Video of Virgin Mary ‘Appearing’ in Benin City Stirs Mixed Reactions
A new video has surfaced which shows worshippers in Benin, Edo State, singing praises and hailing the sky as the sun blinks. They think it is the apparition of the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, appearing to them, and this has stirred major reactions on social media.
This is not the first time people will be flocking to see the Virgin Mary. Only recently, hundreds rushed to the Knock shrine in Ireland to see the mother of Jesus after a 14-year-old old told them that a vision of the Virgin Mary would appear. The boy had visited the shrine in Fátima, Portugal last May, when he claimed he saw visions of the Virgin Mary, she she told him she would appear again in Knock, Ireland.
On the said day, a bright sun shined down on curious worshippers and locals. While some believed the bright sun to be proof of the appearance, others were skeptical.
See the photo taken in Ireland:
It’s worthy to note that the ‘Miracle of the Sun’ in Portugal happened on October 13 1917 in which the sun reportedly ‘danced’ for ten minutes. This led to a canonical investigation that took years before the Catholic Church declared the incidence worthy of belief on 13 October 1930.
And now, a similar incident has occurred in Benin City, on October 13, and just like it was reported in Portugal, the sun ‘blinked’ steadily, or we could say it, ‘danced’.
Watch the video:
Is this really a canonical revelation?
This science tried to explain away the mystery of the blinking sun, saying it is charged hot spots around the sun emitting blinkers due to intense heat. Read the full report here.
Whatever the case may be, we can’t wait to see how the Catholic Church reacts to this incident.
Meanwhile, here what a few Nigerians think of the Benin ‘miracle’:
