BEEVILLE— There was nothing inherently different about Ernesto Garza when he walked into the newspaper office with a piece of foil folded in half.
An older man who attends La Amistad Adult Daycare, Garza walked in, sat down and said, “I have something to show you.”
“I was sitting just like I am now,” Garza said. “I ate more than half of my taco, then a fly was flying around, so I grabbed the flyswatter, and I hit it, and when I looked down, I saw it.”
It was the face of Jesus looking up at him from his half-eaten tortilla.
“I’d been eating it and hadn’t seen it,” Garza said. “It made me a little nervous. I was wondering what was going on here.”
Nothing like that had ever happened at the center before, though they do have Bible study and prayer meetings for the clients.
And, while it’s the first occurrence at the center, Jesus has appeared on a tortilla before.
