Mary’s Comforting Presence
The Our Lady of Refuge Figurine is a fantastic Christian gift for anyone looking to spread the joy of faith and trust in Mary. Mary has long been a refuge for Christians, and for anyone looking to give a gift of Mary, this figurine is consistently among our most popular representations of Mary. This specific representation dates back to the 13th century, during the days of the Plague. At the time, anyone who found shelter under the cloak of a king or queen was free from prosecution. Our Lady of Refuge is a similar idea: find comfort, hope, and peace from the buffeting winds of life through your trust in Mary.
