St. Dominic

The white marble statue of St. Dominic (August 8, 1170 – August 6, 1221) in the Calvary Cemetery in Erie, Pennsylvania, portrays a prayerful monk holding a book in one hand with the word “VERITAS” carved on the front and holding a cross in the other.  The statue also displays the Rosary, which St. Dominic helped to popularize through his preaching.

St. Dominic is the Patron Saint of astronomers.
