GLENDALE, Ariz., Dec. 3 (UPI) -- An Arizona woman said she was given peace and comfort from an unlikely source -- a pancake bearing an image she said resembles the Virgin Mary.

Bianca Lopez said she was cooking Batter Blaster pancakes for her family a few days before Thanksgiving at their Glendale home and she noticed the image of Jesus' mother looking back at her from the final pancake of the batch, KNXV-TV, Phoenix, reported Thursday.

"I think it's God's way of telling us that the holidays aren't just about presents. It's about ... spending time with your family and friends and telling us to not forget about him, that he's always there watching over us and taking care of us," Lopez said.

Lopez said she is keeping the pancake safe in her freezer until she can decide what to do with it.
