That's the feeblest Jesus yet. Since when is (the usual image of) Jesus 'a man with a long beard'? Especially not a bald man with a big nose and a long beard. Well done cleaner, I say. And boo sucks to the BBC. Did they run out of minor mistakes in exam papers to report?

Icon215 Faithful trek to Wisconsin shrine

The afflicted and the faithful have long made pilgrimages to the quiet country site where Belgian immigrant Adele Brise said in 1859 that she saw the Virgin Mary three times. For the past few years, maybe 30 or 50 people had trickled in daily to visit the chapel, Brise's grave and the candlelit crypt that marks the site of the apparition.

That changed in December, when Bishop David Ricken of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Green Bay certified after investigations by three theologians that Brise had indeed seen a beautiful lady in white who said she was the "queen of heaven."

That made the shrine, which is a mile from the unincorporated town of Champion, the USA's only official site where Mary is said to have appeared.

Icon102 Why some see the face of Jesus in their toast

You might have scratched your head in wonderment when a 10-year-old cheese sandwich sold at auction for a cool $28,000 simply because people thought they saw the face of the Virgin Mary in the folds of the stale food.

But there’s a long history of people finding meaning in mundane objects. And scientists now say they know why this happens -- and how it works.

I can kind of see the bearded man, but no way is there a women with shawl over her head when you turn it around.
