Following the sharing of a picture of the “Virgin Mary” who supposedly appeared to parishioners at St. Charles Lwanga in Calabar, a Catholic priest named Fr. Evaristus Bassey has stirred up controversy online.
In tweeting images of the “Virgin Mary,” the priest said that many individuals, including non-Catholics, “saw her image.”
He insisted that the strange occurrence on Wednesday, June 22, was a sign of God being with them.
The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in one of our Calabar parishes, St. Charles Lwanga, on Wednesday, June 22, 2022. More than 100 individuals, including a Protestant pastor who visited his cousin the assistant priest, were present when it happened.
He captured these images. She was surrounded by too many dazzling rays to see clearly. She moved up to the shrine that was created in her honor before being picked up. The atmosphere in the parish that evening was astounding. She kept her mouth shut around everyone. However, I believe she came to confirm God’s presence among us.
There was activity evident even from the light beams on the property. May Nigeria benefit from the prayers of our Blessed Mother. Amen.” Tweeted him.

The Virgin Mary cannot appear in the Vatican City; rather, she can only be seen in Africa by the appearance of a cloud, according to a tweet from @mcgeorge007.
“Virgin Mary in Calabar, someone done this to religion,” tweeted diceydemon.
