Miracle In Spokane, WA. Church leaders rejoice

Just days after a court ruling threatened to bankrupt the diocese of Spokane, Church leaders say that their prayers were answered. "God told us to look at our figures again and we discovered that the diocese may have $57.5 million available without selling any church property" said one church leader. That’s double the initial estimate.

Last week's court decision, in response to the Diocese's claim that it didn't have enough money to pay jury awards to victims of priestly child sex abuse, ruled that the church property wasn't owned by the individual parishes, as church leaders claimed, but by the Diocese. The court ordered the properties onto the auction block to make up the shortfall.
