Sermon On The Blog: The Virgin & The Pizza Pan

She's back.

Yes, the Virgin Mary has appeared once again-- this time, on a pizza pan in an Austin elementary school kitchen.

Faithful: Pizza pan delivers message from God

By Dan Lauck / KHOU-TV

They say God works in mysterious ways. And so it was on Wednesday -- yes, Ash Wednesday -- some kitchen workers at Pugh Elementary were cleaning up.

When the pizza pan was cleaned, this image resembling the Virgin Mary appeared.

It was Lupe Rodriguez's day to scrub the pans and fight the burned-on stains.

"I started looking at it like this, y'know," she said.

The stain was emerging, growing more familiar until... she couldn't believe what she was seeing.

"It showed me like the Virgin Mary," Rodriguez said.

She showed it around the kitchen.

Her co-workers agreed. It was the Virgin Mary.

Seriously snarky headline, wasn't it?

Check out the news report's ending:

The true believers care not that this began with a cheese pizza.

They come to touch the image and convene with God -- asking not for delivery, but deliverance.

Truly heavy sigh.

Thus Endeth Today's Sermon.

Go forth today and study the stains on your baking pans. You just never know what you might see...

I mean it, damn it!

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
Judges 16:19--
