CZĘSTOCHOWA - the JASNA GÓRA monastery

(0 votes)


   The JASNA GÓRA MONASTERY in CZĘSTOCHOWA, POLAND, is a famous Polish shrine to the VIRGIN MARY and one of the country's places of pilgrimage. The image of the BLACK MADONNA of CZĘSTOCHOWA, also known as OUR LADY of CZĘSTOCHOWA, to which miraculous powers are attributed, is one of JASNA GÓRA's most precious treasures.

   JASNA GÓRA MONASTERY was founded in 1382 by Pauline monks who came from HUNGARY at the invitation of WŁADYSŁAW - Duke of Opole. The monastery has been a pilgrimage destination for hundreds of years, and it contains an important icon of the VIRGIN MARY. The icon, depicting the Mother of God with the Christ Child, is known as the BLACK MADONNA of CZĘSTOCHOWA or OUR LADY of CZĘSTOCHOWA, which is widely venerated and credited with many miracles.

    Among these, it is credited with miraculously saving the JASNA GÓRA MONASTERY during the Siege of JASNA GÓRA that took place at the time of the Deluge, a 17th-century Swedish invasion (i.s.).
