Visitors flock to see image of dead priest

The image of what appears to be a priest holding a child has mysteriously appeared on the wall of a church in Chile.

Visitors from all over the country are flocking to see the figures at the Christo Rey de Tome Church in Santiago, reports Las Ultimas Noticias.

They believe it is the figure of Father Hurtado, who looked after needy kids when he was alive and who's due to be canonised at the end of the month by the Pope.

According to local priests, the figures started to appear five weeks ago.

Priest Hernan Henriquez said: “We don’t know what’s happening, we can’t be 100% sure but it appeared out of nowhere.”
