When I describe seeing the Holy in mundane things around me, I’m often talking about unexpected grace, mercy, peace, or other such abstract experiences. Not so, for some of our other Christian brothers and sisters. When you say “see the Holy” they literally “see the Holy”. Take for instance, these photos.
Yes, at right is a bonfire which some believe resembles the silhouette of late Pope John Paul II making a blessing. Amateur photographer Grzegorz Lukasik, took the photo in southern Poland, on April 2, 2007, during a vigil marking the second anniversary of the Polish pope’s death. Data on Lukasik’s digital camera says the picture was taken at 21.37:30, exactly the hour when the pope died. Of course, the Pope was from Poland, and so his appearance in his home country seems natural.
And we wonder why people don’t take religion seriously.
