Our lady of Regla

FEAST DAY: September 7

DAY OF THE WEEK: Friday

CANDLE COLOR: Blue

LEGEND: The Virgin of Regla is actually named for a seaport in Spain, the city of Regla, Spain. There is an image of the Virgin Mary there known as the Virgen de Regla. Another city was founded on the same bay as the City of Havana, Cuba, and it was named Regla, and so the patron of this city was also the same Virgen de Regla.

Later on, the slaves in Cuba who were followers of the Yourba religion of Nigeria adopted the Virgin of Regla as the surrogate for the African Orisha Yemaya. It may be that the original Virgen de Regla actually was, originally, an African Orisha who had been adopted into Christianity by way of Catholic syncretism, and then, ironically, she was transformed back into an African Orisha by way of the syncretism of Cuban Santeria.

For several centuries, Our Lady of Regla was venerated under several names: La Virgen de la Regla, Virgen Libica, Virgen del Sagrario, Estrella de los Mares and La Virgen Morena (The Black Madonna of Santeria), or Morenita.  In English she is known as Our Lady Of The Rule
