利木赞九周年庆典是每七年组织一次的盛大仪式和,目的是为了展示和崇拜保存在利木赞教堂中的天主教圣徒遗物。在当地城镇和村庄的广泛支持下,参加庆祝活动的人很多,他们聚集在一起观看圣物箱,在圣物箱穿过城镇的过程中,伴随着旗帜、横幅、装饰品和盛装的历史人物。七旬节的表白属于利木赞的全体居民,居民——无论是徒还是非徒——都认为自己是这一传统的捍卫者。协会和委员会积极参与知识(口头和书面)的传播,以及与此实践相关的人工制品。准备文字是一项为期一年的公共事业,动员了许多工匠、当地神职人员、议员、慈善机构和志愿者,以及唱诗班、乐队和音乐团体的知识和技能,以组织庆祝活动并更新对文字的记忆。这些准备工作也有助于加强社会联系,而庆祝活动在帮助新来的或前居民融入社会,以及在亲属返回参加庆祝活动时使家庭团聚方面发挥着重要作用。

The Limousin septennial ostensions are grand ceremonies and processions organized every seventh year for the exhibition and worship of relics of Catholic saints kept in Limousin churches. Widely supported by local towns and villages, the festivities are attended by great numbers of people who gather to see the reliquaries as they process through town, accompanied by flags, banners, decorations and costumed historical figures. The septennial ostensions belong to the whole population of Limousin, and the inhabitants – Christian and non-Christian alike – think of themselves as the keepers of the tradition. Confraternities and committees are actively involved in the transmission of knowledge (both oral and written), as well as the artefacts linked with this practice. Preparing the ostensions is a communal, year-long undertaking that mobilizes the knowledge and skills of many craftspeople, local clergy, councillors, charities and volunteers, as well as choirs, bands and musical groups, in organizing the festivities and renewing the memory of the ostensions. The preparations also help to strengthen social bonds, while the festivities play an important role in helping recently arrived or former inhabitants to integrate and in reuniting families as relatives return to join in the celebrations.
