SLEEPING SAINT JOSEPH STATUE
Pope Francis has explained that he has a great love for St. Joseph because he is a man of silence and strength. On the Pope's table he has a statue of St. Joseph sleeping and he says, "Even when he is asleep, he is taking care of the Church!" Pope Francis suggests that people leave a "note" under the image of the saint for help whenever they have a problem. This replica of that statue is hand-painted with gold accents and measures 12½”L x 6"D x 3"H.
These statues come from Colombia, S.A. and are meticulously hand-painted by a group of widows that have lost their husbands due to the violence occurring in Colombia.
