Pain and Renewal
Photograph by Bruno Barbey

Adorned in somber black, a statue of the Virgin Mary takes center stage in the courtyard of Calvi's Church of Nôtre Dame de la Serra prior to a Good Friday procession. "The faithful walk with the Mother of God, participating in her suffering and walking toward the resurrection," says parish priest Pierre Pinelli. Corsica's Roman Catholic faith has sustained its people throughout centuries of poverty, oppression, and internecine strife.
