Looney Lunenburg

Mahone Bay Market

Several years ago we briefly visited the colorful village of Lunenberg, Nova Scotia. Charming and quirky, here are a few images from our time there – just in time for Halloween.

Who knows what madness lurks….

Yes, Prince Harry. It IS Canada after all.

All the guides were costumed for our tour. Great little town with a warm heart.

Feast of St. Francis of Assisi

Behind the monstrance (used to hold the Blessed Sacrament during Adoration) is a sculpture of St. Francis helping Christ down from the cross. I don’t know the artist that created this work but it is based on a painting by Bartolome Murillo in 1668. The broadest interpretation would be that St. Francis was seen by many as turning away from earthly things and embracing the suffering Christ. Who do we know that is suffering that could use a call, a card or a tender touch.
