Click here and go with Maryange Tibot, Kathleen McGowan and Patrick Bernauw to the Holy Blood Procession in Bruges and the Mystic Lamb in Ghent

May 21 was a magnificent day. I had the chance to meet extraordinary people … kind and generous people. I speak about Kathleen McGowan, Mary Parent, Patrick Bernauw, Patrick Ruffino and Marc Borms.

Synchronicity was a key partner in our meeting, and we all share a similar interest in the phenomenon. One person was absent on this memorable day, but we did not miss an opportunity to speak about him: Philip Coppens. Without him, this would not have been possible.

I quickly felt that I met with friends and very quickly, humour, passion and curiosity replaced the stress of meeting the unknown...

I‭ ‬reconnected with the charming team in Ghent,‭ ‬on a‭ ‬café‭ ‬terrace in front of the Cathedral of Saint Bavo.‭ ‬The cathedral is dedicated to an unknown saint.‭ ‬I‭ ‬therefore wanted to know more about it.‭ ‬Now,‭ ‬imagine my surprise to learn that‭ ‬Saint Bavo had‭ ‬an earlier name,‭ ‬Allowyn.‭ ‬It is the happy forerunner of a work that will shortly commence.‭

But let us return to our joyful and dynamic team.‭ ‬We visited all together the cathedral and naturally,‭ ‬stayed for a long time in front of the famous polyptych of Jan and Hubert Van Eyck.‭ “‬The mystic Lamb‭” ‬was completed in‭ ‬1432.‭ ‬It is‭ ‬a real miracle,‭ ‬which‭ ‬encapsulates so much information.‭ ‬For more details,‭ ‬I invite you to consult the pages of a specialist on the subject,‭


I spent‭ ‬an unforgettable‭ ‬time in front of it,‭ ‬as it is so interesting to listen to the inexhaustible Patrick Bernauw on this subject.‭ ‬Let us‭ ‬put it plain and simple:‭ ‬he and I shall have to work together‭ ‬in the near future,‭ ‬him,‭ ‬in Flemish,‭ ‬me in French,‭ ‬us‭ ‬together in English.‭ ‬What an ambitious‭ ‬development and promising project‭!

I had to‭ ‬leave my new friends here,‭ ‬in front of the cathedral,‭ ‬called towards‭ ‬other obligations‭! ‬But my next reunion with Kathleen McGowan,‭ ‬Patrick Ruffino and Mary Parent in Perpignan‭ ‬makes me grow impatient even now.

Fortunately,‭ ‬the story doesn’t stop there.‭
