A Florida woman snacking on her favorite salty treat found what she calls a sign from God on one of her Goldfish crackers.

Patti Burke told Florida Today she thought Pepperidge Farms was running some kind of promotion when she spotted a crown and a cross imprinted on the cracker she was about to eat during Holy Week.

"They called me back and said there’s no way this could have been printed like that in the factory," the Melbourne woman told the newspaper. "They said it sounds like something miraculous happened."

Burke eats 2 to 3 pounds of Goldfish crackers in a week.

After hearing her pastor's Easter Sunday sermon on Jesus' resurrection, she told USA Today she believes the cracker is a sign that God is present in everyday life.

Burke hasn't decided what to do with her holy cracker yet. She carries it around in an earring box padded with gauze.
