It is not strange to hear news of religious symbols or figures appearing in the most unlikely places. More often than not, these sorts of stories are of African origin.
However, Briefly.co.za has gathered the report of a similar occurrence in Europe. An image which resembles Jesus was captured in Agropoli, Italy.
The interesting figure was spotted in the sky by Alfredo Lo Brutto at his home on Friday, 1 March. Apparently, the sun had filtered through the clouds and the image appeared.
Alfredo was so fascinated by the sight that he took a series of photos and shared them on social media.
According to Daily Mail, the young man revealed that he is not one to share photos on the internet, but he was excited to share photos of the alleged Jesus because it looked beautiful.
He said: “I was enchanted by the view. I don't often share pictures on social media, but when I took this one, I instantly felt like I wanted other people to see it, because it was so beautiful.”
