PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence says it's "highly unlikely" that an image some believe is of the Virgin Mary is the result of divine intervention.

Crowds formed last week in North Providence, where a stain on a cross outside the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church looked to some people like the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus.

On Monday, the diocese issued a written statement saying the Catholic Church is cautious in evaluating alleged miracles and that it was highly unlikely this was one.

It also says that if the image inspires people to a renewed faith in God, then the diocese welcomes it, even if it's not a miracle.
