Antonia "Toni" Filipertis, 84, of Lockport, NY, discovered images of the Virgin Mary in a maple tree outside her house. From the Niagara Gazette:
“The voice, she told me to look on your tree,” she related in a Polish accent. “I come out and parked the car in the front and I look on the tree and I don’t see nothing.”Link (via Fark)
Filipertis said that Mary’s voice was very soft. “She said, ‘Look at your tree. I’m in three places,’ and she was in three places .... And I look in this branch and she was very clear.”
Three stubs of three branches had pictures on them...
It is the second time members of the family have seen a vision. Twins James Filipertis and Dorothy (Filipertis) Fitzgerald saw the Holy Family – Mary, Joseph and Jesus – in the sky on a clear night in 1960 when they were 7 years old.
