According accounts from a hospital in Bogotá, Colombia, witnesses believe the Virgin Mary allegedly appeared to COVID-19 patients.
The Colombian television program Primer Impacto of Univisión network reported the alleged apparitions.
The photos show Our Lady in the hospital’s chapel and corridor. Employees of the Reina Sofía Clinic in Bogotá say that Our Lady visits the sick.
A doctor said he took the images at the end of his night shift. He noticed a figure in unusual places, including at a corridor and in the chapel.
Witness William Pinzón said he is certain that it is the Virgin Mary. He explains that the second image seen in the hallway is much clearer.
“She largely manifests herself and does not manifest herself on the floor, she manifests herself levitating–she never touches the floor,” he explains.
“You cry a lot because she cries,” says María Francia, Casita de la Virgen director.
“She is visiting the sick in the world of COVID, because it hurts her. She is a loving mother,” she emphasizes.
Meanwhile, Primer Impacto spoke with photographer Fernando Vergara, who explained, “It is evident that in the clinic’s chapel is surrounded by glass, which becomes a reflective surface. If there were no Virgin Mary in the chapel, we would be clearly talking about an apparition.”
Whether it is an apparition or an optical effect, this reminds us that Our Lady is always close in our pain, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
