Behold ?

During a recent storm around the 22 May, a branch broke away from a tree opposite a church in Allerton, Liverpool. 

This picture is offered for what it is.  Some people see an image of Mary others see a scar on the trunk of a tree.  What do you think ?

There is a story attached to the event but I somehow  feel its a bit of an urban myth.  Besides, what would the Mother of God be doing hiding in trees in an affluent suburb of Liverpool ?

Margery Kempe, English Mystic c1373-1458

Margery's story is so relevant today. We need more Margery's in todays world.  More mystics and less 'saints'.
