Jesus is well known for "curing" the blind, in this case the irony is overwhelming when a christian goes blind while searching for the Virgin Mary in the Sun.
Amal Nassif believed 17-year-old Francesca Zackey when she said the Virgin Mary would appear if Nassif gazed into the sun.
Now 37-year-old Nassif, a devout Catholic, may be blind for life.
She went to Zackey - the Benoni girl who claims to have repeatedly seen the mother of Jesus - to receive a blessing.
Now she says at least four other people also damaged their eyes after being told "the lady" would spin the sun and confirm her presence to her believers.
Meanwhile, at her home, Zackey performed several "spiritual healings" and insisted thousands of people around the world had looked into the sun to confirm Mary's presence.
Her mother Bridgette said she looked into the sun each and every day.
The teenager has started a prayer group and is launching a youth group - a demand she says that Mary made on one of her appearances.
Apparently the Virgin Mary failed to tell Zackey that looking at the Sun can cause blindness in any of her visions. I'd like to see criminal charges brought against Zackey.
