Ms. Salerno was at [Brownie's Famous Pizzeria, a long-standing eatery on Luzerne Street] and talking with her granddaughter, 23-year-old Jackie Krouchick, while she made a pizza. Her granddaughter is a single mother who she said is struggling through tough times. Ms. Krouchick told her grandmother she worried she was losing her faith.I love the implication that atheists are just too fucking dumb to comprehend the presence of Jesus in a tub of pizza sauce. Even a two-year-old knows Jesus when he sees him!
As Ms. Salerno poured tomato sauce from a white plastic bucket, she urged her granddaughter to keep believing. That is when she saw it, the image of a man with long hair and a beard in the leftover sauce.
...Maryann Marsico, who works at Brownie's, said even an atheist would find it unmistakable.
"My 2-year-old grandson knows who it was. ... He just looked at it and said, 'That's Papa Jesus,' " Ms. Marsico said.
It was not lost on Ms. Marsico that Jesus appeared at Brownie's at the start of Lent, a holy Christian time that also happens to spur pizza sales because observers are not supposed to eat meat on Fridays.
"I will never cheat and eat meat again," she said.
I will resist the ungenerous urge to respond in kind.
