Holy Cross Catholic Church in San Jose, California was gutted by fire on Saturday, but somehow this beautiful ornate Italian crucifix, ten feet tall, managed to escape damage:

God bless the firefighters for treating this symbol of our Faith with such respect and care.  Would that similar care would have been taken during the orgy of destruction that afflicted so many treasures of art and great symbols of our Faith during the wild excesses of the post-conciliar period.

The video at this link will give you an idea of the extent of the damage.

Given the extent of the blaze it is miraculous that the crucifix survived.  It certainly appears the entire interior of the parish was consumed.

Truly this was a miracle and sign from God!

Maybe symbolizes that the True Faith stands unscathed amidst the current demolition and destruction of the Faith?
