Visions, Visions Everywhere

Who needs Eucharistic adoration when you can spot Jesus in a tree?

At least, that seems to be the message these days, thanks to a sighting at a Tennessee parish.

The development is but the latest of a vaunted tradition of religious figures reputedly making cameo appearances on ordinary objects, joining such celebrated phenomena as Our Lady of Guadalupe in chocolate, the Good Lord on an X-ray and, of course, the Nunbun (which was stolen in late 2005)

But still, in terms of sheer "you couldn't make it up if you wanted to" value, my personal favorite remains the seer who somehow saw Dean Martin in Purgatory.... No joke.
