Great gift idea: a Jesus toaster?
Yes, you can have the image of our Lord and Savior seared onto the face of your morning bread for only $31.95 plus shipping and handling ...
"Have breakfast with Jesus every morning!” writes Monsignor Charles Pope, in a tongue-in-cheek message on the website of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., “In the past you’ve had see Him with eyes of faith. Now you can see Him right on the toast! It’s the Jesus Toaster! Just $31.95 plus shipping and handling.”
The monsignor is writing about a breakfast toaster that, yes, sears the face of the Christ onto any bagel, flatbread or piece of bread you wish.
Pope is the pastor of the Church of the Holy Comforter-St. Cyprian, a Catholic congregation in the District of Columbia.
“No Christmas is complete without this fine new toaster,” he writes, with just a bit of sarcasm. “Was not Jesus born in Bethlehem which means ‘House of Bread!?’ So celebrate Christmas all year long! Did Jesus not leave His face on Veronica’s veil? Now you can see His face and eat it too!
“With the Jesus toaster you just never know where Jesus will pop up!”
However, if you don’t want to buy a toaster devoted completely to the
Lord Jesus Christ, then you might consider Archie McPhee’s “Jesus Toaster Tattoo.”
