Vatican misspells Jesus on Pope Francis commemorative coins
Embarrassing gaffe sees Latin inscription call the Christian Messiah 'Lesus'
The coins, created by the Italian State Mint, had the Pope’s official motto printed around the side, but referred to Jesus as Lesus.
Around four were sold before the mistake on the 6000 bronze, silver and gold medallions was pointed out.
The Latin phrase translated into English means: "Jesus, therefore, saw the publican, and because he saw by having mercy and by choosing, He said to him, ‘Follow me.'"
This was “the quotation that moved the young Jorge Mario Bergoglio when he felt the call to the priesthood” reported Catholic Culture.
It seems the devil is indeed in the details.
