What do you make of this?

News circulated this morning about a young woman allegedly seeing Jesus’ silhouette in the Notre Dame Cathedral Fire’s flames.

Obviously this is all speculation and there is not one solid answer, but what do you think?

Here’s the photos below:

This Facebook user posted the photos, saying “When I looked at this photo last night, I was really astounded by what I saw. When I look at it, I see a silhouette of Jesus. I really see a vivid image.”

Here are a couple of photos of Jesus and Mary to compare it to:

God is present throughout all of this, even if we don’t physically see Him. Jesus or Mary’s image could be in this photo, if that is what it is.

After all, “Notre Dame” means “Our Lady” in English!

Do you see Jesus or Mary in the fire photos above?
