Miracles, I tell ya. They’re everywhere…

An image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was spared from a fire that left an entire parish in ashes in rubble.

The heroic staff emptied the water department hoses ..and put out the fire. The chapel was reduced to rubble and it was when they began to remove the charred remains that they discovered the “miracle”. The wooden box [frame] with the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe was burned minimally, while the altar wall that held it was destroyed by fire. Also, the image of the patron saint was turned to ashes. “It’s a miracle. She, our mother is telling us that wants to build it back home, “said Marlene.

    She’s sort of notorious for that. OL Guadalupe (the actual image on the tilma) survived a bomb-blast! She’s my favorite Marian apparition for sure!
