- About Saint Sarah Kali
Saint Sarah, also known as Sara-la-Kali ("Sara the Black", Romani: Sara e Kali),
is the patron saint of the Romani people. The center of her veneration is
Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, a place of pilgrimage for Roma in the Camargue, in southern France. Legend identifies her as the servant of one of the Three Marys, with whom she is supposed to have arrived in the Camargue.
According to various legends, during a persecution of early Christians, commonly placed in the year 42, Lazarus, his sisters Mary and Martha, Mary Salome (the mother of the Apostles John and James), Mary Jacobe and Maximin were sent out to sea in a boat. They arrived safely on the southern shore of Gaul at the place later called Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. In some accounts Sarah, a native of Upper Egypt, appears as the black Egyptian maid of one of the Three Marys, usually Mary Jacobe.
Though the tradition of the Three Marys arriving in France stems from the high Middle Ages, appearing for instance in the 13th century Golden Legend, Saint Sarah makes her first appearance in Vincent Philippon's book The Legend of the Saintes-Maries (1521), where she is portrayed as "a charitable woman that helped people by collecting alms, which led to the popular belief that she was a Gypsy." Subsequently, Sarah was adopted by Romani as their saint.
Prayer to Saint Sarah Kali
Sarah, patron saint of travelers and Gipsies the world over.
You who lived in this region of Saintes- Maries-de-la-Mer.
You came from a far-away country from across the seas.
I love to come and find you here, to tell you all that I have
in my heart and in you confide my sorrows and joys.
I pray to you for everyone in my family and all my friends.
Sarah, come to me!
