Spires and statues of angels look out over fields of smashed houses and twisted typhoon debris.<p>In Tacloban, the typhoon ripped the roof off the once-stately Santo Nino Catholic Church. There's still mud in among the pews, and one of the large stained-glass windows hangs precariously from its frame above the congregation.
