Parishioners of a San Jose Catholic church destroyed by a huge fire last Sunday are calling it a miracle that both the church’s crucifix and Virgin Mary statue both somehow survived the inferno relatively unscathed.
The ornate crucifix of Holy Cross Catholic Church appeared to not even have any soot or singe marks, even as the rest of the church’s interior was in ruins.
The beloved Mary statue, the Virgin of Guadalupe, was also intact.
Devastated parishioners were elated after the discovery, saying it was a sign from above.
“It’s like a miracle to give us hope that it’s still there and we can rebuild,” said Cecilia Rodriguez.
