S.A. woman sees face of St. Peter in rock

A San Antonio woman claims she sees the face of St. Peter in an agate stone.

She says the significance is clear.

The woman points out that in the Bible, Exodus 28:17:21, the verse describes priestly robes adorned with 12 stones. The 12 stones represented the 12 houses of Israel. In the passage, one of the 12 stones is an agate.

She also points out that Catholics believe Jesus changed Simon's name to "Peter"(Cephas in Aramaic, Petros [rock] in Greek) and said, " On this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it." (Matthew 16:13-20)

She says to her the stone is a symbol of hope, which is especially timely during this Easter season.

Ugly bastard, isn't he. Makes me feel good about myself, & that doesn't happen very often.

Jesus appears on discarded piece of chewing gum

#28  Postby DoctorE » Apr 09, 2010 11:16 am

Check out what the son of the master of the universe did... wow :P

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.

Maybe it's the thief from the next cross. That could still bring in money on eBay, right?

And it's not just seeing, but hearing too. Especially if we're guided by an authority or otherwise told what to expect to see and/or hear. For example.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-ZnPE3G_YY[/youtube]

The satanic messages in records played backwards thing is another example to illustrate a similar concept.

Sometimes, people just see what they want to see.
