Why the road to Frances?
The realisation of the bronze artwork The Road To Reconciliation means that a first milestone has been attained.
During the next phase the initiating artist, Pierre Habets, wants to find out if a meeting and reconciliation of the Roman Catholic church and the victims can be worked out on a bigger scale.
Therefore he would very much like to contact the pope. Perhaps The Road To Reconciliation can help the pope in his fight against abuse and cover-up, and somehow effect a reconciliation on a bigger scale. Hence the road to Frances.
