What!? Why is it that before video cameras and reliable recording the Saints had all the cool powers...er, I mean blessings. Does the Church hold that these flights and levitation truly occurred?

I guess you are uncomfortable with St. Francis of Assisi, and Thomas Aquinas.

The Church does not take an official position on any of these things, but the facts of the matter with St. Joseph of Cupertino and a few others like him are well-recorded.

Some are fairly recent. I believe St. Gemma Galgani levitated.

Anyway, with respect to video cameras -- I very much doubt that a skeptic would accept a video recording of someone levitating or flying.

Yea that's the main one I was talking about. He didn't just levitate or float, he actually flew through the air.

Who said levitation ended with the advent of motion picture photography?

I was at Osimo, Italy, the shrine of St. Joseph of Cupertino (San Giuseppe da Copertino).

If you Know Italian, visit the following site:

BTW, read up on St. Joseph of Cupertino and you'll see that, if it was a hoax, he gained absolutely nothing from it. His fellow Franciscans regarded him most the time as an embarrassment.

I would like that ability, I get tired of being paged to run to one side of the store, and then when I arrive, getting paged to run back to where I was.

St. Pio of Pietrelcina had the gift of bilocation:
