Stairway from Heaven

Posted on

City of Santa Fé, in New Mexico, USA. A mystery of over 130 years and attracting around 250,000 visitors every year.  Point of attention: Loretto Chapel.

spiral staircaseWhat makes this chapel different from all others is that the subject of the supposed miracle that took place in it is a staircase?

A chapel was constructed somewhere in the 19th century. When it was ready, the nuns found that there was no staircase built to take them to the top level.  They spent 9 days praying to St. Joseph, who was a carpenter.

On the last day, a stranger knocked at their door and said that he was a carpenter who could help them build the staircase.  He constructed the staircase, all by himself, which was considered to be the pride of carpentery.  None knew how the staircase could stand by itself as it did not have a central support.

Then the carpenter, who did not use a single nail or glue to construct this staircase, disappeared without even waiting for his payment.

Claim:

“The spiral stairway at Santa Fe’s Loretto Chapel miraculously stands despite having no discernable means of support”. thinker 5
