I am grateful both to my student Eugenia Geisel and my friends at Steel Magnificat for reminding me that today is what the Latin Church calls the Feast of Our Lady of Częstochowa. One of my earliest posts on this blog was about how the Black Madonna loved me into Eastern Catholicism. Eugenia also has a guest blog on her. I didn’t feel that I had much more to say at the moment about her, but I’ve been seeing many wonderful things about the Theotokos tonight – some about this icon, some not – so I thought I’d take advantage of my blogging philosophy that a blog is primarily a weblog (i.e. a log on the web) and therefore try to log all of these beautiful things.
