Commentaires : In the 12th and 13th centuries the cult of the Virgin increased in importance. Late Gothic sculptures of the virgin and child have her standing with child in her arms. The Council of Ephesus in 431 gave sanction to the cult of the Virgin as Mother of God. Soon after images of The Virgin Mary and the infant Jesus became popular items. Mary and baby Jesus works of art are often referred to as Madonna and Child. Both Mary and Jesus are wearing elaborate crowns. Mary has earned the right to the crown, the Queen symbol, because she won the Crown of righteousness, life and glory promised to those who fallow Christ. This is copy of the Hodegetria Icon, which comes from the Monastery of Hodegon in Constantinople and has been there since the 12th Century. The Icon depicts Mary holding Jesus in her left arm and pointing to him with her right to indicate that he is the way to salvation. This statue came out of the St. Augustine's Catholic Church in Rustico. The Treaty of Paris gave Acadians, who were Catholic, the right to practice their religion. By 1786 Catholics were allowed to own land on Prince Edward Island. In 1792 the first St. Augustine's church was built by the residents of Rustico. It was replace in 1806 and again in 1834 it was decided to be rebuilt again in a gothic style. Construction on the new church lasted until 1845 when the interior was finished but embellishments were continued for the next few years. St. Augustine's was the Pro-Cathedral of the Diocese for 22 years, 1837 to 1859, when F. Bernard MacDonald was appointed Bishop for the Diocese of Charlottetown but chose to continue living in Rustico.
