Miracle? Fire destroys church in, but crucifix is discovered intact

San Jose – “The morning after the spectacular fire, the Rev. Firmo Mantovani and bleary-eyed members of his parish were stunned by the wondrous sight inside the burned out shell of Holy Cross Catholic Church… the heavy, 10-foot-tall, Italian-made gilded wooden crucifix that somehow survived the four-alarm fire Sunday afternoon. [They] figured the crucifix and everything else inside the century-old church had been incinerated.” (+)
