Photos from our recent trip to Santa Fe, NM. These are of Loretto Chapel which has the Miraculous Staircase. This staircase has a mystery to it has it is said to be built without nails by a carpenter who showed up after the sisters of the chapel prayed for 9 days. It took several months to be built by this carpenter who then left without pay and could not be found. The sisters believe it was St. Joseph himself that built the staircase and answered their prayers.
