Picturing Mary

BVM H/T to Brother John

Hawaii wasn't on the list for showing. Hopefully, you will find it showing in your area.

PICTURING MARY

Picturing Mary is a stunning new, high-definition documentary to debut December 2006 on public television. It explores how images of the Virgin Mary reflect numerous traditions, devotional practices, and cultures. The one-hour program leads viewers on a pictorial journey through history from earliest Christian times to the present day. It presents a fascinating array of art from twelve locations in eight different countries.

The documentary is a joint effort of the United States conference of Catholic Bishops’ Catholic Communication Campaign and New York Public Television station Thirteen/WNET. The program is narrated by actress Jane Seymour and features quotations read by actor James Keach.

Looks like its being shown here on WTTW just before Christmas. The real question is will I remember to watch it?
