Come On, Baby Don’t You Wanna Go

The Virgin Mary does.

A Kennedy Expressway underpass has a salt runoff stain which looks like the Virgin Mary. Do you see it? Hundreds of people are coming to the site to pray and leave flowers. “We believe it’s a miracle,” said Elbia Tello, 42, of Chicago. “We have faith, and we can see her face.” Miracles sure have gotten different from Jesus’ day.

The funny part of this is the highway department’s response to the site. “We’re treating this just like we treat any type of roadside memorial,” said IDOT spokesman Mike Claffey. “We have no plans to clean this site.”

Now there’s a shocker! The city of Chicago isn’t going to clean something? I mean, if they did, it would be the only highway underpass with a clean spot.

Anyway, it does seem as if faith and miracles are paying off less and less these days. Faith used to move mountains, now it sees faces in salt stains on Chicago expressways. What is your faith doing?
