Faithful see Virgin Mary in tree, flock to NJ city

Faithful flock to tree in New Jersey city where some say they see Virgin Mary in bark damage By The Associated Press

WEST NEW YORK, N.J. (AP) People are flocking to a tree in northern New Jersey where some say they see the image of the Virgin Mary.

Makeshift shrines have sprung up by the tree in West New York. People have been praying, crying and leaving flowers and candles as they look at the small opening where the bark was stripped away.

A fence and other barricades also have been set up around the tree, which is in a sidewalk along a commercial strip.



Newark Archdiocese spokesman Jim Goodness tells The Journal of Jersey City (http://bit.ly/ShP4sI) the image is likely "some discoloration that resembles Our Lady of Guadalupe."
