The Italian State Mint needs a better spellcheck program.

The Vatican had to withdraw more than 6,000 papal medals that went on sale Tuesday which spelled “Jesus” as “Lesus.”

The Telegraph reports that four medallions, commemorating the beginning of Pope Francis’ papacy, were sold before the typo was noticed and the coin went off the market.

As expected, the Twitterverse was quite amused.
