Jesus Image Appears On Banana

Sitting down for an after lunch snack turned into a brush with all things holy when Lisa Swinton saw the face of Jesus on her banana peel. ‘‘I was like ‘Oh my God! It’s Jesus on a banana!’’ ‘‘I got it out of the fruit bowl and was about to peel it and eat it when I saw his face,’’ she told reporters. The impact of seeing Christ pressed into the banana did not stop the 39-year-old of Haberfield from still eating the fruit and depositing the holy peel. ‘‘I put some photos up on Facebook – one of my friends said it looked like a monkey.’’Ms Swinton is not a stranger to holy visions appearing in day to day household objects. ‘‘One of my friends said they saw the Holy Mother on their bathroom door and another saw an apparition of Mary on the mould of their shower floor,’’ she said. The fateful placing of her banana bunch underneath other fruit, Ms Swinton believes was the cause of the sacred imprint. ‘‘It definitely wasn’t that way when I bought it from Leichhardt Woollies,’’ she said.
