This polychrome marble statue of the saint is in St. Vincent Ferrer Church in New York City. The saint holds a book saying: “Fear God for the hour of judgement is coming.”

St. Vincent was one of the greatest preachers of the Order, converting tens of thousands of Muslims and Jews to the Faith in the universal Saviour, Jesus Christ.
