'Virgin Mary' appears in hospital window

Catholics are flocking to a Malaysian hospital where a vision of the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared in a window.

More than 100 worshippers, some from hundreds of miles away, have converged on the Sime Darby Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

The group are convinced that the "miraculous" mark on the seventh floor window represents the Virgin Mary, reports the Daily Mail.

And they claim that a second mark, on a nearby window, is the image of Jesus.

Eunice Fernandez, who lives nearby, said: "We believe Mary, mother of God, has a message for us, as she is looking down on us and then at a Malaysian flag.

"We can also see Jesus and he is also moving, they are not static."

Visitors have been lighting candles praying and singing hymns close to the image which has gone viral on Facebook.

Father Lawrence Andrew, editor of Malaysian Catholic newsletter The Herald, said the church would need to investigate and verify the authenticity of the images.

"It could be private revelations. We have to make sure they are not imagined but real apparitions," he said.
