(To read other posts in the Prayer of St. Francis series so far, click here.) So when I visited this particular statue last week it struck me again how small he is. I have gotten used to seeing him in close up, but he's really a tiny statue on the grounds of St. Mary's Retreat House, maybe a couple of feet high.
For some reason I have a great fondness for this saint statue. I think it's perhaps the eyes and the way his hand is held out.
When I go for a walk in the gardens, I like to stop by and see how he's doing. Dirt has settled into various crevices but he has this marvelously expressive face.
So I thought I would share some more photos to put him in perspective for you.
Have you ever experienced things that are smaller -- or bigger -- than you remember?
