Statue of Mary Glows in Youngstown

Can you say strange???

From The Vindicator:

"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.

With many carrying still and video cameras and peering through binoculars, the crowd swelled to several hundred people of all ages as daylight waned Thursday, and the obvious glow of the statue's eyes and heart intensified.

Even with some notable light sources, the reason for the glow was unclear.

Light shined on the church and the crowd from inside the attached school building, where bingo was being played, and from security and streetlights outside. "
