Something Holy in Toledo

It's a stressful day at the doctor's office, for his wife's pregnancy has been tough on her, and Mr. Brazier, a man of faith, opts to say a "Hail Mary." Eventually, to everyone's surprise he gets to a part where he says, "And blessed is the fruit of thy womb...Jesus!"

"What?" the stunned technician and wife say.

"Jesus! He's there on the ultrasound!" Brazier states, pointing. "Honey, you better start eating more, cause you're eating for our baby and the Lord!"

Go pay homage yourself (can you just bring a picture of myrrh if it's only an ultrasound of Jesus?) at the heartwarming story Jesus Spotted in Ultrasound, and be sure to go through the image gallery.

Image five brings to mind the question, Who had the t-shirt concession in Bethlehem? And at least one follow-up question, Did one of those t-shirts feature a babe in a manger and the line: "The chosen people get a savior, and all I get is this lousy t-shirt"?

Of course one wonders why Randall Terry and others of his ilk didn't pore over the EEG of Terry Schiavo, trying to insist that the image of Christ was in there someplace. The argument could go like this: 1) Through transubstantiation, Jesus comes to his faithful in the Eucharist; 2) Churches serve unleavened hosts as the Eucharist; 3) Schiavo's EEG was as flat as a Eucharist; 4) Therefore Christ was present in her brainscan.

Jesus appeared in my leftover kibble as a Chihuahua. God is great!-- especially when one can sell His leavings on E-Bay.

Actually, it looked more like the chick two cubicles over, on a good hair day.
