Clothed with the sun

Last night, a friend and I discovered that my parish church, a beautiful old structure which has been long wreckovated and stripped of most statuary, keeps a pair of beautiful old statues — the Immaculata and St. Bernadette Joan  — in its parking lot.

Today I went back there to pray and took some cell phone snaps. My phone's no-frills camera couldn't take the sunlight — hence the black dot in the second photo — but there was something about these that I thought was worth sharing. I couldn't tell how they would come out when I was taking them, because the sun was so bright.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
