Icon Our Lady of Czestochowa 3x4

Icon Our Lady of Czestochowa 3x4
$11.95

While many different Virgin Mary icons exist, legend attributes the creation of the icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa to St. Luke, the first Christian iconographer. St. Helena is said to have located the icon during her visit to the Holy Land and brought it to Constantinople in the fourth century. In a critical battle with the Saracens, this icon was displayed from the walls of the city and the Saracens were routed. The icon was eventually owned by Charlemagne and changed hands many times, eventually making its way to Poland.

During the reign of St. Ladislaus, King of Poland, in the fifteenth century, the Tartars stole and vandalized the image, but the holy icon was recovered and restored.

The legend concerning the two scars on the Black Madonna's right cheek is that the Hussites stormed the monastery where the icon resided in 1430, plundering the sanctuary. Among the items stolen was the icon. After putting it in their wagon, the Hussites tried to get away but their horses refused to move. They threw the portrait down to the ground and one of the plunderers drew his sword upon the image and inflicted two deep strikes. When the robber tried to inflict a third strike, he fell to the ground and writhed in agony until his death.

Many times in the following centuries, the Holy Virgin demonstrated her miraculous protection of the Polish people through her icon. The Our Lady of Czestochowa icon is sometimes referred to as the "Black Madonna" because of the black color of the original, caused by age and the accumulated soot of the ages.

Icon St Bernadette of Lourdes 3x4"

$11.95

On February 11, 1858 in the small town of Lourdes in the mountains of southern France, the Blessed Virgin appeared to 14-year-old Bernadette Soubirous, the eldest child of a poor miller. The Holy Virgin appeared at the grotto to Saint Bernadette seventeen more times, with as many as 20,000 people in attendance. The Blessed Virgin?s communications to Saint Bernadette led to the discovery of the healing waters of Lourdes and the construction of a great cathedral. Persecuted by the local authorities, besieged by both the devout and the merely curious who wished to see "the saint" (a title she abhorred), she was forever an embodiment of patience, clarity, and fidelity to the revelations granted to her. After a life of humility and prayer as a nun in the Convent of Saint-Girard, she died a holy death in 1879. Her exhumed body was found to be incorrupt. The patron saint of those ridiculed for their faith, France, and devotion to the Holy Virgin.

Icon St Catherine of Alexandra

Icon St Catherine of Alexandra
$11.95

St. Catherine is believed to have been born in Alexandria of a noble family. Converted to Christianity through a vision, she denounced Maxentius for persecuting Christians. Fifty of her converts were then burned to death by Maxentius. Maxentius offered Catherine a royal marriage if she would deny the Faith. Her refusal landed her in prison. While in prison, and while Maxentius was away, Catherine converted Maxentius' wife and two hundred of his soldiers. He had them all put to death.

St. Catherine was likewise condemned to death. She was put on a spiked wheel, and when the wheel broke, she was beheaded. For this reason, these saint icons picture her with a spiked wheel. She is venerated as the patroness of philosophers and preachers. St. Catherine's was one of the voices heard by St. Joan of Arc.

Maxentius' blind fury against St. Catherine is symbolic of the anger of the world in the face of truth and justice. When we live a life of truth and justice, we can expect the forces of evil to oppose us. Our perseverance in good, however, will be everlasting.

He is best known for "Introduction to the Devout Life," a book he wrote for to help laypeople in the path of holiness amidst the struggles and demands of their daily lives.
