Group Prays Nightly At Statue Of St. Louis

The statue of Saint Louis sits in front of the Art Museum on Art Hill in Forest Park, in St. Louis on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. The St. Louis Forever Rosary Coalition has been meeting at the statue for the last several nights to pray that the statue remains and that the city of St. Louis will remain peaceful. A petition has been started to remove the statue that has stood in place for over 100 years. To some, King Saint Louis is known as someone who persecuted the Jewish people of France, confiscated and burned the Talmud. Photo by Bill Greenblatt/UPI
