The Catholic Church's hierarchy in Ireland also feels dubious about the tree stump, according to Limerick diocese spokesman Fr Paul Finnerty.
"The Church's response to phenomena of this type is one of great scepticism," he said.
"While we do not wish in any way to detract from devotion to Our Lady, we would also wish to avoid anything which might lead to superstition."
WTF! So they'll be closing down their churches and making priests, etc. redundant?
