eternal beauty

The courtyard of the Franciscan convent. The building was in decay but still in use. Franciscans have a deep love of the Virgin Mary which is underlined with their love of roses (one of Mary's symbols). Franciscans were also special in their attention to the neglected: they baptised children who were born outside of marriage and gave them a unique family name: Rózsa (Rose) in their respect for the Virgin.

Kedves Rita! Albumodban most csak végigfutottam, de azt öröm látni, hogy keresed, és látod is a szépet. Ez a kép ráadásul izgalmas is! Szia: Zsuzsa

Szia! Kösz a dicséretet. A rózsa a ferences rendház (látható állapotban) udvarán pompázott. A ferencesek voltak az egyetlenek az Alföldön, akik törvénytelen gyereket kereszteltek, és Mária tiszteletére mindnek a Rózsa vezetéknevet adták. Üdvözlettel. Rita
