Woman 'sees scorched Jesus on iron'

A woman has had her faith reaffirmed by seeing an image of Jesus Christ scorched onto her iron.

Mary Jo Coady from Methuen, Massachusetts, told the Boston Herald that she was surprised by the supposed manifestation.

The 44-year-old said: "I wouldn't say it's a miracle, but it made me say 'Wow!'. I didn't panic, 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."

She added: "I was going through personal issues and this reaffirmed my faith. 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.

"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. It's just a nice thing to share with people who do believe."
