So, I'm thinking, miracles can be elusive... akin to one of my favorite song from the 60's, "Butterfly of Love."
How to relate? Right here, right now? I'll borrow from childhood:
Growing up just outside Santa Fe, New Mexico, I was all too familiar with the infamous Loretto Staircase. Yes, that's a sigh ….. remembering the sheer boredom I felt every time my parents felt compelled to parade out-of-town family and friends to that Chapel.
Only now – decades removed from “The City Different” can I appreciate it's history and charm.
One reviewer has written:
Architects will tell you it should have crashed the moment someone set foot on it.
Scientists say it defies the laws of gravity.
But the Sisters of Loretto know: It was a miracle.
If you've not had an opportunity to see it personally, you may enjoy this moving depiction. (Please, don't forget to "mute" my playlist, below.)
