Our Lady of Czestochowa

Standard

We were anxious to visit the Jasna Cora Monastery in Czestochowa, especially since the national shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa is near us in Doylestown, PA. The monastery houses the famous Black Madonna, nicknamed “Our Lady of Czestochowa.” My phone was out of juice, so Mike sent me these photos that he took in the shrine. It was truly beautiful, and we saw pilgrims on their knees, making their way to pray at the Black Madonna, a much revered icon which may have originally been painted by St. Luke who painted it on a cedar table top from the house of the Holy Family.
