Reflection of God's Light

While traveling through the town of Madison on October 9, 2010, I decided to visit St. Vincent Martyr Catholic Church. My normal routine when I stop at any church is to go inside and say some prayers. I also usually have my camera on hand and take some photographs as well. If you're ever in Morris County, by all means do visit this beautiful church. You will not be disappointed. St. Vincent is located on 26 Green Village Road in Madison, New Jersey.

 

I photographed the statue of Mary holding the infant Jesus which sits behind the alter and is surrounded by a flora arrangement and church lighting. If you look at the picture very closely there is three distinct shadows appearing on the wall. Two shadows on the right are of Mary and infant Jesus.

 

However, is the reflection of light creating a third image? The shadow on the left appears different. Is the silhouette on the wall a likeness of the statue or perhaps an image of St. Joseph?

 

What's your opinion? Is the image being caused by a reflection of God's light?

 

I also photographed a close-up of the statue which is posted on my blog at the following link: lenarpoetry.blogspot.com/2011/02/reflection-of-gods-light...

 

Our Lord indeed works in mysterious ways to grab the attention of people through subtle signs!
