‘Jesus Stick’ Up For Sale

WEST EDMESTON, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You’ve heard of the Virgin Mary grilled cheese sandwich that was auctioned off last year, and now there’s another wacky religious- themed object for sale: “The Jesus Stick.”

The Jesus Stick seems to depict the image of Christ within a weathered stick and is just over a foot long and three inches wide.

The sacred stick was discovered by a snowshoer who found it stuck in a frozen lake in New York.

The snowshoer’s neighbor, who only wants to be known as “Marylou,” is selling the stick on eBay until tomorrow (Sep. 24).

So far, the stick hasn’t received any bids, but Marylou expects someone “that finds deep meaning from the stick” such as a “spiritual or religious individual” will want it.

Marylou says she has no clue what price the stick will eventually sell for or if it will sell at all. Though some people might consider a religious relic priceless, the starting bid is set at $49.99.
