A little over a week ago, Fr. Doug Hayman was out walking his dog and took a swing by the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary about a block from his house.
He noticed someone had left a small statue of Our Lady on the lawn close to the front door. He had no idea where it had come from. Not long after that, he saw someone had moved the statue from the place on the lawn where some evidence of spray painting the base was left on the grass—not like crop circle, Fr. Hayman said—and the statue had been moved into a flower bed under the sign.
What a delightful gift! I hope she stays, but if the statue is on a little pilgrimage, we’re happy to have her as long as we can.
We’re having some renovation done on our front door, so that’s why the strange red and white paper to the right.
