Additional Details:
The "Scala Sancta" of the Lourdes of America. 2511 Bronxwood Ave. The "Scala Sancta," at Rome, consists of 28 white marble steps. According to the tradition, this staircase once led to the Praetorium of Pilate at Jerusalem, hence sanctified by the footsteps of Our Lord during his Passion. An imitation of the "Scala Santa" has been erected in the Lourdes of France, and now another one has been erected in the Lourdes of America. It is the most beautiful "Scala Sancta" ever built and more than 50 thousands people visit this wonderful shrine every week.
