Church in Malaysia to house 'Virgin Mary' window


KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - The window pane bearing an image said to resemble the Virgin Mary has been moved from a Malaysian hospital to a church after attracting crowds of devotees, the hospital owner said on Tuesday.

For the past two weeks, hundreds of Catholics have gathered to pray at the Sime Darby Medical Centre just outside the capital Kuala Lumpur, describing the shape spotted on a seventh-floor window there as a miracle.

Pictures of the window have gone viral on Facebook, drawing worshippers from as far away as Singapore.

The throngs outside the hospital have said they could also see an adult Jesus Christ portrayed on a window two panes away from the purported image of the Virgin Mary.
