You could call it a divine sign: a Massachusetts man said he couldn't believe his eyes when he saw Jesus Christ on a drop cloth at his home.
“My heart went a million miles an hour. I was hyperventilating,” said Brian Krantz.
From a distance, it's a paint splattered drop cloth. But take a closer look… “A crown or a halo. Two eyes. Mustache, nose, there’s the chin, jaw line. His right arm out like that with cloths he was buried in hanging down,” said Krantz.
To Brian Krantz, the image is perfectly clear.
“I can't deny this. This is what it is. It looks like Jesus Christ,” Krantz said.
Krantz used the drop cloth four years ago to spray paint his shutters; he used it 50 or 60 more times before he noticed something for the first time.
“I had it folded up like this and I threw it on the floor and this is what I saw first,” Krantz said as he held up the cloth.
Krantz said it may take time for him to figure out what it means. For now, he and his girlfriend believe it's no coincidence.
“I’m not sure why, but everybody needs some hope in life. And I hope that this is something that will give him hope,” said Julie Anne Aloise, Krantz’s girlfriend.
Krantz said he plans to frame the image and keep it in his home.
