Big Miracles, not Tall Tales
On the campus of Providence College in Rhode Island stands a bronze statue of St. Martin de Porres by the Dominican sculptor Fr. Thomas McGlynn. The statue captures the essence of the saintly Dominican cooperator brother with simplicity and realism. It is faithful to the reality of St. Martin, the embodiment of humility and piety, in every way except one: it stands at a towering 7’4”.
