Mary Immaculate of Lourdes Bulletin for the week of March 4, 2012

Bulletin: MaryImmaculate-2012-03-04.pdf

Front Cover: “Mass in a Connemara Cabin,” by Aloysius O’Kelly, A.D. 1883.  This painting conveys the simplicity and tenacity of the Catholic faith in Ireland.  The west of Ireland suffered most heavily from the Great Famine of 1845-1847 and the “Land War” in the latter decades of the 1800s.  This particular painting had been considered lost since 1895 and was only re-discovered a few years ago in a rectory in Edinburgh, Scotland.  The painting is part of an exhibit on Rural Ireland now on display at the McMullen Art Museum, Boston College.
