Most feared by Satan - The Black Madonna

On 15th June 2012, Poland's Czarna Madonna Icon (Black Madonna)  began its 'Ocean to Ocean' Pro Life Pilgrimage from the Pacific Ocean port of Vladivostok with the final destination being Fatima and the Atlantic Ocean.

En route it will have visited vast swathes of Eastern Europe and many countries.

Here is how the organisers describe the pilgrimage:

On 15 June 2012 an icon of the Mother of God began its pilgrimage from the Pacific Ocean at Vladivostok in Russia to the Atlantic Ocean at Fatima in Portugal. The icon itself is a very beautiful replica of the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa. The pilgrimage which has come to be known as Ocean to Ocean is an act of entrustment to Our Blessed Lady of the Civilisation of Life and Love which is now under massive global attack by the Culture of Death.
Ocean to Ocean combines a deeply spiritual pilgrimage with Our Lady with the promotion of the pro-life and pro-family teachings of the Orthodox and Catholic Churches. It has received the blessing of high-ranking priests of the Orthodox Church in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Lithuania and Poland. In the West it has the support of many Catholic Bishops and priests and pro-life and pro-family groups.

At present it is in Britain, Scotland and England only, sadly, it will not visit Wales.
It would have been very fitting if the icon had been taken to the National Shrine of Wales, Our Lady of the Taper in Cardigan, equal to England's Walsingham Shrine to Our Lady.
The great thing is that Satan and his demons have a particular fear of the Black Madonna so we may ask, especially during the course of this visit,  for Our Blessed Mother's protection in the future.
