Statue of St James the Greater at St James Catholic Church - Tupelo Mississippi

Our parish in Tupelo has the Apostle St James the Greater as our patron saint.  Many of us did not realize how he is depicted in the statue in the vestibule of our church as St James the pilgrim, holding a pilgrim's staff, carrying the gourd of water, and having a shell on his pilgrim's cape.  May the prayers and intercessions of St James guide and lead us on our own pilgrimage journey.
