A Catholic couple who lost their home in a historic Colorado wildfire late last year say they have experienced “absolutely heroic virtue” from their neighbors, as they and thousands of others reel from the complete loss of their homes.
“Many blessings every day have helped us see the glory of God in this devastating time,” Tom Greany told CNA in emailed responses to questions.
“Our Catholic friends have almost all reached out with offers to help…Those who took it upon themselves to purchase and deliver items without asking taught me a great lesson in giving.”
The Greany home was destroyed by the Marshall Fire on Dec. 30, with only a statue of Mary left standing. The fire destroyed at least 991 homes and businesses and damaged about 125 more structures, the Colorado Sun reported Wednesday. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
