Pictures of the image have gone viral among local Christians on Facebook and large crowds have gathered at the Sime Darby Medical Centre just outside Kuala Lumpur.

Those assembled Sunday maintained they can now also see an image of an adult Jesus Christ just two windows away from his mother.

Click through the gallery for photos of the scene at Sime Darby Medical Centre, as hundreds of Catholics pray towards the Virgin Mary image.

Nearly 100 Catholics were still at the hospital Sunday, lighting candles, singing hymns and saying prayers. Several tourist buses added to the congestion.

Some have come from as far as Singapore, over 300 kilometres (187 miles) away, to see the image on a seventh-floor window which they describe as a miracle.

"We believe Mary, mother of God, has a message for us, as she is looking down on us and then at a Malaysian flag. We can also see Jesus and he is also moving, they are not static," Eunice Fernandez, who lives nearby, told AFP.

The 54-year-old housewife dismissed claims the image could be a hoax.

Sime Darby, which is primarily a plantations conglomerate, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Father Lawrence Andrew, editor of Malaysian Catholic newsletter The Herald, told AFP the church would need to investigate and verify the authenticity of the images and "the experiences of the witnesses".

"It could be private revelations. We have to make sure they are not imagined but real apparitions," he said.

Catholics make up a sizeable minority in Muslim-dominated Malaysia.

No point insulting if one choose not to believe, He whom is a good and strong prayer will not comment such comments, from what i see pretenders do insult another faith or believe.

Its an image of the mother of god and she is bleeding from the womb.This is not a good sign. Its an omen of bad tidings. Our nation and its people are heading towards the day of reckoning. Be prepared for some major upheavels - conflicts and catastrophies are possibilities. Whatever your religion this is the time to pray for God's intercession.

First of all, lets not make a big thing out of this revelation.  None of us Christians or otherwise, are so lucky or gifted to see God , least of all on a window pane.  
Its best some Christian authorities come forward and authenticate the image rather than giving all types of comments!!

Oh you non-believers!  Shut up!  God will soon be miraculously appearing (as Jesus or Mary) many times in the near future.  Don't you understand Scripture--GOD will not reveal Himself until the very End.  He appears as an Intercession through the Virgin Mary, our Blessed Mother, so we give her the same respect!  God knows ALL, and He knows how hard-headed and stubborn most humans are.  He taught us everything we currently know and will only continue teaching us THROUGH the Bible!!  We must acknowledge His presence everywhere we go!  We may believe that, at times, we are lucky but the truth is that it is God protecting us!  It is only when we do not have confidence in ourselves, thus doubting the Lord, that we make a mistake or 'slip' and fail.  That is why we must ALL pick ourselves up into motivation and TRY again!  It is very tiresome to continue teaching the unfaithful but it must be done!  Beware, let me tell you, God NEEDS ALL OF US to come and follow Him!!

"We believe Mary, mother of God, has a message for us, as she is looking down on us and then at a Malaysian flag"

Mother of God ask us to vote to opposition party by seeing at Malaysian flag, she want us to save Malaysia from corrupted hands.

Not joking, I feel it from my heart. Mother say that!

History has proven millions of cases of people who actually saw visions of mary.....go to st.bearnadette lourdes, fatima, st.faustina of divine mercy...analyse yourself what happen there meticulaously......When Virgin Mary appears she wont come to show off ...when she comes she will come with a plan......the catholic officials will investigate to see if the image is authentic...reserve your comments till then nobody is telling that its really mary's image...wait and see......till then just go to a silent room and pray to the almighty and ask Him to reaveal the truth let the truth guide both of you...

Whatever it is, it's not biblical. Catholics must read the scriptures.They are so gullible that they will believe any image that appears to look like their imaginative savior. Mary is not the intercessor, it was never written that she was to come. Jesus will definitely come one day, not exclusively for SJ residents but for the whole world to witness. That day will be terrifying for those who are deceived.

to josephine candelaria.....maybe you never read and understood the bible clearly......

There are many evangelist who claim can talk to Jesus daily and that they always move around to pray for people...people running after them and attend prayer meeting line up to get prayed and healed.....If they being normal humans can get this kind of previledge/gift from God dont you think Mary being the mother of Jesus deserves far more better position in heaven, dont you think she is even more powerful to pray for us...COME ON SHE IS THE MOTHER OF THE UNIVERSE INCLUDING YOU.....PLS DONT CRITISIZE YOUR HEAVENLY MOTHER ITS LIKE LOOKING UP AND SPITTING AT THE END THE SALIVA WILL FALL ON YOUR FACE...pls go and do analysis about bible, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you...pls dont think that the bible you are holding is the ultimate truth its just the complilation of some of the widely accepted books....Deutrocanonocal is included in RC Bible but the protestants rejects it....Bible itself testifies that there are many text which could not be recorded down completely...so pls rather than giving commment as if you know a lot GO AND READ UP ,DO INVESTIGATION S ABOUT MARY AND HER ROLE SHE TOOK IN HISTORY TO EVANGELIZE NONBELIEVERS.....there are thousands of proof READ ABOUT THE MIRACLES WHICH HAPPEN IN LOURDES, FATIMA...and you will know if that is the work of devil why millions of people are going there to pray and get healed and glorifiying our Lord Jesus...look at the ultimate outcome of the apparitions which took place there....DO YOU THINK DEVIL IN THE FORM OF VIRGIN MARY APPEARED TO ST BERNADETTE, BLESSED LUCIA, DECEIVE THE PILGRIMS TO PRAY TO JESUS...do this makes sense to you....?????THINK BEFORE YOU COMMENT

Religion relegated to the level of relics... The true reality of Yesus (not Jesus, the english concotion of Y of Aramaic) being misconstrued... In Aramaic (the Language spoken by Jesus) he said I'm "ebed Yahweh" (Servant / slave of God) ...later translated into Latin as "pais Theo" means a small boy of God....later translated into vernacular language as "Son of God". Original Language of a religion and semantics plays a crucial role to understand the true teaching of the Great Teacher / Messiah / Messenger / Prophet / Avatar of the religion.
