Louisiana line cook encounters holy eggplant

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Jul 15, 2014

A restaurant employee in Louisiana is claiming he found God in an eggplant.

It happened on Monday at Gino's Restaurant in Baton Rouge, according to WAFB-TV. Line cook Jermarcus Brady says when he cut into an eggplant, he could not believe what he found.

"I saw a miraculous image formed by the seeds. It spelled out the word God!"

Brady took photos of the eggplant to share with co-workers, family and friends. But, he believes the image is meant to be seen by everyone.

Brady is a religious man. He says that he is no stranger to life's struggle and that it is his faith in God that has helped him through. He says the significance of the eggplant is not lost on him.

The restaurant's owner, Gino Marino, says he has never seen anything like it.

"You could cut one million eggplants and you'd probably never see that again. It's that rare," says Marino.

Brady now allegedly says that he is scared to cut into another eggplant.

This isn't the first time that God has been found in an eggplant though. A Pennsylvania woman also found God in the purple vegetable in 2007.
