Virgin Mary In Ohio?

An amazing photograph taken in Kirtland, Ohio appears to show a ghostly figure behind a small girl battling leukemia at the time the photo was taken.

However, Erin Potter’s mother, Jen, thinks the figure is not that of a spirit from beyond the grave, but rather a vision of the Virgin Mary and for Jen and her family one of the reasons Erin is now cancer free.

Before we get to the photo, let me make clear I have no desire to step on anyone’s faith the pic is clearly an example of:

“I reminded [Erin] tonight of her picture with Mary, the Blessed Mother.  I told her that They are with her – all those in Heaven who hear our prayers and are watching over her.  I constantly remind myself of that too.  They do hear us.  They are listening.  They are watching over her.  I know it.

The Photo:

Jen Potter says the picture was taken with a digital camera and that no one ws standing around near Erin at the time of the snapshot. She also states that the picture was not taken through a piece of glass.

The picture is first mentioned in Erin’s blog in an entry dated Saturday, June, 2nd, 2012. Jen claims that the photo was taken the night before as Erin played outside:

“Look at the picture.  Last night Erin was playing with Annie and her favorite neighbors outside. This picture was taken with no one around our girl, but you can obviously see that there is a beautiful woman watching over her.  We will tell you that she is the Blessed Mother…Mary.”

While the picture is a wonderful site and may indeed be a picture of something out of the ordinary, I am inclined to think that there is a much more logical explanation.

What do you guys think about this one? Any ideas about how to examine such a photo without access to the original file?

    1.To the Churches I write my testimony.
    My name is Melissa Neff and I am sorry that I am late to give it to You I Pray that God will for give me I am now 25 and I died at 15. So I should have wrote you all 10 years ago.
    I died from why a freshmen in high school at Graham TX from trying to fit in at school.
    My friend Casey talked me in to doing a pill popping competition that she won at and by lunch she started to seizure and to die by lunch time at school and when I heard what had happened to here I began to cry and repent cause I knew what I had done and didn’t want to die. I repented for God knows how long and tried to throw it up but in my shame it would not come up. I didn’t tell any one not even my family after school was over cause of my shame of what I had done and the vise principle told my mom that they thought that I had taken then to like Casey but I lied to them all in my shame. My mom and sister believed my lie so they went to the store and I told the I was sleepy so I didn’t go with them to the store I laid down on my sisters bed by my self crying and repenting to God in hope he would save me from what I had done to my self.

    I fell a sleep and I die right there in my sisters bed.
    I woke up in a circle field of wheat Casey was already there before I got there and around the wheat was big dark trees and out of the trees came the reaper he grabbed Casey before she could even scream right in front of me.
    Then he came at me!! I cried Jesus for fear of what I had done and I felt a hand grab me on my left shoulder and pulled me up before the reaper got me
    and then I found my self on a mountain and looked to my lift to see who had saved me and I saw JESUS he was pointing and I looked down and there was people who talked English just like u or me and the people where on a beach and they where screaming at the top of there lungs we dont need you!! You haven’t been here all this time and they where shooting rockets at the sky and I looked up to see what they where talking to and it was JESUS FATHER his face was in the clouds and from there I was taken to see Gods kingdom was put on Earth and four angles at each corner of Gods kingdom then I woke bake up alive and amazed at what Jesus showed me.
    Then when I woke up told told my mom every thing that had happened and what Jesus showed me and she opened up the Bible with God words in it turned it to Revelation which I had never read before In my life!!!!!!!!!!!

    Revelation chapter 1:7
    Behold, He comes with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, and the ones who pierced Him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of Him. Yes, Amen.
    Revelation 7:1
    And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on every tree.

    The Holy Spirit told me not to keep this from you all so wake up.

    Revelation 7:2
    And I saw another angel coming up the rising sun, having a seal of the living God. And he cried with a great voice to the four angels to whom it was given to them to harm the earth and the sea, saying, Do not harm the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees, until we seal the slaves of our God on there foreheads.

    Revelation 1:8
    I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, says the Lord, the One who is, and the One was, and who is coming- the Almighty.

    Ps I was saved throw Jesus name cause I was not baptized and the reason I write to you is Jesus just woke me up cause I had fallen asleep. He woke me up by putting sours on my face but I didn’t know why then he throw a fish bone in my lung and it pierced my left lung and I began to bleed in side from my left lung down my spine and I didn’t go to the doc cause I didn’t think they could help me then I thought about it and knew what I had done and in my shame I repented again for my sins of all the commandments I had broken and prayed to Jesus to please not let me die like that and repented for a week I think I hurt so bad for my blasphemy and asked him to please help me and take that burden off of me cause I couldn’t handle it and I knew only Jesus could save me and I felt the Holy Spirit when he came in to the room and healed me and when I told the doc about my lung they said I was fine and there was nothing wrong with me and looked at me crazy but what they didn’t know is that Jesus fixed it. Keep the Faith in Jesus. Jesus can do any thing he wants to from saving you to killing you.
    Where the Churches of Revelation and the eating before idols is eat in front of the Tv. I found on Youtube that almost all the movie stars have sold there souls to demons for money beware of them and there music cause God gave them over to what they thought they wanted but leads to death. I am a shamed we have all fallen for tricks and I Pray God will for give us. We have all fallen from Gods grace! Ever on say when God strikes us we will rebuild. But what God wants is us to repent and know where you have fallen. We are the Churches of Revelation we must all Repent our sins we have all fallen!! I am a shamed and wish I could take back all the evil I have seen and heard and have spoke. We are supposed to love as Jesus did and help each other and Guard the 10 commandments and get God back in the school before God kills the children for are stupidity and ungodliness. God is just waiting to here us all repent of are sins for they are many for i live in Babylon the great ow how she will fall!! The cry’s of the unborn baby’s reach God throne and he sees All we are doing at all times. Amen
    Ow after the fish bone the Holy spirit told me to wake Gods people up and he told me to get baptized in a river not a church. So I did and have been under attack ever since I did.
    With out God we have nothing all we have came from him Amen and he can take it all away if we don’t do as God says. I am a sinner just as any one ells on this world and a shamed just as any one ells is. All we can do is try are best that we can do and hope that God will for give us for are sins, even if we cant for give are selfs for them.
