Quality of Life, People Making A Difference

This report from Fox news gives one pause…you will either pause to thank the Lord for this small miracle that will help the members of this destroyed church re-gather and rebuild…or it will give you pause to wonder if this really was the Lord’s work.  In either case, He made you stop and reflect and that is good!


In what parishioners are calling a miracle, a Bible pulled from the rubble of a church destroyed in a deadly East Harlem explosion last Wednesday has emerged unburned.   New York Firefighters uncovered the Bible Friday, finding blackened edges and pages covered in ash but every word was still legible.  The Bible is the original used by founders of the church which has served the neighborhood's Spanish community for 80 years.  Five of the church’s 60 parishioners died in the explosion. News of the recovered text gave the church’s pastor Rev. Thomas Perez heart palpitations and he was taken to the hospital as precaution.  Public Advocate Letitia James told the New York, “Through all of the rubble, through all of the destruction, his Book survived.”
