RELIGIOUS IMAGE OF MARY
Catholic churches are always very visual and sensory geweest.De religious statues are part of this setup. It helps keep the mind sharp by watching religious objects and statues in the church that can be viewed during the service. It's a similar idea as having stained glass windows in a church with one depicting religious scenes or saints. It helps the congregation and makes one feel that they are surrounded by spirituele.Katholieken also ask the Virgin Mary and the saints to intercede for them and to bidden.Dus see very often these statues of saints, where you thoughts, prayers and ask you to focus. Art is a way of expression to bring out an inner feeling - to honor and conscience to glorify God. During the first 1600 years of Christianity, most people could not read or write. Each stained glass window and statue in medieval churches told a story. Illiterate people could watch the stained glass images on the windows of the church and understand what the story was about. So not only were the pictures and paintings beautiful and reverent, but they were also very functional. They told the biblical story and the priest would be able to point to the objects in his sermons. Sculptures and stained glass were for the priests, teaching materials, tools and memories. When we walk through a classic sanctuary and we see the statues, then every saint his story. An educated Christian could learn the stories of all the saints, and tell them again to his children, even if he could not read. This also explains the traditional classification of the windows: a large central image surrounded by a large number of smaller ones. With proper explanation, one could learn the story quickly, say John the Baptist, along with all the important aspects of the life of Christ. These were not false images to be worshiped, but memories of the story of salvation.
