I think the collection is offensive to Our Lady just like rosary beads worn as cheap jewelery. The fact that it is quite beautifully and artistically presented could indicate something about the designer's attraction to the Blessed Virgin.
Poor man could be craving the Faith. Let's all say one Hail Mary just for him.
Our Lady would like that.
Those are a great points!
Why are we offended at this, yet not up in arms that the Rosary has become a piece of jewelry.
The collection is simply taking existing images, existing art, and replicating that art that Our Lady gave us in the first place. Let's remove the immodest clothing. If one of these were done, with modest clothing, as a part of a play about Our Lady, would we object? Methinks not.
If we wish to be Iconoclasts, then we must be like the Muslims and object to any depiction of holy things. But since few would do that, we don't object to the images, but to the context in which those images are displayed.
There are also a few pokes at modesty, but hardly the gouges what even traditional Catholics make into modesty on a daily basis.
The poor man is probably craving the Faith in some way.
Were it not for the us worrying about the news and highly problematic reactionaries like TiA, we wouldn't even be discussing this small even thousands of miles from most of us. Perhaps we should concentrate more on our own Faith and our own local issues, rather than seek out potentially objectionable things and air our thoughts.
