Virgins of Stone

If you care to notice when walking in San Miguel de Allende, you’ll find Virgins around every corner…

This one, resting in her private niche, adorns an antiquated doorway.

And this one, ever so pure, watches over a loved one who has come to rest under her eternal protection.

The Blessed Mother Mary in all her many forms,
holds the sanctity of our lives in her hands…always.
