It’s a Christmas Miracle: Man Finds Mother Mary in Tie-Dye Shirt

No fabric design comes as close to being an outright Rohrschach test as the run-together colors of a tie-dye shirt. Nonetheless,

A Florida man said he was shocked to discover an image of the Virgin Mary over the heart area of a homemade tie-dye T-shirt.

Tim Symonds of Suncoast said he regularly makes his own tie dye T-shirts…

… which means that he has many occasions to spot bunnies or demons or anything his imagination can produce, much a like a child spotting images in clouds.

[Symonds] was shocked recently to see an image on one of the shirts that appears to resemble the mother of Jesus, WWSB-TV, Sarasota, Fla., reported Wednesday.

“I have a basic idea of what the shirt’s going to look like but I tell everyone God does the real art work because where the shirt folds and how the dye runs is up to him and it often makes different images,” Symonds said.

“When I unfolded the shirt I noticed mother Mary was in the center of one the shirts by the heart,” Symonds said.

Let it be.
