Hurricane Harvey is the worst hurricane to hit the continental United States in over a decade, leaving devastation in its wake.

But amidst the tragedy, stories of hope have emerged.

The Rojas family of Robstown, TX lost everything to a fire caused by the hurricane. But when they returned to survey the wreckage, they were surprised by what they found: the only things that had survived the destruction were two statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The first was a fairly large statue that you can see in the photo above. The second was a small hand-sized statue one of the family members found.

“Some may blame God and some may blame the hurricane,” Natali Rojas told KRISTV, “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.”

Here’s the full news report:

Mother Mary, please pray for all those affected by Hurricane Harvey!
