🤍 🖤 Famous Black Madonna of Hermits, she is the national shrine of Switzerland.
Located south of Zurich at an elevation of about 3,000 feet is one of the most ancient and revered holy places in Europe. The shrine located here dates from sometime in the 9th Century when a hermit from one of the local monasteries, Saint Meinrad, built a hermitage on what was then open countryside and brought with him a wooden statue of the Madonna.
Meinard was known for giving hospitality to strangers, but unfortunately that led to his death. In January 861, he took in two rather rough-looking travelers and fed them. It turned out that they were thieves, and when it turned out that he had nothing of value, they beat him to death. 🤍 🖤
