A Daily Chat with Jesus’ Mom by Cushing Daily Citizen. (English)
Hundreds of faithful came to the Holy Cross Catholic Church in East Derry Wednesday night to witness a renowned visionary have his daily conversation with the Blessed Virgin Mary. Ivan Dragicevic is one of six children from Medjugorje, a small village in Bosnia-Herzegovina, who are said to have seen apparitions of Mary, the mother of Jesus, since June 24, 1981. Mary appeared to Dragicevic at 6:40 p.m. — the time she appears to him each day, he said.

Now don't be alarmed, as this is not the real Shroud of Turin ... but you are close. It's a reproduction of the Veil of Veronica that is held in Italy. Legend has it that a matron named Veronica took pity on Jesus as he was carrying his cross on the way to his crucifixion. Veronica stepped forward from the group of onlookers and wiped the blood and sweat from his face with her veil. Her kindness was repaid, as Jesus worked a miracle and left an imprint of his face on the veil.
