Minnie McRae, who turns 105 on Tuesday, was the guest of honor at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church on Saturday, the television station reported.

McRae’s nephew, Arturo Ayala, flew from Germany to attend the party for a woman who taught him how to dance by giving him lessons in her living room, KSAT reported. 

Ayala said he believes he knows the secret to his aunt’s long life

"She's never shared it, but from my relationship with her, I see her always praying and ... always reading," Ayala told the television station. 

Ayala also said McRae was very spiritual and did work with Incarnate Word.

"She's a blessing and she's a miracle," Ayala told KSAT.
