Robert LeRoe tells this story: When I was stationed in Frankfurt, Germany, I often reported to V Corps Headquarters, which was located in the historic Abrams Bldg. To get upstairs there were two options-either take the stairs, or the Paternoster, a very unusual elevator. There were no doors, only an opening, and the elevator never stopped; it just slowly went up and down and you had to hop on.

Many people took the stairs. The name Paternoster is Latin, translated "Our Father", another way of referring to the Lord’s Prayer. I could only surmise that if you took that elevator you did some praying!
