When I was in the 3rd grade, we were living in Illinois when my father was transferred to a duty station on California. Before I left school, Sr. Mary Magdalene gave me this statue as a parting gift. She contained a large black rosary; the sort that nuns used to wear on their habits. The rosary is broken now but I still have part of it within the statue. she had kept me company now for 56 years.
