Earthquake destroyed all of Norcia’s churches

November 02, 2016

All of the churches in St. Benedict’s birthplace of Norcia (Nursia), Italy, were destroyed by the October 30 earthquake that leveled the medieval Basilica of St. Benedict.

“All the churches in Norcia are on the ground,” according to the Benedictine monks of Norcia. “Every single one. The roofs caved in on all of them; they are no more. The wonder, the miracle, is that there were no casualties.”
