Saint levitating


Ref: 1095/TGH

St Joseph of Copertino (1603-63) was said to be literally able to fly, as many eye-witnesses testified. He would fly up to 7 or 8 feet to kiss the statue of the Infant Jesus over the altar of his church in Italy, and would also sometimes fly round with the wax image in his arms.
