The image of Jesus has a history of unexpected appearances, from rocks and windows to medical X-rays and a tortilla. Add to that a sauce bucket at Brownie's Famous Pizzeria, a long-standing eatery on Luzerne Street. It happened on the first Friday of Lent.

Ms. Salerno was at Brownie's and talking with her granddaughter, 23-year-old Jackie Krouchick, while she made a pizza. Her granddaughter is a single mother who she said is struggling through tough times. Ms. Krouchick told her grandmother she worried she was losing her faith.

As Ms. Salerno poured tomato sauce from a white plastic bucket, she urged her granddaughter to keep believing. That is when she saw it, the image of a man with long hair and a beard in the leftover sauce.


:picard:


The message had been delivered, she said, and she did not want the image of her Lord "just sitting there in a pizza place."


Why deliver the message to a trashy pizza place in the first place?

Tourist 'snaps Jesus' in a famous cliff face
Image
An American tourist who travelled to Ireland to reconnect with her Catholic roots has snapped what she believes to be an image of the face of Jesus Christ in the Cliffs of Moher.

Sandra Clifford, 42, was spellbound as the "divine apparition" appeared in a patch of lighter rock in the cliff face at the popular County Clare tourist site earlier this month.

The pilot from San Francisco snapped the photo with her digital camera on a rainy day on 4 November, which she described as "a day of rainbows".

"To me it was Jesus Christ straight away," Clifford told website Irish Central late last week.

"I am a pilot, so I am always skeptical of what I see, that is why I started grabbing people and asking them what they saw."

Clifford, a practicing Catholic, is not the only one who has been struck by the image's likeness to the almighty.

I saw Jesus outside the liquor store.

Didn't give him any money though - I knew what He'd spend it on...

Re: Jesus appears on discarded piece of chewing gum

London: A Devon family claims to have seen Jesus in a discarded chewing gum.

Nelly Noden, a mother of two, said that she was chewing her gum on Good Friday and left it on mantelpiece to chew it later after eating crisps. But when she picked it up later to chew it again she found an image of Christ on it.

"The second I put my eye on it, I could see him", she said.

Is it just me, but doesn't that one actually look more like a bum than a face? Sort of in the Renaissance nude sort of way, I mean.

A MELBOURNE man insists that he has found the face of Jesus and the Virgin Mary in a humble coffee cup.

The face of Jesus, or at least a bearded man, is visible in a coffee stain on the cup when looked at right way up. For a while.

But a second religious image, the Virgin Mary with a shawl over her head, may also be made out when the cup is turned upside down.

"Jeff" said his sister had been about to wash up the cup stained following her morning brew (a turkish blend) when she saw the image of the bearded man looking back at her.

“She jumped three feet backward,” he said

Are this people for real? Or are they feeding of the vulnerable to make money by selling these items? My first immediate thought when I read the second paragraph which reads
She did not want people descending on her family's West Scranton pizzeria, and she did not want to invite critics or doubters of what she felt was a clear sign.
why am I reading about this then?

I would like to imagine that these "sightings" are either a desperate attempt at making some money, get your 15 minutes of fame or have a laugh.

Disturbing too that Hitler is making an appearance. Is he trying to say something?

Woman says she captured Jesus image in her TV

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (CBS12) -- A local woman says she took a picture of her television and in the image was a reflection she says clearly shows Jesus Christ praying.

Guerda Maurice says she used her phone to take a picture of something she saw on the television screen. She was watching the show the Bachelor and saw a design she wanted to capture, so she grabbed her phone to record the image.

"Then the phone didn't work, and I say oh my God, look what I did, now my phone don't work," Guerda told us.

The phone was dead until the next day.

"When the phone light up, I say oh my God."

What did she see?

"I flip the phone now and I see Jesus picture. I said, oh my God where did that picture come from? I said, this is Jesus, and I was shaking."

Guerda sent the distorted image to her sister.

"I said Ann guess what? Jesus appeared to me in my phone. And my sister said 'no, that's not true.' I said yes Jesus appeared to me, and she said to me, Guerda you're crazy."

Jesus Christ has made yet another appearance on a potato chip.

At least that's what Newport resident Carol Isaak believes. The night before Easter, Isaak, 67, decided to snack on some potato chips.

"The second chip I pulled out of the bag, I said, 'Oh my God, Vern, look at this,'â " Isaak said.

Isaak's husband, Vern, replied, "It looks like Jesus on the cross."

"And I said, 'I think so, too,'â " Isaak said. "It seemed like a sign or something. I got all fuzzy and warm."

Instead of eating the chip, Isaak took pictures of it, which she emailed to friends and family.

"I wanted to take it to church yesterday and show it to our minister, but I was afraid it would get broken," Isaak said Monday, April 9.

She said the ripple-style Clancy's brand chip purchased at an Aldi store is now safely stored in her china cabinet. She said some friends have offered to put it up for sale on eBay, but she doesn't plan to do that.

This thread is hilarious. Apparently Jesus likes inhabiting rocks, trees and food.
