Notre Dame de Lorette church is undergoing some much needed restoration as you can see by the wall behind this lovely statue of Saint Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus, the patron saint of missions. Pope Pius XI considered her the "star of his pontificate". She died at the age of 24 and is thought to be one of the greatest saints of the 20th century. I love the simplicity of this beautiful piece of sculpture.

Today is Theme Day for the City Daily Photo bloggers around the world. The theme this month is STATUES. I thought I'd join in on this blog and feature one of my favorite statues in all of the churches I've visited in France.
