The Sarah Black Chronicles
But the sea was so tempestuous that Sarah almost lost her own life. Finally, in desperation, not knowing which direction was best, she threw her dress into the waves. And lo and behold, by some miracle, it served as a raft and helped her to convey the three Marys to shore. The holy women baptized Sara as a reward and recommended the gospel to her. Myths and legends often are a confusing mass of tangled threads and this is no exception.

As you can see from the above quote, this story is a version which is told by the Roma more commonly known as Gypsies. The Roma are a fascinating people who have via history and genetic studies been shown to have come from northern India. There are suggestions that the reverence they hold for Sarah-la-Kali or Saint Sarah as they call her go all the way back to the worship of the Hindu Goddess Kali in India but that seems unlikely. I chose the story in which she was the heroine.
Those who come to Sara pay their respects in two ritual acts Women in particular carefully stroke the statue and kiss the tails of her pleated skirts Sarah never has only one skirt on her, the Romani women are always bringing them as a gift to her. They then put down next to her the things they've brought: handkerchiefs, silk undergarments, and skirts. Finally, items that belong to lost or ill people are presented to Sara in the hopes that the lost are found and the sick healed. This entire ritual is evidently not original, and has been observed among the Dravidians in northern India The second part of the annual Romani pilgrimmage is inherent in the procession to the sea and the symbolic submersion in it, although the Church didn't recognize this ceremony until The procession and the ocean connect Sarah with all the cults of great fertility goddesses - the magic of submersion induced rain, or at least it should It has become a matter of course that just on the 24th and 25th of May parents are having their children baptized in the church before Kali Sarah.
Young couples come from all over the world to say their vows in front of Sarah. When the time comes, the men load Sarah on a horse-drawn wagon sometimes two Sarahs are taken, one Catholic and the second Romani and the endless procession sets off down the streets. It approaches the sea and the tension mounts.
First the carriage with Sarah goes into the sea. The moment the hem of her skirt touches the water, everyone else throws themselves in after her. They believe that the water that Sarah has just blessed will bring them health and luck. If you are in Europe you may need this link to hear the song. Lyrics below. Make our lives bleak as your own? But their hearts will choose freedom well. I'll try to forget nightmares I read in your palms I'll take only your money Black Sarah forgive me O lead me I pray as you led the two Marys, with love and with strength brought them safe to the land Help me understand Although I am a poor woman the eyes of my children will dance with our love, their laughter delights me!
