For those few in Brisbane.

"Several statues of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary in an Australian hall have apparently begun weeping and bleeding rose oil, prompting the Catholic Church to launch an investigation, a church official said on Tuesday.

Hundreds of people have flocked to a Vietnamese community hall near St Mary's Church in the Brisbane suburb of Inala after news spread that several statues, crucifixes, tablecloths and a set of prayer beads were oozing rose-scented oil."

the rest is here.

someone go and tell us all what it's like!

There was an abandoned warehouse in Fortitude Valley (near the city), in one of the dirt encrusted windows people used to say they could see the image of Jesus. Apparantly you had to be there at the right time of day with the right kind of light, evidently I was never there at the right time because I never saw it.

Heh. Last year or the year before there was an apparition on the wall of a church in the Vales, South Australia.

Hand of God, or Slide Projector? You decide...

maybe jesus was too busy appearing in other places when you were there? it'd be just like him, as he's very unreliable.

Yeah that'd be bloody right. He was probably with the Virgin Mary when she was appearring as a fence pailing at Manly Sydney...
