The myth is the story of how the chapel acquired its spiral staircase through the intervention of a mysterious white-bearded carpenter who came in answer to the sister's prayers. The author has tracked down the mystery. While St Joseph may not have been directly involved, a miracle of sorts did bring Santa Fe this lovely small Gothic structure with stained glass windows.
