Of Course it Might Have Been a Dyslexic Eggplant

god-eggplantChef Jermarcus Brady was slicing eggplants at Gino’s Restaurant in Baton Rouge on Monday when, as he puts it, “I saw a miraculous image formed by the seeds. It spelled out the word ‘God’!” The restaurant’s co-owner, Gino Marino, who has been in business for nearly 50 years, said, “You could cut one million eggplants and you’d probably never see that again, it’s that rare.” Maybe even rarer. Brady and his coworkers took photos to preserve the memory. No word on whether they’ve tried to preserve the slice of eggplant or whether it was salted and sauteed along with the rest.

The Apple of Jesus’ Eye

jesus-appleDavid Duran of Albuquerque, New Mexico, was making a batch of apple butter using his great-great-grandmother’s recipe when he noticed that one of the Fuji apples he was about to peel had an image on the outside he thought looked like Jesus holding a lamb. He took the apple to the local Sacred Heart church, where a priest blessed and anointed it. Since then, neighbors and area residents have been stopping by to get a glimpse of the unique fruit.

“Maybe it’s a sign from the Lord that maybe we need to change our ways and maybe look at things to be more positive in this world,” he told a local TV station.

Well, maybe.

Wooden You Know

mary-new-mexicoVolunteers were cutting lumber while restoring the San Antonio de Padua Church in Questa, New Mexico, on April 28 when someone noticed a knot in the wood that looked like the Virgin Mary with a lamb. Mark Sideris, project coordinator for the restoration, sees a lamb, his daughter sees Christ, some think Mary’s holding the baby Jesus, and still others think it looks like the 14th Station of the Cross where Jesus is laid in the tomb.

After Sideris posted a photo of the knot on Facebook, a steady stream of visitors begain visiting the church to see the knotty lumber, which comes from an old fir tree near the Red River. But it won’t be on display for long. While some parishioners think it should be left for all to easily see, Sideris says it will be used to support a new choir loft. “I love that parents may someday sit beneath it and ask their children if they can see the Virgin Mary in the choir loft,” he said.

Wow, I See Mary In Your Shirt, Dude

tie-dyed-maryTim Symonds of Venice, Florida, likes to make tie dye T-shirts. He knows that with tie dye it’s not all under his control. “I have a basic idea of what the shirt’s going to look like,” he says, “but I tell everyone God does the real art work because where the shirt folds and how the dye runs is up to him and it often makes different images.” Recently he unfolded a finished shirt and noticed an image of the Virgin Mary in the center “by the heart.” He’s not alone, another person says, “I saw it and in a split second I knew exactly what it was.” Symonds says the image is making him think hard about his religious beliefs. And no, he hasn’t decided what to do with the shirt yet.

Warming Up To Jesus

jesus-firewoodLooking to warm-up to Christmas season, Julie Cooney and her husband were using a chainsaw to cut up some firewood at their home in Danville, Indiana. Suddenly they noticed markings in the middle of a log that they thought looked a lot like an angel. Stopping and looking closer, they were astonished to see that it looked more like the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus. “I saw it and I was amazed,” Cooney says, “I took pictures of it quickly. And tried to decide what to do with them. I told them to bring them in the house.” They’ve wisely decided not to burn the logs or cut them any further. Their plan is to display them at the Danville, Indiana, police  department.

As Seen On Google Heaven And Earth

 

jesus-googleIf it’s online it has to be true. Especially if it’s on Google, who’s Street View shows what some think is an image of Jesus and the Virgin Mary hovering above the A5 highway near Walensee, Switzerland. A Google search turns up no reason why they’d choose this location to photobomb the Google imaging vehicle, but you can see it for yourself here. Google has had no comment on the photo and Switzerland, of course, remains neutral.
