Ave Maria! Every year in the town of Campocavallo, Italy, there's a festival on the first Sunday in August called "The Festival of the Covo."  For the past 70 years, a group of dedicated lay people have constructed a religious sculpture to honor the miraculous image of the Madonna of Campocavallo, and have processed the sculptures through the streets of the town with much festivity.  The sculptures are very unique: they're often larger than the size of a large automobile, and they're constructed out of steel and wood and the grain from the local fields. The sculptures from the past few years have been particularly beautiful.  They're replicas of famous churches from around the world.  Recently, Friar Terrance had the opportunity to visit the Museum of the Covo and film some of these artistic treasures.
