Transcript

  • 1. City of Santa Fé, in New Mexico, USA. A mystery of over 130 years and attracting around 250 thousand visitors every year. Point of attention : Loretto Chapel
  • 2. What makes this chapel different from all others is that the subject of the supposed miracle that took place in it is a Staircase
  • 3. A chapel was constructed somewhere in hte 19 th century. When it was ready, the nuns found that there was no staircase built to take them to the top level
  • 4. They spent 9 days praying to St. Joseph, who was a carpenter.
  • 5. On the last day, a stranger knocked at their door and said that he was a carpenter who could help them build the staircase.
  • 6. He constructed the staircase, all by himself, which was considered to be the pride of carpentery.
  • 7. None knew how the staircase could stand by itself as it did not have a central support.
  • 8. Then the carpenter, who did not use a single nail or glue to construct this staircase, disappeared without even waiting for his payment.
  • 9. There was a rumour in the city of Santa Fé, that the carpenter was St. Joseph himself ...
  • 10. ...sent by Jesus Christ to attend to the nuns’ problem. Since then, the staircase was known to be called “miraculous” and turned out to be the site for pilgrimage.
  • 11. There are 3 mysteries in this case, says the spokesman of the chapel : the 1 st mystery is that, until today, the identity of this man is not known.
  • 12. The second mystery – all the architects, engineers and scientists say that they cannot understand how this staircase can balance without any central support.
  • 13. And the 3 rd mystery – from where did the wood come? They have checked and found out that the type of wood used to build the staircase does not exist in the entire region
  • 14. There is another detail that has just increased the belief in the supposed miracle : The staircase has 33 steps, the age of Jesus Christ. M. Gallo
