The Black Virgin of Montserrat

The Black Virgin of Montserrat is just one of many statues that feature a black Mary holding a black baby Christ. According to “renovators” of the statue, it became black over centuries due to candle smoke. However, that doesn’t seem to make sense when we consider that the statue was once inscribed with the following:

Negra Sum Sed Formosa
“I am Black But Beautiful.”

The Black Virgin of Monserrat
Black Madonna

The Black Virgin of Montserrat is found in Catalonia, Spain.

"And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God." - John 8:45-47
