I have always been a sucker for pretty jet-complexioned women and I find myself infatuated with this image of the Virgin of Loreto from Římov, in the Czech Republic. She is too pretty to be an image of the Mother of God. I am smitten and I can't lie. She gives me a boner, and that makes me a sinner. What am I supposed to do?
My views on the absence of a black Madonna in the practice of Christianity among Africans and the African Diaspora, and its relationship to the expression of the concepts of Divinity, Adoration, Veneration and Appreciation within their family and social fabric.
