Man of the Cloth

It’s always funny to me when someone claims to see the image of Jesus Christ on a normal, everyday object: a lightning scar on a tree, a corn flake floating in a bowl of milk or even a well-placed stain on a shirt.

The latest Jesus “sighting” involves a paint splattered drop cloth. And the person blessed with this latest “divine touch” is Brian Krantz of Saugus, Massachusetts.

Four years ago, Krantz used the drop cloth when he painted his shutters. It continued being useful through more than 50 jobs, all the time gathering more and more paint.

Recently, Krantz pulled out the folded cloth and tossed it on the floor. That’s when he saw something that forever changed his life: the image of Jesus Christ looking back at him.

“I can’t deny this,” he told reporters later. “This is what it is. It looks like Jesus Christ.”

His girlfriend Julie sees the image as something else: hope.

“I’m not sure why, but everybody needs some hope in life,” she said. “And I hope that this is something that will give him hope.”

Either way, Krantz considers this as more than a coincidence and now plans to frame the image and keep it in his home. With any luck, it will guide him as he continues to live a life of goodness and faith.

Personally, I didn’t see much in the drop cloth until I saw Krantz describe it in a newscast. And though it still seems a little far-fetched, perhaps some of you “true believers” will view it differently.

Check it out for yourself and if you do see Jesus there, please do me a favor and say a little prayer for me. It’s not easy being a heathen!
