The Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, often referred to as “The Black Madonna”, is one of the most ancient and glorious representations of Our Blessed Mother with her Divine Child in the world today! Legend states it was painted by St. Luke the Evangelist, on a cedar tabletop, which was built by Jesus himself.
The Icon gets its name “The Black Madonna” from several events; including exposure to centuries of soot from votive lights and candles burning in front of the painting. There are many miracles attributed to the Black Madonna: such as saving the Monastery of Jasna Gora, sudden and spontaneous healings of pilgrims, and bleeding from the scars on the face of Mary.
