People Worship Weeping Tree In California, Tears Are Actually Insect Excrement
A growing number of Catholics in Fresno, California believe that a tree outside St. John’s Cathedral is weeping God’s tears. “When you say ‘glory be to God in Jesus’ name’ the tree starts throwing out more water,” parishioner Maria Ybarra told KGPE-TV. As news spread, more and more people gathered under the tree to pray. Fresno arborist Jon Reelhorn told KGPE-TV that there’s a scientific explanation for the falling liquid… the excrement of insects known as aphides or tree lice.
