VDLR parish to host Marian exhibit in October

THE Virgen Delos Remedios Parish in Santa Rita, through its Ministry on Popular Devotion, will exhibit some 20 images of the Virgin Mary in commemoration of the Rosary Month in October.

The exhibit will feature the images of Mary under the titles and honors accorded by the Roman Catholic Church and the people and communities all over the world from October 20 to 27.

The images range from the events in the life of Mary, both from the Bible and Roman Catholic tradition, as well as popular titles and representations unique to the Philippines.

The Ministry on Popular Devotion, in a statement, said the exhibit will run in the last days of October and will be capped a "living rosary" event.

Marian images will be taken in from different religious art enthusiasts from the different barangays in Santa Rita and neighboring parishes in Guagua, Sasmuan, Lubao and Bacolor.

The event is a yearly occasion for people to relearn the values and lessons from the life of Mary.

The ministry said the event is not just a religious activity but also an art exhibit of the best Marian images, as well as of the craftsmanship and artistry of local artists and craftsmen that executed them.

"Religious iconography is also an art form. It is one of the ways that people show their respect for what they believe in," the ministry added.
