Nossa Senhora passeando em meio a uma enchente? Nas Ilhas Canárias, a devoção à Nossa Senhora da Candelária (Virgem Morena) é muito tradicional e toda a cidade se enfeita para celebrar a festa em honra à Maria Santíssima. Mas em decorrência das fortes chuvas, uma das imagens acabou se despregando e “passeou” pela chuva. Cada 2 de fevereiro e 15 de agosto milhares de peregrinos de todas as partes das Ilhas Canárias e em outras partes da Espanha, em peregrinação ao santuário para celebrar a festa em honra da padroeira das Ilhas Canárias. Em fevereiro destaca a Procissão das Velas e agosto a Encenação da Aparição da Virgem. Na nossa vida também, em meios às tempestades e enchentes, nossa Mãe sempre está presente. Tem alguém que mora nas Canárias? Rs • (Não sabemos se é montagem, mas é bonitinho 😍😍)

Here’s a translation to the Instagram post‘s the above text:

“Our Lady strolling through a flood? In the Canary Islands, devotion to Our Lady of Candelaria is very traditional and the whole city is decorated to celebrate the feast in honor of Mary Most Holy.

“But as a result of the heavy rains, one of the images was unveiled and “wandered” by the rain.

“Every February 2 and August 15 thousands of pilgrims from all parts of the Canary Islands and other parts of Spain go on pilgrimage to the shrine to celebrate the feast in honor of the patron saint of the Canary Islands.

“In February highlights the Procession of the Candles and August the Staging of the Apparition of the Virgin.

“In our lives too, in the midst of storms and floods, our Mother is always present.

“Is there anyone living in the Canaries? LOL

“(We do not know if it’s montage, but it’s cute 😍😍)”

The original video

We actually found an identical video featuring the same instance, except it isn’t the Blessed Virgin Mary floating down the street!

In response to this tweet with the video of the Virgin Mary floating down the street, this person said, “FAKE,” and posted the video below.

Watch:

If you compare the two videos, you can see that the one above is the original, and the one with the Virgin Mary is doctored.

But the post on Instagram is right–the video is still cute!

What do you make of this?
