In a Time of Miracles

“ Never to suffer would never to have been blessed. ”

― Edgar Allan Poe

A fire destroyed a church in Juárez early Wednesday morning, but spared a Virgin of Guadalupe image, despite the fierce blaze, Juárez officials said today.
 "The fire tore down the whole church," said Cap. Martin Morales, of the Fire Department in Juárez, in a telephone interview.

But the fire spared a Virgin of Guadalupe image inside the church. The beloved icon, 60 centimeters tall and one meter wide, was framed in wood.

"We had no explanation of that," Matamoros said. "The image had no protection at all." The fire also destroyed 40 pews, frames and several icons.

That's amazing, Mo. Just like during the horrible Holocaust, many religious artifacts were somehow spared. I'm glad the Virgin of Guadalupe picture survived the fire. Praise the Lord. Susan
