Folks gather to pray at a miracle tree that ‘weeps God’s tears’, turns out it’s bug excrement dripping down

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.

    I recall several times in my youth of going to Sunday School and then having lunch with my family after church. However, I do not recall wanting to wash down my lunch with bug juice.

    Next time I have an aphid infestation in my greenhouse, I will consider it a blessing from GOD and a holy experience. All praise the lord, the bugs are among us.

      We have these very very loud cicadas during the summer – kind of like the palmetto bugs in FL – I’ll bet they can make a tree weep really fast. Never seen people worshipping bug pee before though.

      • mea_mark

        The cicadas are signing the praises of the lord to all who will hear. You should consider yourself blessed.

    God’s saying “Stop worshiping trees! Didn’t I teach the druids ANYthing?”

    Leave the tree alone and go find a grilled cheese or a cheeto that look like Jesus!

    Thank you – and he thanks you. If you really want him to love you, send flip flops. He can destroy a pair of flip flops in about 1 hour….he has KONG toys if you can believe it.
    He adores finding stories about “The Stupid” …
    “aphid pee” – wonderful.

    Fresno isn’t exactly the High IQ capital of the world, not even in America, not even in California, not even in the Central Valley. Should I just say that these people have been brainwashed by religion and if they made it through high school they probably were given the answers to the test questions by the nun teaching the class.

    HAHAHAHAHA get shit on!

    Nuns teach about aphid pee?
