What Would Jesus See » Uncategorized

From the Flames of Notre, uh, Monsieur

It was bound to happen. Lesley Rowan, a 38-year-old mother from Alexandria in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, was looking at photographs of the fire at Notre-Dame de Paris when she spotted what she thought looked like the image of Jesus Christ standing in the flames as they leaped up from the cathedral’s roof. She did what we would all do and shared it on Facebook. “I shared it and asked for people’s opinions,” she told the Daily Mail, “even my brother in Australia said it looks like Jesus.” Many on social media agreed. Shockingly. Rowan thinks it’s a good omen. “I feel like it will bring comfort to people in Paris and all over the world at this sad time.”

Better Than a Silver Lining

Last Friday, Italian artist and chef Alfredo Lo Brutto was on Piazza Sanseverino in Agropoli, Italy, looking at the water when he looked up and saw a radiant illuminated image in the clouds that looked like Jesus posed in open-armed blessing, much like the famous Christ the Redeemer statue that overlooks Rio de Janeiro. He took a couple of photos and posted them to Facebook. “I don’t often share pictures on social media,” he said, “but when I took this one, I instantly felt like I wanted other people to see, because it was so beautiful.”

Not surprisingly, the photo went viral and has attracted a lot of attention, which of course has Lo Brutto on Cloud 9.

It’s Curtains for Jesus

This is a bit sparse on details, but a photographer in Kent, England, who wants to remain unnamed, claims to have looked at his living room curtains last week and noticed some creases and shadows that formed the image of Jesus Christ. Being a photographer he did exactly what you’d expect.

“It’s a process of my work to see a different perspective on the ordinary,” he said. “The face of Jesus developing in the shadows of my curtain was a welcome sight in the afternoon light, and oddly reassuring.”

Everytime Your Doorbell Rings An Angel Gets Its Wings

Last week, the home surveillance video camera at Glen Thorman’s house in East Jordan, Michigan, started taping when it detected motion outside the house. When Thorman, who is the local fire chief, and his wife looked at the video, they were amazed to see what they say is the image of an angel hovering over his pickup truck. So impressed was Jordan Rivers church that they posted the photo to their Facebook page where they made it official, “Yep folks… It’s an angel.”

Orange You Glad He Saw Mary In a Radish?

While making lunch the other day, Francisco Cecena of Indio, California, sliced a radish in half as he’s done many times before. But this time, he noticed what looked to him to be the image of the Virgin Mary on the inside of the radish. This isn’t the first time he’s seen this image, though it is the first time it was in a vegetable. He says he’s previously seen the Virgin Mary on a rock and on also on his driveway. He claims the miracle of the radish has filled him with renewed faith. As opposed to the other times, we guess.

Leaking News of Mary

People have been flocking to Nobsa, in Boyaca, central Colombia, to check out a patch of algae growing under a leaking pipe that they say looks like the Virgin Mary. It was discovered by a local boy who his mother says , “Crossed the bridge when he heard a sound, as if there were a small animal trapped there. When he turned to look, my son saw the image of the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe. He says that he immediately walked through the stream and began to take pictures of the image. At that moment, the image moved, and he was afraid. He knelt and prayed and then he ran out to tell me. I was in the warehouse and I went to check it with my own eyes because initially I did not believe him. But it turned out to be true.”

Word of the appearance spread quickly and people traveled to see the miracle. Hugo Fuertes told Colombian media, “The people there were shocked, almost paralyzed. The news spread everywhere, and began the procession of people praying the holy rosary to the image of the Virgin.”

The local church, meanwhile, has asked people to wait for the miracle to be certified. Father Victor Leguizamon said, “When there is an apparition, one must act prudently until the competent authority certifies the authenticity.”

He didn’t elaborate on who the competent authority is, what procedure he or she will follow, and how to act prudently other than, of course, contacting the media.
