Our Lady of the Fjords




On June 24, 1905, this iceberg appeared in St. John's harbour, Newfoundland.

That, of course, was St. Jean Baptiste Day. St. Jean Baptiste is patron saint of French Canada. He is also patron saint of St. John's, which is named for him. And the reason it is named for him, in turn, is that Newfoundland was discovered by John Cabot on June 24.

Strange set of coincidences, no?

This Canadian photograph is the first photograph ever taken of an apparition of the Blessed Virgin.

Thanks and a tip of the Hatlo hat to ChurchPop.
