With the sun obscured by heavy clouds, a mysterious light on a church wall that many believed was a divinely inspired image of the Virgin Mary did not appear Monday, seeming to confirm the theory that the image came from sunlight shining through a stained-glass window.

That seems to give us a clear picture of what was happening," Bishop Francis Quinn of the Sacramento Diocese said.

Wanted: bookbinders. Free room, board and a small stipend. One- to three-month commitment. No experience necessary. Subject: endangered Tibetan Buddhist teachings. If the job doesn't sound like a smart career move, at least the perks are good. Consider that you may get to visit the recently completed Odiyan Tibetan retreat. Odiyan (pronounced Odie-ON) stands on a coastal cliff north of Petaluma, somewhere between the big blue sky, the vast green ocean and herds of brown and white cows.

Thousands of people from California and other states crowded into this small town 55 miles northeast of Sacramento on Saturday to view an image on a church wall that is either a vision of the Virgin Mary or sunlight reflected through stained glass windows, depending on the point of view of the observer. Beginning on Thanksgiving Day, the image has appeared, for 45 minutes to an hour each morning, above a statue of Christ in tiny St. Dominic's Church.
