Jesus Didn't Use a Footstool to Wash Feet
This footstool, discovered in a home on Church Street in Toledo, Ohio, has reaffirmed Roberto Colon’s faith. According to Colon, and his wife, the face of Jesus can be seen on this worn, wooden piece of furniture, though Colon concedes that the face is easier to see from a distance. Reported by WTOL, the broadcast includes a mention of Donna Lee, a person I interviewed for Madonna of the Toast because of the Jesus pierogi she fried up one Easter morning a few years back. You’ll have to read the book to find out more about Lee, but I can tell you that during the course of our conversation she belted out an excellent rendition of “New York, New York.”
Lee sold her divine foodstuff on eBay for $1,775. For now, Colon plans on keeping the footstool, though he hasn’t ruled out auctioning off the item. He thinks bidding would begin at $100,000! When Jesus washed the disciples' feet, it was an act of humility, something Colon may get a dose of with such grandiose monetary expectations. Good luck, Roberto.
