The Man Of Steel. Uh, Iron?

Mary Jo Coady of Methuen, Massachusetts, was putting away the laundry when she glanced down at an iron and noticed an image of Jesus on the bottom. “I picked it up and asked my daughters to take a look at it to make sure I wasn’t crazy,” she said. “They were as amazed as I was.” So she did what any sane person would do. No, she didn’t put it up for sale on eBay, she posted photographs of the iron on her Facebook page. The answer from her friends and relatives was unanimous—it indeed looked like Jesus. So then she did what any sane person would do. No, it’s still not up for sale on eBay. Yet. She went to the newspaper with the pressing story. Now that’s a new wrinkle.

Better Than A Plastic Jesus

You might remember Joe Isuzu from TV commercials years ago. Well now there’s Jesus Isuzu. Two weeks ago Jim Stevens of Jonesborough, Tennessee, spotted an image of Jesus’ face on the driver side window of his Isuzu pickup truck. Since then, whenever there’s morning dew the visage reappears, only to vanish later in the day when the dew evaporates. He’s tried rolling the window up and down but that hasn’t stopped it. “Of course, I’m not going to wash it,” he says. Of course.

The 40 Million Year Old Virgin

When David Nunez’ father found a 14-pound boulder while looking for landscaping rocks in an orchard, “Everybody thought it looked like a turtle shell, but once he brought it home, we saw a figure on it.” Looking closer they saw a bluish-black stain that looks like the Virgin of Guadalupe. Father Harvey Fonseca, of Saint Jude Thaddeus Roman Catholic Church, is skeptical, saying “It’s usually just a coincidence when something looks like something else.” Rob Rogers, a professor of geology at Cal State Stanislaus in Turlock who says the rock is between 40 and 140 million years old, said he couldn’t see the image in the photos he’d been emailed. “I must lack imagination,” he said.

Truckin’ Along With Mary

A woman named Sharon emailed ABC-7 in El Paso, Texas, to let them know she and her family saw an image of the Virgin Mary at a Petro truck stop. The TV station sent a crew out that found the water stain and took a photograph of it. Good thing too, since the truck stop’s maintenance crew washed the stain off within days.

Ukraine Your Neck, You See Jesus

Early this summer some discolorations appeared on the outer wall of a timber factory in Velyky Berezny, a town in western Ukraine. Probably caused by mold or dampness, people immediately saw in them the image of Jesus’ head and body. The factory has become a tourist attraction, with visitors leaving flowers, taking photographs, and even kissing the image. So far there’s an increased police presence but no plans to build a gift shop.

Samoa Sightings

Last week Samoans across the country prayed to ensure that the country’s September 7 switch to driving on the left side of the road would be a safe one. Seemingly in response, an image appeared on the wall of the Congregational Christian Church in the capital city of Apia that many say is Mary with a rosary in her hands. Others claim it looks more like Jesus Christ. Roman Catholic Archbishop, Father Spatz Silva, says he’s still investigating but has no doubt it’s a general message to steer clear of sin. Still others feel it’s a sign that they should drink more Coke.
