CAMPBELL — Crowds outside St. Joseph the Provider Church, 633 Porter Ave., have been growing larger every night since a group of women first noticed that the eyes and heart of a statue of the Virgin Mary appear to glow.

While he parishoners are praying
to the statue to be cured the
Monsignor is saying "Oh, it's
just because of the gold leaf that
used to be up there." This is what
I like about the Catholic Clergy.
They are not given to hysterical
assumptions when it comes to
miracles and such.

How do you feel about officially recognized miracles?

The same way. I like the fact they
scrutinize every claim from every
possible angle doing their best to
explain it away as not being a
miracle. They're very level headed
about this.

This is in contrast to so many
other religions and other branches
of Christianity where the slightest unusual happening is
accepted as God stepping in and
cirumventing one of his own normal
modus operandi.
