Home religion After Fire and Flood, All that Remained was a Virgin Mary Statue

After Fire and Flood, All that Remained was a Virgin Mary Statue

As Hurricane Harvey hit Robstown (west of Corpus Christi) a fire broke out that destroyed the property of the Rojas family. When they returned, all three houses on the property had literally been burnt to ashes…except for one thing.
All that remained was a statuette of the …intact! Virgin Mary
Natali Rojas told CNN “Some may blame God and some may blame the hurricane but the only thing standing were holy things,” “As you can see this statue is the only thing that survived. I dug in there for things and all I found is a Virgin Mary.”
The Robstown fire department had bravely been battling the many fires even as the storm raged, they kept at it, and without their dedication, who knows what lives may have been lost.
The Rojas family thanked the Robstown Fire Dept.: “I wanna thank the Fire Department of Robstown for courage to show up in the storm while the tremendous power, the wind, the rain were going and they were still out here trying their best. It was incredible.”

It wasn’t just wind and rain that caused damage when Hurricane Harvey blasted through the Texas coast. Fires did their share too.

A family in Robstown, just west of Corpus Christi, lost their homes to a fire just as Harvey was hitting the area. The Rojas family had evacuated their three houses on property they own. They returned to a distressing sight: all three houses destroyed by fire.
But they also found something in the ashes that they say gave them hope — an intact statue of the Virgin Mary.
“Some may blame God and some may blame the hurricane but the only thing standing were holy things,” Natali Rojas told CNN affiliate KRIS. “As you can see this statue is the only thing that survived. I dug in there for things and all I found is a Virgin Mary.”
The family said the Robstown Fire Department battled the flames even as the hurricane raged.
“I wanna thank the Fire Department of Robstown for courage to show up in the storm while the tremendous power, the wind, the rain were going and they were still out here trying their best. It was incredible,” said Jesus Rojas, Natali Rojas’ father.
The family is taking the statue’s survival as a sign that they can make it, too.
“Appreciate what you have, listen to the warnings, hug your children and thank God for today and yesterday, and pray for a better tomorrow,” Natali Rojas said.
