When I arrived one evening at a suburban Chicago parish to conduct an apologetics seminar, I noticed a life-sized statue of Our Lady of Fatima on the rectory lawn.  Kneeling before that statue were three smaller statues of Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta – the children to whom Our Lady appeared.  Their statues were kneeling in prayer, heads bowed before the larger statue.  Turning to my colleague in the car, I joked, “What a great religion Catholicism is.  Not only can we worship statues, but our statues can worship statues.”
