The Icon that attracts the faithful

For  the Icon of Our Lady of Jasna Gora December 12, marked the beginning of the third week of being in the Church of Carmen. More and more people are attracted to the painful face of the Virgin Mary, a wounded face and a swollen cheek that is almost unknown here. People want to know how the wounds were made and once informed that the original Icon was attacked by Czech Husyts in the fifteenth century, they are amazed at such irreverence.
