|Here's the most recent statue of Our Lady that I encountered while on vacation!|
My head always seems to turn and notice them seconds before they'd be out of sight. It doesn't matter if we're going 25 miles per hour or 45; I catch 'em!
I would say that, in a given week, I probably see 12-15 statues of Mary. And this frequency continues even if I'm traveling through an area I don't know. That is what makes it particularly noticeable. How do my eyes know where to look if I've never been here before? Amazing.
When I see a statue of the Blessed Mother, I pause and take a moment to pray for someone in my life. Clearly, Jesus' Mother is asking me to keep praying!! Otherwise, I'm sure I wouldn't catch seeing so many statues of her!
Since I always have my camera with me, I ought to start saving photographs of the statues of Mary that I encounter. And wouldn't that make a fun book to publish and keep out on a coffee table? I think so!
Maybe I ought to consider it...
