Product Description

Our Lady of Częstochowa is a depiction of Mary and Jesus, said to have been painted by Saint Luke on the Holy Family's cedar tabletop! In the image, Mary has dark skin, earning the nickname "Black Madonna." Around 1384, the miraculous image was brought to Poland, and Our Lady of Czestochowa remains the country's beloved patroness. The two scratches on her face were the result of sword strikes during an attempted theft in 1430.

Feast Day: August 26

Patronage: Poland
