Image becomes clearer, say witnesses

SUBANG JAYA: The image of what some are claiming to be that of the Blessed Virgin Mary on one of Sime Darby Medical Centre's windows here has continued to draw people from all over Malaysia.

Many eyewitnesses, some of whom had been visiting the centre for several days, said the image had “grown clearer” since Saturday.

Malacca-Johor Diocesan Pastoral Institute director Rev Deacon Dr Sherman Kuek said if the immediate result actually excited deeper faith among the Catholics, it was a good thing.

“But even so, this by no means confirms the authenticity of the image as an apparition of Mary,” said Rev Kuek, who holds a doctorate in theology.

He advised Catholics to always keep their attention on Jesus Christ.

Traffic along the medical centre was heavy yesterday, with many parking their cars along the side of the road to see the image.

Some were seen taking photographs with their various electronic gadgets while others prayed and sang hymns.

“The image was brighter and clearer than yesterday. It is certainly different,” said student Kyle Lim, 21.

Some eyewitnesses reported seeing another image forming on one of the windows below, which they claimed resembled the face of Jesus.

Special containers for people to place candles were also set up there.

Photographs of the image, believed to have appeared several days ago, have gone viral on Facebook.
