  A Virxen Peregrina
by DanielF

It is a well known fact that Saint Sebastian is the patron of Oldbridge. But not so many people know that the patronnes is Mary of the O. Actually, the fervent devotion that most Oldbridgeans profess for the Pilgrim Virgin easily leads to the false conviction that she is the real patroness.

It is undeniable, though, that the Pilgrim Virgin is one of the prettiest representations of Our Lady. Many people even define it as a porcellain doll. A cute one, with its pilgrim gown and walking stick.
