6 Saints who could fly

SAINT JOSEPH OF CUPERTINO

Philip Kosloski - published on 08/04/18

Through the divine power of God, these holy saints could defy the laws of gravity.

Being the creator and sustainer of the universe, God has the power to bend the rules every once and a while. This happened throughout the Bible and continues to this very day.

In particular, sometimes the holiness of an individual will be so great that God will work countless miracles through them. On occasion this takes the form of a supernatural phenomenon that has become the subject of science fiction.

Throughout history there have been many saints who were lifted up off the ground by God’s divine hand, making it appear to others that they could fly. These saints did not ask for this gift and saw it more as a cross to bear than a special ability.

Here are six such saints who, during their life on earth, were beacons of such holiness that it was sometimes revealed in their supernatural ability to levitate.
