There's the Shroud of Turin -- and now there's the Towel of Coventry.

A 31-year-old dance instructor from the British city says a bizarre brown stain that appeared on one of her tea towels actually shows the face of Jesus Christ.

Roisin McCourt told Metro that the discolored spot is clearly recognizable as the face of a man with a beard and long hair.

"When I took it out, I could not believe it," she told the newspaper. "I could see it was Jesus straightaway. I took it to my husband, and he agreed with me.

"I don't even know what the stain was made from. I had not seen it before I had put it in the washing," she said.

For many people, a stained towel is an indication that they need to use a more powerful laundry detergent. But for McCourt, the brown smudge was a powerful spiritual sign.

"I am Catholic, but I am not extremely religious. We don't go to Mass every weekend, but after finding this, it has definitely made my faith stronger."
