It's being referred to as a case of divine intervention — and after you see the video, you may just agree.
Footage uploaded to YouTube Friday shows a giant boulder stop just inches from rolling through a Massachusetts church.

"If it rolled another 12 inches, it would have gone right through the building," Pastor Rick LeClair told WCVB-TV. "This boulder was probably 20 tons."
According to the local ABC affiliate, the boulder was set off by a nearby construction blast.
"We were standing across the street saying, 'Uh-oh. There it goes,'" LeClair recounted. "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 pastor credits divine intervention for stopping the rock.
"The Lord just kinda said, 'That's enough,'" LeClair told WCVB.
