NEW ORLEANS (NBC) -- With Easter only a few days away, it seems fitting that Jesus is making an appearance for everyone to experience.

The Chapel at the Usuline Academy in New Orleans, Louisiana has a welcomed visitor in the form of a shadow.

This shadow showing up on a pillar inside the church is being interrupted as an image of Jesus bearing a crown of thorns.

Thousands of people have been lining up at the national shrine of our lady of prompt succor for a glimpse of the shadow that is impacting some many lives.

So many people have been visiting the display that church has extended their hours and has even hired security.

Visitors arrive with cameras in hand hoping to get a glimpse of the image.

The image has been up since March and if continues to stay up there is no telling how many people will be showing up to see the image with their own eyes.
