Our air conditioner, who art in the basement,
Hallowed be thy coolness.
Thy cold air come.
Thy will be done,
On ground level as in the bungalow.

Well, something like that anyway. That prayer is for Antonia Rutz Hernandez. According to a report on KRGV-TV’s Website, the Rio Grand Valley, Texas, resident’s air conditioning unit is the place the Virgin Mary decided to appear.

Per the crazy lady, the image has been on the side of the unit for a couple of years now. According to the report, the crazy lady did not know why the image appeared, stating, “I don’t know … probably a miracle in there. God can do everything if you pray a lot.”

So was she praying for God to spruce up her air conditioning unit?

I hate to be the bad guy here, but with all the problems in the world today, why would the Big Guy be spending his time on an a/c unit? Now if he was turning 10 SEER into 18 SEER, well, then there is a story worthy of coverage.

But if this praying stuff really works, then I am game. Please excuse me while I get on my knees and pray that I will never have to hear about Jon and Kate Plus Eight ever again.

To view a picture of the image, which in my humble opinion looks like a cross between the Virgin Mary and Obi-Wan Kenobi, visit
