Africa: Marian Sanctuaries

Africa: Marian Sanctuaries

– Father Sebastien Abolodo, S.M.

The French language section of All About Mary publishes an important article on Mary's presence in French-speaking Africa. The article by Father Sebastién Abolodo, a native of Togo, is titled The Presence of Mary in Africa (Les célèbres sanctuaires marials d’Afrique). The goal of the article is to develop a Marian map of Marian sanctuaries, institutions, and organizations. Most importantly, the article begins with the study of African anthropology highlighting the place and role of the African woman in family and society.
