Switzerland – The Second Dark Madonna

by Mary Wallace on March 29, 2009

On my first trip to Europe, after spotting the Beaune Madonna, we went to my mother-in-law’s family’s hometown of Einsiedeln, Switzerland.

You can see that she is BLACK!  Dark skinned!  She is not white and smoke colored.  So it became a strange challenge to me, WHO IS SHE?  I had had many magical spiritual moments in prayer, moments that felt cosmic, but I’d never ever felt the presence of the sacred feminine until I saw these black mothers.

isn’t it wonderful to know the truth and not some tripe people made up to try and make their (lighter) skintone more popular or sacred? may the Black Madonna help you in your search.
