Roman Catholic Parishioners See Face Of Jesus In Seat Cushion?

123File this one under “deceived.” This sad article at says thousands of people have flocked to a Roman Catholic church on the French Indian Ocean island of Reunion after believers said they saw the “face of Christ” in the pleats of a church cushion. Yes that’s right – rational people are saying this with a straight face. Have a look at the picture on the left and see if you get all teary eyed over it.

Church officials limited access to the Jesus-Misericordieux church in eastern Saint-Andre’s Cambuston district to a few minutes per visitor as traffic in the area ground to a halt. Apparently, there are a lot of people who don’t use their sense of discernment properly.

One 82-year-old parishioner said, with tears welling up in her eyes, that  the face was a divine phenomenon, while  another called the church a holy site. The priest himself went one step further and called it a sign of God. Really, in the pleats of a cushion?

I don’t know about you, but to me, the face look more like a clown. Perhaps God has a greater sense of humour than we thought. Just goes to show how deceived and confused some of these worshippers in false churches really are.
