1999 - Reported in the BBCnews.com. Was the Virgin Mary watching
over Cardinal Basil Hume's coffin during his funeral? Not watching
from heaven, that is, but from within Westminster Cathedral itself?
The latest sighting was captured when two photographers for a Catholic
newspaper took pictures of television coverage of Cardinal Hume's
funeral. One, Terence Wynn, says: "What I see is an image on
the left hand side of the coffin which looks to me as if it's female
and with its hands joined in prayer." He
admits it is not a clear image, but suggests if you traced a picture
of a statue at Lourdes, it would be "almost identical"
to his photograph.
