Description

Statue of St. Mary with a large heart on her chest and a rosary in her outstrechted hands, looking upwards to the statue of Cristo Rei . On the base in six languages a quote from St. John about the Wedding of Cana: "On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, 'They have no wine.' And Jesus said to her, 'Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.' His mother said to the servants, 'Do whatever he tells you.'
