A statue of Mary that remained intact after Hurricane Ida is getting attention on social networks.
The photo was published by the Catholic parish of St. Hubert in Garyville, Louisiana, after the devastation caused by the category four hurricane, which left millions without power and caused the deaths of at least eighty people.
Along with the photo, the parish posted the following comment:
“In the midst of tree damage, Our Lady stood as protection for our village of Garyville. Not a branch touched her as they fell all around her. Thank you Mother Mary for interceding for us.”
Several people have commented on the post saying that images of Mary in their homes and gardens also withstood the hurricane intact. This, they claim, is a sign of Our Lady’s protection in critical situations.
Personally, I think it looks more like she was just looking out for herself.
