NORWALK, Conn., May 15 (UPI) -- A Connecticut man says he spotted an image of Jesus Christ in a blob of ink on a page of his local newspaper.

Joseph McCaffrey told the Norwalk Hour he was reading the May 2 edition of the paper when he spotted the oddly shaped blob of ink in the movie section and showed it to his wife, Wendy.

"I didn't see it at first, but as I was reading the paper, I said to my wife, the movie section is blotted out with ink and held it up for her to see," McCaffrey said. "And she shouted, 'It's Jesus!'"

McCaffrey said he showed the image to many of his friends to see if they reached the same conclusion as he and his wife.

"Some see the image, some don't, but the overwhelming majority said they could definitely see Jesus," McCaffrey said. "But, if Jesus is really trying to send me a message, I wish he popped up in the lotto section instead. Does he want me to see a movie?"

The couple said they regularly attend mass at the Church of the Good Shepherd.

Wendy McCaffrey said she can understand how some people might disagree with her identification of the image.

"It's like the ink blot test, everyone sees something different," Wendy said. "Or like looking at a cloud. You can see all sorts of images if you let your mind wander."
