Jesus comes to Donegal... in a rock
You know you've got little to be doing when you spend your time exploring a national park looking for images of Jesus appearing naturally. That's exactly what the guys up in Donegal have done.
The staff at Glenveagh National Park say they've found Jesus... in a rock. The discovery was found in recent weeks and is now the talk of the county.
In times like this we need some guidance, but this might be going a little too far. The stone which apparently shows Jesus's face, while on the cross, even features a crown of thorns.

The stone was found by the park manager, Pat Vaughan, while out for a bit of a ramble. He told Donegaldaily.com: "I just happened to be doing bits and pieces when it caught my eye. The more I looked at it the more I seen the face of what looks like Jesus".
Sensible Pat said he didn't want to get carried away in the religious frenzy. "I brought [pictures] in to some of the staff and showed them the pictures without mentioning what I thought it looked like.
"The reaction has been amazing and everyone said the same thing – that it was a picture of Our Lord. No matter how many times I look at it I see the same thing."
The location of the rock in the park is being kept a secret, which is probably a good idea considering this country's history with weeping/bleeding statues and the like.
