A carving on a tree that resembles the Virgin Mary is luring hundreds of believers and onlookers, who are finding hope and faith in the image that was discovered on Tuesday by a woman who was passing by.
Police barricades sectioned off the tree, which was surrounded by bouquets of flowers and burning candles, while residents studied the intricate bark.
Local woman Mary Alnodovar insists that it's a miracle: "I've been here for many years. I've never seen this before. And I always pass through here. Nothing happen like this. That's why I got surprised and I tell my friend, 'You got to go. You got to go and see.' It's not a lie. It's true what you see over there.”
