{ALL SAINTS DAY | ALL SOULS DAY}

November 1st is ALL SAINTS DAY for the Catholic Church. November 2nd is ALL SOULS DAY... We remember our loved ones that have passed on and our thoughts are with them. Because of hurricane Sandy, we lost many more lives here in the USA. Our sunny days from last week have vanished as it is windy and nippy now. So many people are still without power... We need to keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
This is a very peaceful French etching done on silver plated metal by L. Bottini after a tableau of the famous Murillo.
We keep this in our living room on the windowsill of the arched window.
Above is a photo I took and below you find a scan...
It represents the Immaculate Conception.
Let us pray to our Heavenly Mother for guidance during difficult times.

  7. Liebe Mariette,
    ein schöner Post und eine wundervolle Gravur. Ich bin immer noch schockiert über das Ausmaß an Schäden, das Sandy hinterlassen hat. Es sieht auch wie nach einem Krieg. Wie übermächtig die Natur ist, wo wir Menschen uns doch einbilden, alles zu beherrschen. Es tut mir so leid für all die Menschen, die ihre Angehörigen oder ihr Heim verloren haben.
    Liebe Grüße, Johanna

  14. The Indian lady who takes care of the front office at school was just telling me the other day about how they go to church to celebrate All Saints and All Souls Day. I'm not Catholic so had not heard of these days before. The silver etching is beautiful. Best wishes, Tammy
