A Catholic church has been brought to shambles following an air raid in World War II Italy. Large pieces of stone lay in front of an intricately-carved sculpture of angels, which was somehow able to avoid destruction. An angel and several cherubs are seen flying above a man dressed in robes, and a small plaque is also placed at the bottom of the sculpture. Perhaps the miraculous preservation of this sculpture represents God's incredible power and its many mysteries.
