Vatican Denounces Soldier Who Ate MRE Poundcake, Had Miracle Image Of Virgin Mary
KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN - Vatican officials are denouncing a U.S. Army soldier today after learning that the deployed service-member ate a "miraculous and holy MRE poundcake," according to a witness statements.
Miracles happen everyday throughout the military, from having a bullet miss by inches to a roadside bomb failing to detonate. For Specialist Tom Moore, it meant finding a divine piece of lemon poppyseed poundcake.
While field stripping his MRE's prior to a week long operation, the 24 year-old infantryman and devout Catholic decided to snack on a poundcake. Upon opening it, he found the most accurate depiction of the Virgin Mary ever to be discovered.
He posted the image to Facebook before stuffing the poundcake inside his rucksack as a good luck charm.
"It went viral," Moore said. "I had no idea, but by the third day, I had over a million likes. I later found an email sent from the Vatican asking me to keep it safe so it could receive canonical approval upon my return."
