What Would Jesus See » Archive for 2010

Molten Mary

On December 4th, Mari Valenzuela of Alhambra, California, pulled out her rosary, lit a candle, and began praying, just as she does most nights. But this night was different. When she finished, she noticed the candle had melted to form an image that looked like a 6-inch-tall kneeling and praying Virgin Mary. She showed it to some friends and family, who also thought it looked like Mary, so she took it to her priest, who said the image proves “all that praying is a message of faith and that she’s on the right track in her life.” She hasn’t decided what she’s going to do with it, though she says she wants to share it with as many people as possible. In the meantime it stays in her refrigerator to make sure it doesn’t melt.

Lord And Masa

Rosalinda Villanueva of Laredo, Texas, was serving her husband a flour tortilla last Thursday when she noticed what looked like the image of Jesus Christ burned into it. They took a picture on their cell phone, then called the TV station to report it. There’s no word on their plans for the blessed tortilla though it’s a safe bet it won’t be used for fajitas.

Sweet Jesus!

James Burrows of West Toledo, Ohio, was buying a container of hard holiday candy at a market where he works part-time when he looked down and saw a piece with the image of what he thought looked like the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus, much like the well known postage stamp. “I’d say somewhere between 80- to 85-percent” of those who look at it see the image in the candy, he says. “I’ve showed it to several people even without the postage stamps to compare it to and they couldn’t believe the similarity. It’s uncanny.” The other 15-to 20-percent thought it was Jane Eyre and Rochester or John and Yoko.

Jesus Chickens Out

When Mitchell Grainger of Rowley Regis, West Midlands, England, looked at a photo he’d shot of his pet chicken Glora taking a dust bath, he spotted an image in the feathers. “I literally said ‘Jesus Christ’ when I saw the picture,” he told the Halesowen News. “It is strange that it would appear on Gloria because not long ago she was the only chicken out of 20 that wasn’t killed by a fox. She was standing on the step when he came and miraculously wasn’t touched.” Praise the lord and pass the gravy.

Run Him Up The Flagpole And See Who Prays

The Liquid Planet Water Park in Candia, New Hampshire, has been struggling since opening two years ago, thanks to way too many rainy days. That’s why the Dumont family that owns it took it as a good sign when, soon after opening the park for the season, staff members saw what they thought looked like the image of Jesus Christin the middle of the red cross on a lifeguard flag. Since then the weather has been perfect and business is up more than 200% from last year, in spite of the fact that park manager Kelly Dumont thinks it looks “more like a gladiator, or the Beatles.”

Like Heaven on Google Earth

Twenty-six year-old Zach Evans of Southampton, England, was using Google Earth to check out vacation spots when he saw an interesting image on some fields in Hungary—the image of Jesus Christ. No word on whether he decided to vacation there or not.
