Our Lady of Montserrat or the Virgin of Montserrat is a venerated statue of the Madonna and Child venerated at the monastery on the Montserrat mountain in Catalonia. The statue has always been considered one of the most celebrated images in Spain. Mary in her Montserrat image is one of Catalonia's two patron saints, together with Sant Jordi (Saint George). It is one of the Black Madonnas of Europe, hence its familiar Catalan name, La Moreneta ("the little dark one"). Believed by some to have been carved in Jerusalem in the early days of the Church, it is more likely a wooden Romanesque sculpture from Medieval times. The statue shows evidence of Byzantine conventional and stylized form, and is painted in polychrome. The body is thin, the face elongated. She holds an orb of the earth in her right hand. The Child's hand is raised in a formalized and traditional Eastern blessing. The mountain of Montserrat has been of religious significance since pre-Christian times, when the Romans built a temple to honor their goddess Venus. By one account, the image of the Madonna was moved to Montserrat in 718, to avoid the danger posed by invading Saracens. By another - the first Montserrat image was found by pastor children in a cave placed in neighbouring mountains - around 880. Soon a Benedictine monastery was built there. According to a legend the monks could not move the statue, choosing instead to construct the monastery around it. The chapel with the statue is since Medieval times until now a reknown pilgrimage site. One of famous pilgrims to Montserrat was St. Ignatius of Loyola. Upon his recovery from battle wounds, he visited the monastery in 1522, where he laid down his military accouterments before the image. He then led a period of asceticism before later founding the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Pope Leo XIII granted the image a canonical coronation on 11 September 1881. During the Spanish Civil War 1936-1939, the monks were been forced to leave the monastery, with many of them murdered by the revolutionary republican side. After the war, the monastery played an important role in keeping alive the Catalan language, by continuing to publish magazines and books, including the Bible, in Catalan. In November 1982 the shrine was visited by Pope John Paul II during his first pilgrimage to Spain. The feast of Our Lady of Montserrat is celebrated on April 27.
