Madonna Our Lady of Smiles religious Statue in White - Veronese Collection
Our Lady Smiles is such a beautiful religious figure.
On May 13, 1883, Our Lady of the Smile healed St. Therese of the Child Jesus when she was bedridden. On that day, St. Therese turned her head to a statue of the Virgin near her bed and prayed for a cure. “Suddenly,” Therese writes, “Mary's face radiated kindness and love.” Therese was healed.
The statue has since been called “Our Lady of the Smile.”
