Pillar-type chapel to St. Isidore the Farmer in the village of Ličiūnai

  • Koplytstulpis Šventąjam Izidoriui Artojui Ličiūnų kaime
This pillar-type chapel is located at crossroads, on the edge of Ličiūnai village. It is designed to mark the 515th anniversary of the village (1497-2012). Since this is farmers' land for centuries, St. Isidore the Farmer, the patron of farmers, has been chosen as a symbol and it is a typical pillar-type chapel with respect for all old traditions. On a wooden monument you can read the Parable of the Growing Seed from the Gospel according to Mark: "The Kingdom of God is as if a man should cast seed on the earth, and should sleep and rise night and day, and the seed should spring up and grow, he doesn't know how. For the earth bears fruit: first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. But when the fruit is ripe, immediately he puts forth the sickle, because the harvest has come." The author of this monument is a sculptor Arūnas Grušas from Pasvalys and it was consecrated by Panevėžys Bishop Jonas Kauneckas.
