A remarkable discoloration on a wall in France has generated quite the buzz as it bears a striking resemblance to the face of Jesus. Located in the city of Thionville, the somewhat eerie-looking stain sits on an otherwise-unremarkable barrier separating two residential properties. Earlier this month, it was noticed by a man named Bernard Peter, who spotted it while looking out the window of his home.
Although Peter is skeptical that 'the face' is a divine message, his wife, who is stricken with Parkinson's disease, had a more profound reaction to the sight. "When I told her what I saw," he told a French newspaper, she made the difficult walk over to the window and could not believe her eyes. Rather than say a thing, he recalled, she simply burst into tears.
