Marial exposition at Château-Richer

31/05/2006: Canada

At Château-Richer, a magnificent Marial exposition was inaugurated at the beginning of the month of Mary on the 1st May 2006. This exposition is directed at anyone interested in Mary and Marist patrimony. It will last until the 15th August of this year.

The initiator of this exposition is none other than Brother Paul-André Lavoie, whose artistic taste and his talents as an organiser are well known. A missionary for many years in Cameroon, Paul-André is presently responsible for Marist patrimony in our Province. He voluntarily acts as guide and information person for all the groups who come to this rather exceptional exposition.

The theme chosen for this Marial Exposition is “Mary, through the ages and art”. Looking at numerous specimens, one can see the representation of Mary in the statuary and iconography (from the icon of Our Lady of the Gate to Our Lady of Availability). One can have an idea of the evolution of Marial worship through the centuries, in the Byzantine liturgy and notably with our orthodox brothers. As to Marial thought, one can note this in the various Marial writings in books or magazines. One can consult, for example, all the Marial albums, artistically illustrated, of our famous Mariologist Roger Brien. These albums were circulated around the Marial year 1954. Obviously, all of our own Marist Marial patrimony (objects or writings) also finds its place in this temporary summer exposition.
