David Jimenez prayed regularly to a large crucifix outside the Church of St. Patrick in Newburgh, N.Y., based on his belief the crucifix was responsible for curing his wife’s cancer. He even got permission from the church to spruce up the structure, as befit its power. While clearning it, the 600-pound crucifix came loose and fell on Jimenez’s leg, which had to be amputated. Jimenez’s $3 million litigation against the archdiocese goes to trial in January.
