In Fresno, California, people gather to witness the miracle of a tree which they claim ‘weeps God’s tears.’ According to experts though, the miracle they are witnessing is the tree dripping with bug excrement. In fact, one expert noticed the same-type tree directly across the street.
The tree which stands outside of St. Johns Cathedral brought Rosmarie Navarro to pray at the Crape Myrtle tree, “I said my prayer and asked the Lord to give me a miracle cause I’m really, really sick.”
Another parishioner Maria Ybarra said, “When you say ‘glory be to God in Jesus name’ the tree starts throwing out more water.”
Which begs the question: Why would God cry if you say “Glory be to God’?
Arborist Jon Reelhorn said something is falling from the tree and explains, “The aphides will suck the sap, the sap goes through the aphid and then it is a honey dew excrement from the aphid and it gets so heavy in the summertime that it will drip down.”
What that means is, it’s bug poo poo.
WPTV reports, “Maria Ybarra was the first one to feel the drops this Wednesday and whether they are aphid waste or water, she believes they’re divine.”
Ybarra said, “I can tell you looking at it from a scientific standpoint and a spiritual standpoint it is the work of God manifesting here on earth.”
According to parishioners, the ‘water’ started falling from the tree on Wednesday.
