Fire destroyed a family’s home but this Virgin Mary statue survived

The Rojas family in Robstown, Texas lost their three homes to a fire just as Hurricane Harvey was hitting the area. All three houses were destroyed by fire and as they looked around the remains they found an intact statue of the Virgin Mary in the ashes.


Natali Rojas says, ‘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 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 Rojas, Natali’s father.
