Following the sharing of a picture of the "Virgin Mary" who allegedly appeared to parishioners at St. Charles Lwanga in Calabar, a Catholic priest named Fr. Evaristus Bassey has stirred up controversy online.
In tweeting images of the "Virgin Mary," the priest said that many individuals, including non-Catholics, "saw her image."
He claimed that the peculiar event that occurred on Wednesday, June 22, signified God's presence with them.
"On Wednesday 22-6-2022, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in one of our parishes in Calabar, St. Charles Lwanga. It was something more than 100 people witnessed, even a Protestant pastor who came to visit his cousin, the assistant priest.
He took these pictures. The rays around her were too bright for a clear picture. She moved up to the Shrine dedicated to her and then was taken up. It was amazing, the entire aura around the parish that evening. She didn't say anything to anyone. But I think she came to assure us of God's presence with us.
Even the rays of light on the premises showed something was happening. May the prayers of our Blessed Mother help our country Nigeria. Amen." He tweeted.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
