Great guesses on the fire picture yesterday. Just in case you didn't see the papers, here's the story in the Guardian:
"The pose may be familiar though the setting is unusual. But that has not deterred some Roman Catholics from hailing a bonfire photograph as a miraculous apparition of the late John Paul II.
Polish workman Gregorz Lukasik was taking pictures at a prayer meeting near Beskid Zywiecki to mark the second anniversary of the Pope's death, when he shot the dancing flames at the precise moment of John Paul's passing. The picture found its way to Father Jarek Cielecki, editor of the Vatican News Service, who said that a Polish newspaper had found no trace of doctoring. "I have not said this is a miracle," he said, "but there is a sign, you cannot say that you cannot see anything."
