Notre Dame, Ind.- Some are calling it the miracle of Notre Dame. others, including the Holy See-which is justly skeptical of such things-are more reserved.
Michele Obama has reportedly made three appearances before a peasant girl at the Grotto at Notre Dame University. The first one was to announce a shortbread cookie recipe. One that was so good that the girl returned the next day with some friends to light a candle in thanks. Just as they were about to do so, Michelle appeared again.
Michelle instructed the girls to seek a life of volunteerism and servitude. "Don't go into corporate America. Become teachers. Work for the community. Be social workers. Be a nurse." she told them as her radiance shown round about them.
The young ladies returned every day at the same time for a whole month, praying for hours each time, before the first lady made her third and final appearance. This time she was much more mysterious.
"For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country not just because Barrack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change," The weeping Black Madonna said. "I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment."
She was later described as wearing a crisp white shirt, worn with the collar up and neck open, a slight train and long ties laced at the back, cropped black pants and sporting tennis shoes designed by the French designer Lanvin. Adding a punch of color with an azure blue clutch, her divine appearance drove the girls to near hysterics.
Since that time thousands have flocked to the Grotto at Notre Dame to pray to Michelle Obama, and seek relief from their cares with her intervention. Some have reported miraculous cures from financial woes and family problems. Cut up credit cards and paid up mortgages are strewn every where and the crowds grow bigger every day.
