The most famous Marian apparitions in Egypt are those witnessed first by two Muslim men and then by many thousands of people of different religions, and widely reported in the Western press, beginning in 1968 at Zeitoun and occurring off and on until 1971.
Lots of links on Zeitoun, inluding video, photographs, and articles. E.g. click here
I'm not sure what to make of these latest apparitions; it could be a cheeky wee scamp with a top of the range holograph machine, maybe its St Elmo's Fire, it could be those hadron guys have [email protected] something or maybe we are in the end of times. Either way, I thought that it was a fairly interesting story.
I've never seen St Elmo's fire although the conditions for it (the church is on an island) seem right. I just wanted to have some thoughts on what it was, not looking to open the polarised 'is their a God' debate.
