Latinos, Stop Praying To Every Stain That Looks Like The Virgin Mary

Every few months you hear about the Virgin Mary making an appearance somewhere, usually with a high Latino population. This week, Maria made an appearance at a restaurant called Hamburger Mary’s in Ybor City, FL. The restaurant, known for its popular drag shows and karaoke night, played host to the virgin mother of God on a piece of metal on the wall near the kitchen. Apparently, the image had been there for a while but only recently did someone realize (hallucinate?) that the markings looked like the Virgin Mary. People, (mostly Latinos), have come from all over the Tampa Bay area to pray to what is most probably a grease stain on the wall. Or is it?

It would be easy to mock these people’s faith. At the end of the day, we live in a mysterious world. Who is to say what is and is not divine? Our point is that we Latinos should not be satisfied in manifestations on drag club walls or burnt tortillas. We need to send a clear message to Mary that we expect better. 500 years ago she did that neat thing in Guadalupe with Juan Diego’s mantilla and only 100 years ago she made the sun spin in the sky in Fatima. It’s not that she’s gotten lazy, it’s that we’ve been satisfied with less. It’s our fault, and we need to get some self-respect and ask for more. Mary, you need to bring your A-game and we promise we’ll come and pray. Latinos, you need to wait for a genuine miracle and not go pray to every stain that looks vaguely like a 1st century Jewish girl.
