The Quebec seniors at the La Rive de Grande-Riviere seniors residence are cherishing what many are calling a divine message . . . in a potato. When a cook was cutting potatoes, he found one with a sign of the cross at the center.
It is not clear if the divine message is to carbo load or to go Atkins. It is still a message and the potato has been preserved as a sign for people to visit and admire.
Residents insist that the potato is bringing them strength and comfort — and not simply because they are a rich source of vitamin B6 and a good source of potassium.
Emilien Morin, head of the residents’ committee of the La Rive residence in Grande-Riviere in eastern Quebec is quoted as insisting that “anyone who is Christian would say that’s a sign.”
I am not quite sure about that assessment, but the Lord moves in mysterious ways.
