Family credits Virgin Mary statue for saving their house from wildfire (2011)
Garcia discovered this after he returned home for the first time after four days, and thanked the Blessed Virgin Mary. “She protected our home, everybody’s homes. We prayed to it before we left to protect everybody’s homes,” he told CNN, pointing toward the statue outside his house.
Note that statues are just a visual reminder and that Catholics do not pray to the statues themselves but to the Saints in Heaven whom the statues represent.
