Grace of God: Tornado destroys Texas Catholic church—but statue of Mary survives

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 04/30/17

The video here, from CNN, is remarkable for a number of reasons—including the dignity the newscaster shows the church and its parishioners. (It’s also one of the few times I’ve heard a reporter use the verb “celebrate” with Mass; usually reporters talk about how people “attend” Mass or “hear” Mass.)
