Our Lady of the Harbour

In Suzanne, the great song by Leonard Cohen, he refers to "Our Lady of the Harbour". Well, here she is, on top of the cathedral Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours, here in Montreal. Around the base (below) and on domes on either side are angels. Angels also figure prominently in that song, as well as other Cohen songs and poems.

(NB, this post will be referred to in an upcoming interview on the online PQ magazine.)
