Never Say Never, a St. Padre Pio Miracle

Paul Walsh was 17 when the car he was driving hit a tree on Chester Pike in suburban Philadelphia on an icy December night in 1983.

It went right into the National Catholic Welfare Conference office which years later would become the United States Catholic  Conference of Bishops, (USCCB). 
During the rescue mission, the lines of one of the elevator cables snapped causing a young women elevator operator to fall down 75 flights. She survived.
