"I've just seen a face ..."


According to CBC and Canadian Cynic: "A steady stream of the faithful has been visiting a church in a tiny Prince Edward Island community to see what many are calling the face of Jesus on a cloth hanging behind the altar."
Of course it also looks a bit like Paul McCartney, recent visitor to PEI.
Or Anne of Green Gables. Or a potato.

Update : Mad Dog has just added this one to his excellent collection of pictures of other Jesus sightings on nacho bins, truck tailgates, perogies and basketball backboards.
My favourite is the one where ants chew an image of the Virgin Mary on a leaf, along with the word "pas" which is evidently a misspelling of the word for "peace" in Portuguese.

You know, I think if I was a friggin deity and I really needed to get a message out to my base, I wouldn't put that message on the underside of a leaf and I certainly wouldn't employ ants that can't spell.

A few more of these and they could afford to give up the seal harvest.

When I stand naked with my back to a full length mirror and bend over and look thru my legs into the mirror, I can see the face of the Virgin Mary on my scrotum. I have no idea why God may have chosen me for this miracle as I am not much of a believer but there it is plain as day! I tried to get my wife to have a look but she refused. Is there some religious authority I should be contacting for an official verification?

If I was a deity, I'd use a blog.

snickertybiggetz :
There is a clear and well-established precedent for your situation -- you have to sell your scrotum on ebay.
Just be grateful no ants were involved this time.

I guess I will need a photo for that. Can we arrange a session?

snickz:
Nice try.
I do believe there's a scanner down at the public library which should prove more than adequate for your purposes.

why is it always the face of jesus? It looks like Edith Swetzelhopper; the lady down at the local grocery store. Spittin image. It also sort of looks like Yoko Ono; and Barbara Boxer.
So where is the headline "Barbara Boxer's face seen on a tortilla; better elect her President....'

He couldn't save Dana Reeve; but he could create a shadow on a churchcloth. What an omnipotent god!
