The Last Virgin In New Jersey

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Let’s face it, West New York, New Jersey doesn’t have a lot going for it. Magnificently overwhelmed by New York City just across the Hudson River, West New York didn’t even bother to choose an original town name.

That’s why its townspeople were thrilled when an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary formed in a tree right in the middle of their commercial district!

Someone told Mayor George Morene about it and he declared the tree “a miracle.” Since then, hundreds of tourists have made a pilgrimage to the site praying, taking pictures, and falling to their knees on the sidewalk. West New York businesses flourished – especially the nearby McDonalds.

Hmmm.  I don’t quite see an image of the BVM in the photos but it does remind me of something.  I just can’t put my finger on it.

Miracle Mockers

Jesus – they don’t make miracles like they used to! In Biblical times, miracles stunned people. The parting of the Red Sea, the fish & loaves multiplication tables, leper-curing on the spot and raising the dead were all crowd pleasers. Boffo, Jesus! Encore!

But what do we get today? Jesus’s face on ANYTHING!

The Jesus Grilled Cheese Sandwich, The Jesus Shower Curtain, The Jesus Tortilla, The Jesus Tree,The Jesus Croissant

Jesus! It’s a miracle anyone goes to church anymore. Each of these Jesus items is a real item – you decide if it’s Jesus. Most have been on e-bay.

How can you tell if something’s a real miracle? Think of the reaction people would have if an ocean, with a gazillion trillion gallons of water, actually parted. Then think of the reaction of most people after viewing the “miracles” above.

There’s a pretty good chance it’s NOT a real miracle if most of the crowd walks away, rolling their eyes and muttering, “Give me a friggin’ break………”
