The National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa


The National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa is a Catholic Shrine located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania

The Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa is painted on three linden boards having the following total dimensions: height, 47.6 inches; width 32 inches; and maximum thickness, 1,37 inches. The Icon depicts the Blessed Virgin Mary standing with the child Jesus in her arms. Both having expressions of thoughtfulness, Mary looks at the faithful, while the child directs His gaze toward the pilgrim and beyond. The Blessed Mother’s right cheek is marked with two parallel scratches, while third scratch is on the nose line. On the neck we can see six cuts, two of which are clearly visible, while the other four cuts are more hidden. The Child rests on Mary’s left arm; in His left hand He holds a book, while He raises His right hand in a gesture characteristic of teaching or blessing. The right arm of Mary points to Jesus, who is the only Savior of the world
