SLEEPING ST. JOSEPH STATUE - 9"
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 9"L x 4 1/2"D x 2"H.
These unique statues are made in Colombia. Each one is individually hand-painted by talented women who are either widows, single mothers, or those who are sole providers for their families. Slight color and design variations may occur.
