Face of Christ in My Window?

Maybe my eyes are merely playing tricks on me, but just the other day I was learning more about the Shroud of Turin. This morning as the sun was rising through my window I happened to look up and see what appeared to be an outline of a face; the branches that created a shadow on my window seemed to form a perfect crown of thorns. I also was struck by how in the image of the shroud His eyes appear to be closed or cast down, which is what it looks like in the window image. It’s moments like these where I believe Our Lord likes to give His little children hints that He is always near…

The Image with no filter.

A MOST blessed feast of Our Mother and Queen’s glorious Immaculate Conception!

  1. That’s incredible. I watched a great documentary about the Shroud of Turin a few days ago. Amazing.
    I would have seen the same thing you did, GLORY!
    Love to you,

      1. Thanks, Jade, praying for you, too, in these strange days! There isn’t a whole lot of guidance from the Church regarding creative writing, so I’m always appreciative when you like my stories, as I subject everything I write and say and do to the Immaculata. Anyway, I definitely can see the visage in these pictures you captured, and it recalls to me the verses of Joseph Mary Plunkett’s “I See His Blood Upon the Rose”:

        I see his blood upon the rose
        And in the stars the glory of his eyes,
        His body gleams amid eternal snows,
        His tears fall from the skies.

        I see his face in every flower;
        The thunder and the singing of the birds
        Are but his voice—and carven by his power
        Rocks are his written words.

        All pathways by his feet are worn,
        His strong heart stirs the ever-beating sea,
        His crown of thorns is twined with every thorn,
        His cross is every tree.

      2. This song was actually sung by some of our novices in Carmel! The lyrics were really something. I agree 100% with the Church and creative writing. Let’s stick together and hasten the triumph of the Immaculate Heart

  2. Oh, really? I had no idea it had been set to music, now I wish I could hear it, haha. Amen, all for the greater glory of God and Mary!

      1. They sounded MUCH better than us! I always like the voices of men and women together for polyphony. Don’t get me wrong I think we had a nice choir, but women singing “thirds” can be a bit odd sometimes!
