Woman Washes Socks, Finds Jesus
While theologians and scientists continue to debate the authenticity of the shroud – the ancient cloth believed to have been wrapped around the body of the Messiah and which now bears his image – another piece of fabric mysteriously imprinted with the image of Jesus has been unearthed – on a washing line in Kent.
Sarah Crane, from Orpington, was stunned when she hung her laundry out to dry and discovered the face of Jesus staring back at her from a crumpled sock. Is this the sole of Christ?
Miss Crane thinks so. She was was so impressed by the clarity of the face she even built a shrine to the sock.
‘I’d left the washing out to dry overnight – and it had probably been sitting there a bit too long when I noticed the face in the sock.‘I called my boyfriend over straight away – we could both clearly see the face of Jesus in the sock. There is a straight-on face, and a side profile too – we couldn’t believe it.
“I immediately took some pictures to show our family and friends – they all thought it was hilarious.
‘We think it’s a bit of a sign – but for what we don’t know.’
Maybe a sign that you should invest in some ‘wrinkle-free’ fabric softener. And a good therapist.
