Mary and Jesus appear in lava lamp

16/01/09 | Posted by Ralph

"I had been going through a tough time and was paying for a sign … a divine sign from God that I was not alone and that all would work out fine,” John Smith from Sydney explains on his website, “I turned on my brand new lava lamp and watched in awe as the unmistakeable image of the Holy Mary cradling the Baby Jesus appeared.”

 Mary and Jesus wax lyrical

Mr Smith’s life has been transformed, according to his website.


When I was at my lowest, I prayed for a miracle and it came ... Only a couple of weeks after Holy Mary appeared to me in the lava lamp, every facet of my life began to miraculously transform.

I’m presuming nothing else started to melt.

There have been sightings of Jesus hidden (or not so hidden) in various unusual places ever since he walked the earth two thousand years ago. From clouds to toast, cloths to shadows it seems that the visual story of Jesus is waiting to intrude into the corner of our eye. See more yourself in the rejesus module Unexpected faces.

Sorry, but we're no longer receiving comments

Heehee! It obviously meant a lot to the guy concerned, but it does seem rather silly. Another person would have looked at it and not seen anything - just a blob. I think all too often people are looking for “signs and wonders”, almost idolising them. They use it as a substitute for the real deal - a relationship with our Father, who lives with us in each present moment.
