    Background: In the Vatican gardens, July 14, Pope John 23 blessed a bronze statue of the Virgin--- later to be taken to the United States and placed at the highway crossing of White Plains, New York State, by local knights of the Columbus Organization.

    The statue was placed near the Grotto where the Pope prays daily. He was accompanied by members of the Vatican court, knights of the Columbus organizations, and the sculpture of the statue, Lumen Martin Winter.

    Kneeling before the statue, the Pope prayed, blessed the effigy and stayed a few minutes to chat with the group.

    The new trucks bringing the statue into the Vatican Gardens, had difficulty in negotiating the torturous hair-pin bends which make up the major part of the road inside the Vatican City.
