Hmmm. :hmmm:

My first guess is :

St Gerard Majella

I thought St. Gerard Majella too. It might be St. Gabriel Possenti, though.

I think it’s St. Gerard, given the holy cards – look at the clothing, not just the objects. :slight_smile:

Sts. Gerard and Gabriel Possenti, orate pro nobis.

My vote is St. Gerard. St. Gabriel would most likely have the Passionist sign on his cassock.


#6

Yep, that’s St. Gerard Majella.

As the previous poster said, if it were St. Gabriel Possenti, it would show the Passionist symbol on his habit.

Hey, I recognize that statue! It’s made by “Florentine”! I used to work in a Catholic bookstore. Florentine was my favorite statue ‘brand’. They have really nice details.

Thanks for all the help.:slight_smile:

I found a website where they sell the statue.
archangelbooks.com/pages-productinfo/Catholicmerchandise-67_72/product-659/55-st-gerard-statue.html
I got it much cheaper …

St. Gerard Majella is my guess too.
Is it that they didn’t know, you don’t know or just if you wanted to see if we knew?


#10

I didn’t know.
