According to The Daily Mail, a British woman has discovered a religious relic that could rival the Shroud of Turin for its significance to Christianity.

While theologians and scientists continue to debate the authenticity of the shroud - the ancient cloth believed to have been wrapped around the body of the Messiah and which now bears his image - another piece of fabric mysteriously imprinted with the image of Jesus has been unearthed - on a washing line in Kent.

Sarah Crane, from Orpington, was stunned when she hung her laundry out to dry and discovered the face of Jesus staring back at her from a crumpled sock.  Is this the sole of Christ?


Miss Crane thinks so.  She was was so impressed by the clarity of the face she even built a shrine to the sock.

'I'd left the washing out to dry overnight - and it had probably been sitting there a bit too long when I noticed the face in the sock.'I called my boyfriend over straight away - we could both clearly see the face of Jesus in the sock. There is a straight-on face, and a side profile too - we couldn't believe it.

"I immediately took some pictures to show our family and friends - they all thought it was hilarious.

'We think it's a bit of a sign - but for what we don't know.'

Maybe a sign that you should invest in some 'wrinkle-free' fabric softener.  And a good therapist.
