Malaysia church gets window with Virgin Mary image

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — A Malaysian church is taking possession of a hospital window that has attracted hundreds of people who believe it bears an image of the Virgin Mary.
Prayerful crowds of Roman Catholics have gathered outside the Sime Darby Medical Center in a suburb near Kuala Lumpur since last weekend after an image believed to resemble the Virgin Mary was spotted on the hospital's seventh-floor window.
Rev. Simon Labrooy of the suburb's Church of St Thomas More says he met with hospital officials and agreed the crowd situation could affect medical emergency services.
He said in a statement late Monday that the hospital glass panel would be moved to a church and tested by theologians and religious authorities.
Christians comprise nearly 10 percent of Muslim-majority Malaysia's population.
