The Pardon at St Anne la Palud

I was invited to attend the Pardon at St. Anne la Palud in France where St. Anne, the Virgin Mary’s mother, is patron saint of Brittany.

Gauguin joined many famous Breton artists in painting this beautiful tribute. At St. Anne la Palud this year a visiting bishop of Notre Dame in Paris joins the thousands in procession up the hill to pardon the earth and the sea.
