Sacred Relics Rescued from Church Fire

 Tuesday, September 23, 2014


Divine providence. A priest says that’s what led a newspaper delivery driver to spot and save a burning church Tuesday morning. Her 911 call got firefighters there in time to save something extraordinary inside.
Carol Dyer started driving her paper route late, in another part of town. But she says something steered her to Riviere Road, right past St. Raphael Greek Orthodox Church. "It was the Holy Spirit of God. Point blank," Dyer told me. "I started doing that neighborhood down there, and I just felt a grinding in my spirit. It wasn’t right... I needed to do this section up here."
