More on Saint Sarah

Dear Shaded Viewers,

More information on Saint Sarah, or Sainte Sara la Kali ("Saint Sara the black") the protectress of the gypsies.

The center of her veneration is Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, a place of pilgrimage for gypsies in the Camargue. Legend identifies her as the servant of one of the Three Marys, with whom she is said to have arrived in the Camargue. She has been known as a charitable woman that helped people by collecting alms, which led to the popular belief that she was a Gypsy. Subsequently she was adopted by Roma as their saint.

wikipedia…now you know as much about her as I  do.

She is considered to be a christianized version of the Indian goddess Kali. Every 24th August, her arrival is recreated by taking her statue out of the sea and bringing it into the church.
