'Virgin Mary' on hospital window draws hundreds of M'sian Catholics


KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Hundreds of Catholics have gathered in prayer and worship outside a Malaysian hospital after seeing an image on one of the windows said to resemble the Virgin Mary.

Pictures of the image have gone viral among local Christians on Facebook, and large crowds have gathered at the Sime Darby Medical Centre just outside Kuala Lumpur.

Those assembled maintained they could now also see an image of an adult Jesus Christ just two windows away from his mother.

Nearly 100 Catholics were still at the hospital on Sunday, lighting candles, singing hymns and saying prayers. Several tourist buses added to the congestion.
