I am a BIG fan of seeing Jesus in a pizza or seeing the Virgin Mary in a water stained cocktail napkin and then having people make a pilgrimage to see it. In this age of the internet and webcams you really don't get the pilgrimages you used to. It is more of an instant gratification thing and less commitment to the cause. Why, back in the day the entire family could hop in the car and make a road trip of an entire collection of things which look like Jesus or the Virgin Mary or Elvis. In fact, some say Elvis was alive and that Jim Morrison was the tour director at some of these places.

Anyway, a woman from Croatia who visits Alabama actually has people getting in their cars and on buses to go see her because she says she can see and talk to the Virgin Mary. How cool is that? One woman from Washington D.C. was so impressed by this ability she had never seen that she quit her job and sold her house and all her belongings just so she can be a disciple to the woman. Uh huh.
Thousands of people show up each week when the Croatian woman comes to visit. She has come 11 times and the compound where she spends her time rakes in millions of dollars each time she pops by to share her visions.
