Ron Sattler kneels and prays in front of the altar in Canton, Ohio. Late in the summer of 1939, crowds of strangers started showing up at Rhoda Wise’s house next to a city dump in Ohio after she let it be known that miracles were occurring in her room. Eight decades later, people still make pilgrimages to the wood-frame bungalow at the edge of Canton, seeking their own miracles.
The 1940s rose petal, a piece of stigmatic clothes from a wound when she bled and a piece of Rhoda Wise’s dress are held up in Canton, Ohio.
