7 – The scapular that saved the man hit by a train
In the early twentieth century, in the American town of Ashtabula, Ohio, a man was seriously hit by a train. Instead of dying on the hour, however, he remained conscious for another 45 minutes-the time it took for a priest to arrive and minister to him the last sacraments.
No one understood how it was possible that, with such open wounds, he had not died immediately. The only explanation found was hanging around his neck: he wore the scapular.
