Coach loads of Catholics are expected to swarm into Edinburgh over the coming days. They’ll be hoping to catch a glimpse of Jesus in Comely Bank Avenue. An apparition of him and his mother Mary have mysteriously appeared on opposite sides of a tenement window there.
A Miraculous Discovery on the Way to Bingo
Two devout Catholics spotted the apparition on their way to the bingo bus on Raeburn Place.
Lifelong friends Briana Byru and Paula Hewson were saying a decade of the rosary on the way to the bus.
“We were on our sixth Hail Mary. We were asking for a little bit of luck before we got on the bus. It was a big rollover week at the Bingo. I paused to take a pull from my vape and there it was! I couldn’t believe my eyes! Jesus and Mary. As clear as day.” said Byru raising her hands skywards.
“Jesus in Comely Bank Avenue!” A Bingo Night Revelation
“Jesus in Comely Bank Avenue! she shouted,” laughed Hewson “I looked up to see what she was on about. It was a miraculous sight!”
They wanted the world to know about the holy apparition but agreed to wait till after bingo.
“We thought it was a sign we were going to win the bingo you see. We took a photo and agreed to stick it on the gram [Instagram] afterwards,” said Hewson.
From Bingo Disappointment to Viral Sensation
“We didn’t win anything.That Protestant bitch Lizzy Johnston won it again! God surely does work in mysterious ways! So we went to the pub for a few drinks and posted the photo on Briana’s gram account,” said Hewson.
“The response has been unbelievable. She got 100,000 new followers in 24hrs! Lots of devout Catholics have been sending us messages. Loads of them are making travel arrangements so they can get to see it for themselves,” continues Hewson.
Holy Relics and Entrepreneurial Spirit
“We touched the holy apparitions with some wee cloths this morning. I’ve cut them into tiny squares to sell as holy relics.”
“We’ve also been contacted by Holy Art dot com and Catholic Gift Shop dot com. They see huge potential for online and physical partnerships. They’ve also helped us to get some merch together super quick. We’ve got key-rings and t-shirts on the way, along with some classy plastic replicas of the window too,” said Byru.
When asked if they thought Jesus would object to the monetisation of his image both ladies looked to each other and laughed.
“It’s not about the money. Pope Francis recently said ‘Find new ways to spread the word of Jesus to every corner of the world‘. So that’s what were doing. Spreading the good word on the gram,” giggled Hewson
“It’s a reminder to the world that He’s here. Jesus is right here in Edinburgh.”
Charity begins at home they both replied when asked if they would be donating any of their proceeds to charity.
