Description

Black Madonna Black Christ Child: Former Pope Benedict XV1 and newly installed Pope Francis are seen kneeling in worshipful veneration below the imposing figure of the Black Madonna and Black Christ Child at Castel Gandolfo in Rome. Raising renewed questions: * Was the original Mother of Christ, black? * In terms of racial phenotypes, was Jesus Christ of Afrikan origin? These are questions that have been asked for centuries. As the camera lens zoom in on the Black Madonna and Christ child, is it possible that the person behind the camera might be asking the same type of questions? Has the Church been misleading us on the colour of Christ? What baffles me more than ever is the Catholic's own rule handed down from the Council of Trent in 1546 regarding the worshipful veneration of images in churches, chapels and monasteries. Such images should be portrayed as blonde European figures. Former Pope Benedict XV1 and newly installed Pope Francis in my eyes, are disobeying and disrespecting the rule of their Church by conducting prayers and reflection in front of images presented in non-European vernacular.
