286- The Marian Column of Prague, Yesterday & Today

While overseas last fall, I literally “stumbled” on the “Marian Column” in Old Town Prague.

The story of the Marian Column of Prague is obscure. It had been hidden behind the Iron Curtain for too long. The original built in 1650 stood for 300 years before being destroyed in 1918.

But the bravery of the people of Czechoslovakia and their demands for freedom during the peaceful “Velvet Revolution” in 1989, formed their new countries of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Thirty years later in June 2020, citizens of the new Czech Republic, their artistic freedoms of expression alive once again, combined with many peoples undying love for the Madonna and returned the Marian Column to the spot where the Virgin Mary once again, offers her love for humanity.
