'Our Lady of the Rockies' stands 90' above the Continental Divide overlooking Butte, Montana, and is second only in size to the Statue of Liberty on Staten Island in New York. The wife of a devout Roman Catholic man became fatally ill. The man vowed that if his wife survived, he would erect a statue of the Virgin Mary in gratitude for sparing her. His wife healed completely; he kept his promise. This monument to his love and gratitude overlooks my hometown.
