Fr Roten #40: Switzerland
In Search of Truth Caritas Müller
Part rough and part glazed, this set was made for the Marian Library Collection by Swiss artist Sr. Caritas Müller. It consists of two panels The one to the left pictures the Holy Family. The two figures of the panel to the right are shepherds. Mary is involved in conversation with one of the shepherds. She emphatically points to the child. The shepherd wants to know: who is this child? Mary tries her very best to explain. In search of truth, this question has been asked by many visitors of the crèche, for centuries on end. Mary still explains, engaging visitors in a “sacred conversation” where faith and truth are bonded.
