Rising to the rear of the altar is a Venetian mosaic of our Blessed Lady as the Queen of All Saints. It is composed of more than thirty-three thousand pieces of glass and was executed at the Vatican galleries, according to an original drawing by Professor Lelio de Ranieri. Portrayed ascending out of a bank of clouds, she wears a cerulean blue cloak adorned with fleurs-de-lis.The title of the masterpiece is on a "scroll" of golden ribbon held by two life-size angels who stand beneath the mosaic - "Hail, Holy Queen."
