Santuary Our Lady of the Laus. After the solemn mass, in order to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Apparitions recognition, His Grace Monsignor Jean-michel di Falco-Leandri, Bishop of Gap and Embrun, will bless the monumental painting of Philippe Casanova, present on occasion.
Philippe Casanova, a french artist passionated by baroque and inspired by the Eternal City. I met again, after many years, Our Lady of Laus with emotion. It is a Havre de Grace, peace and quiet for the soul, in a symbiosis with nature, creation. In the city I have elected, the Holly city of Rome, I have, year after year, discovered the baroque. The architects and artists who made it so beautifull used to say: " il mondo piangente e il Cielo festeggiante": the world is crying, the Heaven is celebrating. Since this world is sinking into crisis and tribulations, the Heaven invite himself to inflame the hearth e celebrate the glory of Our Lady and of the humble rural Benoite, the one who guessed right."
