God works in mysterious ways — and, in the case of one Italian town, miraculous ones.
According to the Daily Mail, Italy's Valle Spluga recently experienced nearly 2.5 inches rain in a single 24-hour period, resulting in a landslide which dropped an amazing 264,860 cubic feet of rock onto the land below - right on top of the Santuario di Gallivaggio, a 420-year-old church.
But while it might look like the church was engulfed in debris, the Santuario di Gallivaggio emerged, amazingly, mostly unscathed. The fact that the church is still standing is incredible, considering that it was directly in the path of the landslide.
Take a look:
According to the Daily Mail, Priest Don Andrea Caelli told the local news website that the “hand of God” played a role in the survival of the church.
“As a believer I say that the provident hand of God accompanied this event which could have ended tragically,” Caelli said.
God certainly does work in mysterious ways, and we’re glad He did in this case.
