Meet Mary Beth Webb.
She lives outside Pittsburgh, PA and just so happens to be the cousin of the Virgin Mary.
Well, 65th cousin to be exact.
How does she know? Ancestory.com obviously. She spent a lot of time on the site, a whole lot of time apparently, and discover that she “is the 64th great-granddaughter of Saint Joseph Ben Matthat Arimathaea, who was the paternal uncle to the Virgin Mary.”
While I’ve never heard it claimed that Joseph of Arimathaea was related to the Virgin Mary, I also didn’t know she had living descendants, so you learn something new every day?
Anyway, Mary inherited some special powers from her famous cousin.
She can talk to the dead.
So, let this be a lesson to you kids. Spend enough time on Ancestory.com and you’ll be granted special magic powers too!!
