Have a look on my photos gallery….
With these few photos, I would like to share with you some good times I spent with all those people who trusted me and with whom we went to meet with Mary Magdalene, in the heart of the Sacred Feminine.
Prayers and connection to Nature
We are all seekers in the journey of Mary Magdalene as we walk in the world of life.
Connected to Nature, Mary Magdalene calls us to the inner life.
Around the table
I particularly like these convivial moments shared around the table. This is an opportunity to exchange and get to know one another better.
Pilgrimages in Camargue
Each year 3 pilgrimages take place in Camargue, in the city of Les Saintes Maries de la Mer.
Among them, the most famous and crowded is that of the Gypsies on May 24th. During these pilgrimages and for 2 days, we can see in the church the relics of the Saintes Maries Jacobé and Salomé descended from the High Chapel. There are processions with their relics and those of Sara, the Balck Madonna of the Gypsies, organized up to the sea, on the banks of the Mediterranean where the boat carrying Mary Magdalene and her companions landed on the first century of our era.
Provençal customs and traditions
As I explained when introducing myself, my family arrived in Provence from Italy in 1747.
I am particularly attached to my Provençal roots and I am committed to working for the maintenance of the traditions.
With my friends of the Association Santo Madaleno, we are in charge, among others, of the organization of St Mary Magdalene’ traditional feasts in July.
Thus, we perpetuate the traditions established by Charles II of Anjou, our Count of Provence discoverer of St Mary Magdalene’s relics, since the 14th century.
If you decide to come to St Maximin for the week of July 22, you could attend the parades, processions and various traditional events in the city.
You will also admire, on early Sunday morning, the traditional Provencal outfits that we wear for “Bravades”. Indeed, in old times, young men were responsible in the village to build armed civilian militia to protect and defend their Patron Saint.
