Pride colours are God's creation too!

A 51-year old woman has been arrested on suspicion of offending religious sentiment, after posters bearing an image of the Virgin Mary 'The Black Madonna of Częstochowa with her halo painted in the colours of the rainbow flag appeared in the city of Płock in central Poland

In solidarity, Clayton Mercieca, coordinator of Allied Rainbow Communities, made his own version - Our Lady of Philerme


Throughout our Order, the birthday of Our Lady is kept with great solemnity in thanksgiving for the raising of the Turkish siege of Malta on 8 September 1565. At Valletta, in the Order's church of St. John the Baptist, there was venerated an ancient icon of Our Lady which had originally been brought from Jerusalem to the shrine on Mount Phileremos on Rhodes (hence the title).
