Fr. Gonzalo Mazarrasa, a Spanish priest, credits Saint Joseph for the survival of all passengers of a plane his brother Jaime was piloting in 1992 that split in two upon landing in Granada.
Mazarrasa, a seminarian at that time, was studying in Rome and had just completed 30 days of prayer to St. Joseph for “impossible things” when that same day his brother’s plane broke in half on the runway.
According to the local press, 26 of the 94 passengers were injured and no one was killed. The Spanish television program El Hormiguero called it "the miracle plane.”
In a recent article published on the Catholic social media Hozana, Mazarrasa told the story of the Aviaco Airlines McDonnell Douglas DC-9 “miracle plane” that greatly strengthened his devotion to Saint Joseph, the saint who “has great power before the Throne of God.”
In those days, the priest said, “I was studying in Rome in 1992 and residing at the Spanish College of Saint Joseph, which that year was celebrating its centenary.”
