UNEXPLAINED LIGHT AT DIVINE MERCY CHAPEL ON GOOD FRIDAY
UNEXPLAINED LIGHT AT DIVINE MERCY CHAPEL ON GOOD FRIDAY By Melvyn Brown, AFJ
Amazing . That was the only word used by a devotee who failed to say anything more. The burst of light on the altar of the Divine Mercy at 3 Elliott Road, Calcutta, happened at 5:15 p.m. on Good Friday.
Keeping to the annual practice the statues had been covered since Maunday Thursday ; and the door of the chapel was kept open from 8 p.m. to 12 midnight for pilgrims who go visiting seven to nine places of worship in the city.
On the following day, Good Friday, from 6 a.m. to 12 noon the chapel door was kept open till noon. Some 300 devotees had visited the chapel. The count was kept by the distribution of free medals and prayer cards. The Good Friday service at St.Mary’s church started at 3 p.m. After the service I returned home , closed the door and window and went into the inner room to rest.
Around 5:15 p.m. the burst of light on the altar made me rush out. I snatched the camera which I had used in the morning to take pictures of the devotees. After the photo was taken the light was gone in a few seconds. It cannot be explained.
