ESPANOLA, N.M., March 1 (UPI) -- A New Mexico man said he discovered the image of Jesus Christ on a tortilla he was preparing on Ash Wednesday.
David Sandoval of Espanola said he was shocked to discover the face of Jesus on his food, but he has always been a believer in Christianity, KOAT-TV, Albuquerque, reported Thursday.
"It became even more astonishing, with it being the first day of Lent," Sandoval said. "I passed it to my mom and the same response came from her, 'Oh my God.'"
Sandoval said he posted a picture of the image on Facebook and the response has largely echoed his own.
"Everybody has been able to see it. They're calling it a miracle," Sandoval said. "New Mexico has always been known to have interesting things happen during Lent time."
