Description
 
OUR LADY OF CZESTOCHOWA -The "Black Madonna"
This is a stylized rendering of the legendary painting of the Polish Madonna of Czestochowa which is enshrined in the chapel of the Jasna Gora monastery. According to tradition, it was painted by St. Luke on a tabletop made by St. Joseph.
One can instantly recognize this as the Polish Madonna by the two slash marks on her right cheek. Supposedly they were made by the sabre of a Hussite soldier who dropped dead instantly after the deed. The slash marks miraculously reappeared despite numerous attempts at restoration. The Madonna of Czestochowa has been symbolically crowned as Queen of Poland and is a national symbol of Polish religious liberty.

  • The card design has the OL of Czestochowa on the front and the title and a short story/description of the "Black Madonna" on the back.
