SAUGUS , Mass., May 12 (UPI) -- A rolling stone stopped inches short of crashing into a Massachusetts church, in what some people might call a minor miracle.

A construction explosion in Saugus caused a large boulder to come loose and almost roll into Grace Ministries Church.

"If it rolled another 12 inches, it would have gone right through the building," Pastor Rick LeClair told WCVB. "This boulder was probably 20 tons."

LeClair saw the boulder coming, but he kept faith that the church would be saved.

"We were standing across the street saying, 'Uh-oh. There it goes,'" LeClair said. "I was thinking the church was going to get wrecked, but I had this peace about me where it really wasn't going to get wrecked. And it didn't. The Lord just kinda said, 'That's enough.'"

Grace Ministries has a food pantry that feeds thousands, which would likely have been shut down if the boulder had hit the church.
