Our Lady of Good Counsel
By Sr. Mary Elizabeth, CMRI, and Sr. Scholastica Therese, OSG

Miracle, or Wonder of Construction?
The Staircase of St. Joseph. When, in 1873, a chapel was built in Santa Fe for the Sisters of Loretto, it was discovered that the architect had forgotten to include plans for a stairway to reach the choir loft. Because of the height of the loft and the small size of the chapel, it was impossible to remedy the oversight with a conventional staircase. The Sisters prayed a novena to St. Joseph, and on the ninth day, an old man with a donkey stopped at the convent....
