Watered Down Mary

Father Ernest Bulinda, the Rector at the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Norfolk, Virginia, was walking past the baptismal font when something caught his eye. It was a water stain, but not just any water stain. This one looked like a silhouette of the Virgin Mary. He called a parishioner who was nearby and asked what he thought. He agreed that it looked like Mary. Father Bulinda tried to keep it quiet but word spread and people have been stopping by to take a look. He has no plans to clean it up. “She’s been appearing everywhere, she’s on toast and so on and so forth so I thought we’ll just keep quiet and let it be.”

Bringing Home The Bacon

Toby Elles of Salford, England, wanted a late night snack after drinking beer with his roommates, so he put a few slices of bacon in a pan. He decided to rest on the couch while it cooked and fell asleep, waking up about an hour later with smoke filling the room. When he lifted the burned bacon he discovered the image of Jesus Christ staring at him from the bottom of the pan, this in spite of the pork product not being kosher. “I’m not going to scrub it clean though,” he says, “just in case I get struck by lightning. It’s going to take pride of place on a wall instead.”
