165- How St. Luke’s “Black Madonna” icon got to Poland

This story is about St. Luke’s “Black Madonna” also known as “Our Lady of Czestochowa.” This is the original miraculous icon that eventually found it’s way to Poland. Upon viewing it, some say it points to “One Who Show’s the Way.”

164- St. Paul’s follower St. Luke meets The Madonna

The next point on my timeline is around 35AD when Saint Paul’s travels ended in Rome. While there St. Luke stayed at his side. Eventually St. Luke met and created an icon and/or painting of The Virgin Mary.

163- St. James sees the Madonna in Spain

Moving along the timeline of history of the Virgin Mary in an expanded look beyond my book Constant Procession to when the Virgin Mary appeared to St. James in Spain.

Our Lady of Pilar (Pillar) is a minor Basilica-Cathedral…this is where the pillar resides as do many other chapels and alters…the famous Goya has work within it.
Wider view of the wall…the actual forum is still intact in a museum.

The story goes something like this: Saint James the Apostle who with great zeal went into Spain to spread the Good New of Jesus Christ. He found himself in Zaragosa (Saragosa) around 40AD.

This was an established Roman settlement on the banks of the Ebro River. He was deep in prayer due to his unsuccessful attempts to gain followers.

The Virgin Mary who at the time was living in the Middle East came to him at that moment in the time on a pillar (pilar) made of Jasmine.

She offered her motherly support to encourage St James and helped him to renew his commitment through her encouragement and visitation.

She requested he build a chapel around the jasmine pillar that she stood on which the modern day Basilica was built around and it can be found there today.

161- The Madonna visits St. John the Baptist’s mom.

The Madonna visits her cousin Elizabeth who’s also pregnant with her baby (John the Baptist.) Plus, the apparition that occurred to Elizabeth’s husband Zachariah.

This is the next date on my timeline of the history of the Virgin Mary.

In this installment the time is year one BC, Before Christ, which is when the Madonna, during her pregnancy travels to see her elderly relative Elizabeth who is also with child. Elizabeth is about six months further along than the Virgin Mary. Her husband cannot speak, because he doubted an apparition he witnessed when the Angel Gabriel came calling.
