Reading this article on the NY Times this morning and considering all that has been vituperatively typed in the last week about Knock apparitions, I bring you: the Blessed Virgin Mary vs. the Large Hadron Collider.

When he saw and spoke to Our Lady in Knock on October 11th, she told him she is very angry with the Church. “They have insulted the Blessed Virgin Mary . . . She wants respect from the church.”
