Myth 101 – Saint Sarah

Saint Sarah, Sara-la-Kali (Sara the Black) is the mythic patron saint of the Roma (Gypsy) people. Sarah and Kali are both images of black feminine divinity, this connection arising through the Romani peoples having originally come from India.  Saint Sarah is said to have been a servant of the Three Mary’s and accompanied them to Gaul, modern day France. Another version says Sarah was the chief of her tribe on the Rhone and had a vision of the Three Mary’s nautical arrival and welcomed them to land.
