Day at the Sagrada Familia
The Gaudí & Barcelona Club invites all its members
to participate in the open door day of the Sagrada Familia, which will take place next Sunday
June 6th on the occasion of the Fund-raising Day. Under the slogan "Entre todos la estamos
alzando"(“Together we are raising her up”), the temple’s administrators
foresee a rush of people superior to those 32.700 people who attended the fund-raising day last
Many things have changed through the 50 years of celebration of this event; the volunteers who always make the fund-raising possible, the positioning of the fund-raising tables, the number of contributors and, of course, the amount of money collected. Obviously, the graphic design of the posters announcing the Fund-raising Day has also been changing over the years.
Yet what remains intact is the spirit the ceremony has started with. Besides fund-raising for the continuation of the construction works, its purpose was to approach the Sagrada Familia Temple to the people, in other words, to make public what was going on inside the Temple and have the people participate in its construction and assimilate Gaudí’s project.
The Sagrada Familia Temple is patrimony of all the citizens of the world.
Madre Teresa: Las
obras de amor son obras de Paz - Mother
Teresa: Works of love are works of Peace -
In 1974, Morihiro Oki, the artist of this exhibition, went to Calcuta so as to make a report about the demographic explosion of the city. Impressed by the horrible city scenes, he decided to visit Mother Teresa’s “House for the Dying”. «In this house I discovered – he assured – that those who take delight in prosperity loose everything in exchange for richness.»
As from then, committing himself to make pictures of Mother Teresa became his aim in life, authenticating through his camera the origin and heart behind the work realised by the Sisters and the Mother.
The exhibition is a display of 120 photographs reflecting the work and daily life of the Universal Mother.
«You don’t need to do anything.
The exhibition "Madre Teresa: Las obras de amor son obras de Paz" (“Mother Teresa: Works of love are works of Peace”) can be visited from June 3rd till July 30th in the interior of the Temple.
