Virgin Mary spotted in suburban tree trunk

Breaking News

The image, which resembles the mother of Jesus in her traditional open-armed pose, has reportedly been causing local residents to shake and cry in wonder.

Christopher Moreau, who first spotted the tree’s markings in his neighbour’s garden in the Toronto suburb of Scarborough, believes that it may have helped the health of his mother-in-law, who recently recovered from cancer.

"At first I thought I was seeing things," the 47-year-old said. "Then I went and got my mother-in-law to tell her. She was overwhelmed by it. She was crying."

"I don't know why it's there, but I think it's a blessing," he told the Toronto Star newspaper, adding that he hoped it would help others looking for a miracle.
