Miracle at Tim Hortons (Part 1)


As I mentioned last week, Jesus miraculously manifested Himself only once in Canada. In 1998, He appeared on the side wall of a Tim Hortons donut store in Bras d'Or, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

See, Jesus is no eedjit. Everyone in this country goes to their local Tim Hortons all the time. If you want to get noticed in Canada, well, you know what to do. So He did. One Holy Icon appeared at another Holy Icon. (Yes, we Canadians take our donuts that seriously).

I think His miraculous appearance lasted about a week or so. Huge crowds of people came to marvel at the Holy Wall. Then one day, a Tim Hortons employee finally got around to changing a couple of burnt out bulbs in the outdoor security lighting and . . . Jesus disappeared! Seems He'd just been a trick of light and shadow all along.

I'll leave the theological significance of that up to you.

Well, it makes sense he would appear in a doughnut, I mean he asked his followers to eat of his body, right? The holy sacrament. So, why not a doughnut? ;)

I've had donuts that were tasty enough to qualify as a religious experience.

Dear Debra,
Where have I been??? I don’t even know myself...I had a little vacation of sorts,but thankfully I am here and have just read your wonderful posts on “Auntie Beehive”...what a great series. I think you should write a book on her as the stories are really magical...I look forward to more on her...

Hmmm...Cape Breton? Now I'm thinking that perhaps those that saw him had a bit o' whiskey in their double-double. Not to generalize too much...but I have some family and friends from Nova Scotia, and they are pretty good drinkers....

LOL, silly Jesus Freaks :)

Well of COURSE Jesus would hang at Tim Horton's. It's like the loaves and fishes, except it's donuts and coffee...they never run out.

Seriously this is like my favorite place in the world to eat breakfast. Please send one to Pennsylvania; I am tired of driving to Ohio (the closest Tim) for decent muffins. And on my occasional trips to Ontario where they're everywhere...my idea of heaven (sorry Jesus).

Now that is quite interesting, that he disappeared when the lights were changed. Hmm...

Jeanne said...

And he disappeared with a flip of a switch....
Had the opportunity to have some Tim Horton's donuts once...YUM!

I missed this one -- I was at my local Timmy's at the time. Bummer, eh? ;-)

I am laughing nonstop at your words, "If you want to get noticed in Canada, well, you know what to do."

I so love my country. ;-D
