The following experience is from the pages of the Detroit Branch #1 history. Special thanks to Sister Rosanne Champine for sharing it with us. The experience was had by her father, Brother Tony Scolaro, and it’s told in his own words. We’re so happy to share it for today’s divine protection-themed Miracle Monday.
The Lord has given me many beautiful experiences in my life. One outstanding experience occurred while I was at work.
In February 1947, when I was employed as Assistant Manager at a branch of a large bank in Detroit, a bandit came in and demanded we fill a bag he had with money. “Large bills,” he said, and “Hurry, with no alarms, or you will all be dead!”
He held a paper bag, which he said contained a bottle of nitroglycerin, an explosive liquid, which he said would blow us all to kingdom come if he threw it on the floor.
In my efforts to stop him, I was able to grab the bottle out of his hand. The liquid spilled all over my hands and then all over the floor. The terrazzo floor immediately started to foam and became pocked and powdered, but, miraculously, it had no effect on my hands. Instead, it seemed to be just like water.
God had saved me from certain harm! The bandit was apprehended by the police and sentenced to prison for attempted robbery.
I cannot sufficiently thank the Lord for the many blessings He has bestowed upon me. I do not feel as though I have served Him. Indeed, He has served me!
