|“Miracle on South Division Street” by Tom Dudzick finds the Nowak family performing their unique Christmas ritual of gathering at the old homestead to commemorate the family “miracle”.|
According to legend, on Christmas Eve in 1942, the Blessed Mother herself appeared to Grandpa in the family barbershop. Now Clara, the family matriarch, happily tends the family heirloom, a twenty-foot memorial shrine to the Virgin Mary which adjoins the house. During the course of a family meeting, the entire family’s faith is shaken to the vey core when a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel.
The results are heartfelt and hilarious!
