Visionary: Thousands of Americans trekked to Alabama to see Marija Pavlovic Lunetti, a Croatian woman who claims to see the Virgin Mary every day

A visit from a Croatian woman who claims to see the Virgin Mary on a daily basis drew thousands of people to a small Alabama town this week.

Many people travelled for days to be near the self-proclaimed visionary while one Washington woman even sold her home to take the trip.

Despite skepticism of prominent Catholics, the faithful said they trekked to Sterrett with hopes of hearing a message from the mother of Jesus, witnessing miracles and receiving direction about how to follow their faith.

The woman at the center of the gathering, Marija Pavlovic Lunetti, said she saw the apparition or appearance of Mary in 1981 at age 16 with a group of five other youth in Medjugorje, then part of Yugoslavia.

1. Does she need an H1B to work in the US?

'She blesses you all,' Lunetti announced in English. -- That's it!?

Cha-ching!

7. No it would be an R Visa

for temporary religious nutcase admission.

Nothing works as well as religion to separate the crazy and the desperate from their money. You don't even need a roulette wheel or dice to do it.

The R Visa actually does exist for temp religious workers.

Now, what was it that P.T. Barnum said?

You've never seen "teh" used as an intentional misspell? You've been missing out.

5. Sounds a little like "Our Lady of the Forest" by David Guterson

Turned out the visionary was high on shrooms and prescription meds.

10. Gullible and willing to believe anything with "God" attached.

12. The "pilgrims" are dumber than bowling shoes.

 

The "seer" is most likely a fraud or mentally ill.

16. Eh, to each their own

 

People journey for all kinds of dumb crap. To see ghosts and UFOs. To see a celebrity. To feel a vortex. To embrace "mother earth." To dance around a fire and be a "witch." Etc...

Whatever floats their boat.

19. This makes me think of the "Married with Children" episode

Al and family go to Florida and the main attraction in town is "The Man Who Met Andy Griffith."

20. Well, maybe she can. Far be it from to dismiss anyone's spiritual experiences.
