Long Description:
This statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary is located outside of the Church of the Good Shepherd on Sharon Road (Route 18) in the town of West Middlesex, Pennsylvania. The statue is the the southeast of the church building at a paved patio with four benches nearby. The statue depicts Our Lady with her arms outstretched and a rosary hanging from her side.

The Blessed Virgin Mary is venerated by Christians as the Mother of the Word Incarnate, Our Lord Jesus Christ. As a young girl betrothed to St. Joseph, Mary was visited by the angel Gabriel and told that she would conceive a son by the Holy Ghost, who would be the Son of God. In humble obedience to the divine messenger, Mary replied, "Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done to me according to thy word." In Bethlehem, her Son was born and was adored by shepherds and kings. As is known throughout the world, this Son, Jesus Christ, went on to suffer on the cross and rise again, offering salvation to the world through Him. Today, Mary is venerated as the Mother of God and Queen of Heaven.
