, singing hymns and reciting prayers.
Traffic was heavy around the vicinity, with even tourist buses pulling up by the roadside. Photographs of the image, which is believed to have appeared several days ago, have gone viral on Facebook.
Access to the window from inside the building has been restricted by the hospital.
A hospital official declined to comment on the matter.
Catholic newsletter The Herald editor Rev Father Lawrence Andrew said the Catholic Church would withhold official comment until the image had been tested and verified by theologians and church authorities.
Catholics believe that Mary, as mother of Jesus Christ, is the Mother of God.
