  3. 3. A chapel was constructedsomewhere in hte 19th century. When it was ready, the nuns found that there was no staircase built to take them to the top level
  4. 4. They spent 9 days praying to St. Joseph, who was a carpenter.
  5. 5. On the last day, a stranger knockedat their door and said that he was acarpenter who could help them build the staircase.
  6. 6. He constructed thestaircase, all by himself,which was considered to be the pride of carpentery.
  7. 7. None knew how the staircasecould stand by itself as it did not have a central support.
  8. 8. Then the carpenter, who did not usea single nail or glue to construct thisstaircase, disappeared without even waiting for his payment.
  9. 9. There was a rumour in the city ofSanta Fé, that the carpenter was St. Joseph himself ...
  10. 10. ...sent by Jesus Christ to attendto the nuns’ problem. Since then, the staircase was known to be called “miraculous” and turnedout to be the site for pilgrimage.
  11. 11. There are 3 mysteries in thiscase, says the spokesman of the chapel : the 1st mystery is that, until today, the identity of this man is not known.
  12. 12. The second mystery – all the architects, engineers andscientists say that they cannotunderstand how this staircase can balance without any central support.
  13. 13. And the 3rd mystery – from where did the wood come? They havechecked and found out that the typeof wood used to build the staircase does not exist in the entire region
  14. 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
