Everybodys looking for sacraments...
... even on the bottom of an iron.
Note the sacramental language in this article, its not hard to find:
"reaffirmed my faith"
"Jesus is there"
Here is the piece from the Boston Herald:
Putting away laundry was the last place a Methuen woman thought she’d have a spiritual moment. But there it was: an image she saw as a manifestation of Jesus Christ on the bottom of her iron.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a miracle, but it made me say ‘Wow!’ ” said Mary Jo Coady, who was “uplifted” after first noticing the scorched image Sunday.
“I didn’t panic,” Coady told the Herald. “I was carrying the laundry, looked down at the iron and there was the image of Jesus. I picked it up and asked my daughters to take a look at it to make sure I wasn’t crazy. They were as amazed as I was.”
Raised in a Catholic household, Coady, 44, was brought up to “believe that life is good.”
“I was going through personal issues and this reaffirmed my faith,” said Coady, who is a frequent parishioner at St. Lucy’s Church in Methuen. “Believe it or not, finding and seeing that image was very uplifting. My faith was down, but seeing this made me think, wow, Jesus is there.”
But she has no plans to create a shrine around the household appliance. “I’m not saying it’s a big holy thing. I’m not going to go on tour with it. I don’t want people showing up at my house because it’s not going to do anything magic,” she explained. “It’s just a nice thing to share with people who do believe.”
