New Mexico Man Finds Image of Jesus on Tortilla
If the proof is in the pudding, the miracle is in the tortilla.
That’s what an Albuquerque, New Mexico, man is saying after he found an image of Jesus Christ last week on a piece of the flattened bread.
David Sandoval said he saw the image of the Lord on one of his mother’s baked tortillas while preparing to eat on Ash Wednesday.
He said he couldn't believe what he was seeing and passed the tortilla bearing the face of Jesus to his mother, who was also surprised.
Mr Sandoval told KOAT-TV: 'It became even more astonishing, with it being the first day of Lent. I passed it to my mom and the same response came from her, "Oh my God"'.
After seeing the image, Mr Sandoval opted not to eat it.
Instead, he did what anyone in his situation these days would do - he posted it on Facebook.
He said Mr Sandoval told the station: 'Comments started coming in, likes and all that.
'Everybody has been able to see it. They're calling it a miracle'.
He added: 'New Mexico has always been known to have interesting things happen during Lent time'.
Mr Sandoval said he felt it was a sign since it appeared on the first day of Lent - the Catholic period of fasting and prayer before Easter.
In the meantime, he said he and his family are looking for ways to preserve the tortilla.
For now, he's keeping the tortilla in a box.
