Virgin Of Guadalupe Image Revealed On Bell Gardens Tree

BELL GARDENS (CBS) — A tree behind a home in Bell Gardens has become a shrine after a branch’s removal revealed what Catholics believe to be the Virgin of Guadalupe.

Devout Catholics are flocking to the home in the 6500 block of Ajax Avenue to view the image and pray. Last Thursday more than 200 residents came to pray at the tree.

The Virgin of Guadalupe is Mexico’s most popular religious and cultural image and the Catholic Church proclaimed her the Patroness of Americas and the Protectress of the Unborn Children, according to Wikipedia.

    People see what they want to see. Have you looked at the sky and seen images of animals or the like in the clouds? This is no different. I feel sorry for those people that are so desperate that they need see these false images in various different places.

      People who believe and have faith don’t consider these “false images” and I think it’s very rude of you to call them “desperate”. Have some consideration for other people’s beliefs. It’s a free country, remember?

      1. bdj says:

        I am not saying that can not believe in what they want. Yes this is a country where you are free to believe in your own faith. I just don’t think that a knot hole in a tree is the image they think it is. This is my opinion that I am free to have as well.

    Not what I see. To me it looks more like porn-star Katsumi getting a big, puffy red-one up the butt. No mistake about it.
