Listers, St. Peter’s List has teamed up with the New Jersey based Proud Catholic Company to bring you a graphic of the “Virgin of Breezy Point” – the statue of Our Lady of Grace that was left standing amongst the burnt rubble after hurricane Sandy.1 The statue rose to prominence after several photos of the lone statue went viral.
Both St. Peter’s List and Proud Catholic Company pray that the graphic will preserve and channel the hope that the statue has given those affected by hurricane Sandy. Please remember to continue to give to Catholic Charities as many people are still relying on the aid of the Church. SPL hopes to contribute to the relief efforts by soon offering the graphic on merchandise in the SPL Store.
- Virgin of Breezy Point: The title is a cultural one that has arisen from news stories and the name of the neighborhood in Queens. It is not an officially declared title and the statue itself and the graphic both depict Our Lady of Grace. [↩]
