Church leaders examining whether a miracle occurred at Jackson Catholic Middle School after student claims to have seen image of Jesus Christ on wafer.
Whether there was a miracle or not at Jackson Catholic Middle School on Friday must be carefully examined by church leaders.
In what is called “Eucharist adoration,” a large wafer of unleavened bread about 3 or 4 inches in diameter was blessed by a priest and set on a gold stand, called a luna, in the school chapel.
During the day, as adult volunteers sat near it, a student claimed to see the image of Jesus on the wafer.
Dave Krajewski, a psychotherapist with Crossroads Psychotherapy in Jackson and a Catholic, said he got a call from a friend about 4 p.m. Friday. He went to JCMS, 915 Cooper St., and was among 10 or 20 people squeezed into the chapel to observe the wafer.
The outline of the male figure, Krajewski said, was a red or orange vibrant color. He had long brown hair and looked like he was wearing a robe.
“I left the school not knowing if I had seen a miracle or not,” Krajewski said. “But I’m not ruling it out.”
The Rev. Cecilio Reyna of St. Mary Catholic Church, 120 E. Wesley St., wrote on his blog about being called and driving over to see the wafer.
“I did see what appeared to be the outline of a man’s face with some bright spots toward the bottom of the luna. One of the spots where it was glowing,” he wrote (on a website).
About 8 p.m. the blessed wafer was moved to St. John Catholic Church, 711 Francis St., for safe keeping. But before it was placed in the tabernacle, it was placed on the altar and several lights were turned on.

(Sent in by Mark Zaveson. I could not resist posting this one. Here we have another record of people seeing things. Is it wrong to call the persons who promote this nonsense shysters and charlatans? They trick the simple and would send souls to Hell by having them to follow after shadows and worship idols. 2.14.2011. )
