Santa Clara, CA 2017
Surprises are one of the very best things about traveling. While staying at the Avatar hotel in Santa Clara, CA, I stumbled across a 32’ stainless steel statue of the Virgin Mary (the Shrine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, or the Awesome Madonna) at Our Lady of Peace. She looks down upon visitors, believers and non-believers alike, with open, welcoming arms.
