The pope needs to saint that painting as soon as possible, or at least before mitt puts it on ppv

I don't see any lips moving. I see a crappy low pixel quality recording device not set somewhere stable (i.e held in hand) creating a blur that coupled with said low pixel quality, is creating just enough digital artifacts to fool people with. If you play this video in a loop (yourepeat.com works for this) to study the painting, it becomes clear that there's nothing but bad image quality going on.

After closer inspection I see this as a hoax. The question is: What's the point for hoaxing such a thing? I hope it's not just to get some Youtube views.

I would really like out ATS' expert analists to check this out and weigh in. 

Is the 'a' word a typo, or are you saying something about debunkers here?

Ok, off to watch the video.


Oh, gosh....I'll have to get around to fixing that.
Thanks.

The whole thing moves and blurs. Watch the other parts of it.

Plenty of reason for someone to hoax it. Creating pilgrimages to the church? Buoy faith among followers?
How would they have done it? Is the painting rigged...or the camera?

I've watched the video (even in full screen), and it looks like movement and blurring causes the mouth to appear to move. Easy solution for those on the fence: HD camera directly on the painting at the next mass.

Though even my suggestion would never be definitive proof of any anomaly or miracle (you'd have to see it in person to be truly convinced), it's the best I can come up with right now.

Personally, I'm pretty sure there is nothing miraculous going on with this painting.

The miracle is that some people believe it is a miracle.

I watched the video.
It is low quality, but it does appear that her lips are moving. I looked at other parts of the image, like her fingers, and did not see the same pronounced movement.
Now the question would be, is it real... or digitally altered.

It looks like an effect of pixelation creates an optical illusion that makes it look as if the lips are moving. Mind you, its not only the lips that appear to move, it also looks like Jesus' fingers are caressing his mom's bosom.

lol that pic kinda reminds me of the game of thrones breastfeeding scene with Lysa Tully hahha

That's a screen and some poor animation.

Sorry.

It's hard to say anything from this footage just like with UFO footage. I guess it depends on whether or not you believe that other eyewitness accounts added to the video footage. As for why he recorded it ... you are having to ask that in today's society where everyone has a smartphone and everyone records everything?

I have less problem chewing over the idea that if she actually was praying along, someone popped out their phone and recorded it that the idea that this video is proof that it actually happened.

Religions have been hoaxing people for about 6,000 years.

I watched it the first time and saw nothing but a shaky camera causing a blur.

I blew it up to full screen and saw the same thing.

At no point did I see lips moving...


It's whatever floats your boat isn't it? I see nothing either..other than a crappy piece of likely mobile phone video where all the lips are moving, I reckon if you look hard enough the architecture moves as well, why do people do this for flip sake?

I really really hate to be that guy as I have an open mind about things however....it looks fake...at one point is just seems sloppy when it first starts and the reaction id have if it moved would be "hey everyone look!"....

if you also watch the nose it looks like the nose is moving because of the focus on it...i cant tell if its failed cgi or or just going in and out of focus

I wouldn't even be convinced by "eyewitness" accounts of the event; usually, those are even less reliable than the crappy camera footage.

Well, the screaming kid in the church must have seen it...he was going nuts.

a reply to: IAMTAT It seems that due to blurr, the mouths of the other figures in the painting are moving. But, that may be strange in itself, nothing else is doing the same thing. I am not Catholic or Christian.

But I will admit, some strange religious things occurring whether I believe the entire religion or not. My mother is a non -practicing Catholic, yet she went to Catholic school (I did one year of high school, could not take anymore). She is particularly devoted to the virgin Mary and ST. Anthony. Whenever I can;t find something important,,,like a $50 bill I lost in my house, she has me say a St. Anthony prayer with her. And I always find it soon after. Has nothing to do with 'just focusing' as I had used other methods like meditation or slowing down and thinking "where did you last have it? Why would you move it? HOw and where could it have dropped from a purse?" that sort of thing. This parayer has NEVER FAILED, Not one time.

More than that, there is this holy medal issue I have. Started in high school. Would find holy medals on tables or shelves in my bedroom, some more than 100 years old, from multiple shrines in multiple countries. Random places, random times. One may say "maybe your mother put them there". I highly doubt it, she was in undergrad Poly Sci at the time, was barely home, let alone finding and planting holy medals. It continued. In my first apartment during college, another 9 or 10. My mother visited that rat trap maybe twice. It continued. Apartment when I was married. It continues... house I own now. My mother has been practically bedridden the last 6 years and I go to her house, she doesn't come here. I will go to set my alarm on my phone on the night stand...and another one will be sitting there.

I have gotten used to it.

Little white Jesus' lips were doing exactly the same thing...

Because it's pixelation distortion.



Playing along, what would make this a miracle...

Moses parted the Sea...
Jesus walked on Water...


Nowadays paintings move.

We are truly blessed to witness such a miracle.

Look more closely --everything is moving in the painting --both sets of lips, facial expressions --even the 2 fingers!

It's either someone behind the painting, the painting is a tapestry and not fastened down correctly and is rippling in the wind or it's the poor quality of the movie clip --I've actually had this poor quality incident happen with videos I took back in the day when using a low-quality video camera phone, or digital camera with video. As the camera tries to focus it gives a rippling affect to where it looks like a part or parts of the video is moving.

I'd like to believe in this, but I just don't think this is real.
