The statue of Our Lady was photographed outside of Our Lady of Victories Church. However, what I found to be remarkable is the beautiful blue eyes of the statue, which I payed no attention to while photographing the icon. It wasn't until I arrived at home and examined the photos that I recognized the beauty of the artwork. The statue does show some signs of aging with paint beginning to peel off in areas.The Catholic church is located on 100 Fair Street in Paterson, NJ, USA.

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent which prepares us for Holy Week and the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday. Lent is a time of fasting and prayer that leads to a spiritual renewal of our soul.
Miraculous Signs of Archangel Michael
"Please join in prayer for God's divine intervention to mitigate (end) violence throughout the world. It’s important now more than ever to pray for our nation and families, especially for people who are subjected to adversity and disrespectful behavior on a daily bases. Our world is in dire need of healing and peace - with prayer everything is possible." -Loci B. Lenar
