Anyone have info on miracle of the cross at the Mission?

I heard a story that there was a priest at the mission 200 years ago. He was seen to levitate and the Christ on the cross was said to have come down off the cross and embraced this priest. I think his name might have been Calva or Montcalva. Something like that. Anybody ever heard this story? Mighuel

I think you mean Padre Magín Catalá, OFM, also known as The Holy Man of Santa Clara. If you do a search on Google, you can find articles about this story. The crucifix is still in the Mission, which is on the campus of Santa Clara University.

Glad I could help. The mission is quite beautiful and is unusual because it's still a functioning parish church.
