|Viva Santa Fortunata!|
To commemorate the occasion I'm posting a Prayer to Santa Fortunata.* The accompanying photos were taken at the Società Santa Fortunata di New York clubhouse (7702 17th Avenue) in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Above is the original society statue, dating from around August, 1900. Too fragile to carry anymore, the society commissioned a new statue (pictured below) in 2000 for their annual Processions.
