According to the legend, 8 Jesuit missionaries survived the Hiroshima blast unscathed despite being within half a mile of ground zero in an area where no-one else survived. They attributed this to their faithful living of the message of Fatima and their telling of the Rosary.

This is one I had never heard about until I came across this debunking video. To save viewing the take away is that there were only 4 priests (the others were in a building behind a hill even further away than the 1,400 yards of the mission in question). The houses round the mission were totally destroyed but had not been given the double bracing against earthquakes that the mission had been given. The missionaries were not the sole survivors, there were over 2000 other survivors from the same area, and they were far from unscathed.
