Isis was the most ancient goddess of the old religion for Nubians, Egyptians and Greeks. She was known for her magic, for protecting mothers and children, for teaching spiritual practices, and for her legendary devotion to her husband Osiris.
But their loving union would soon be interrupted.
Envious of their power, Set publicly welcomed them for dinner, yet that night murdered Osiris, cutting him into 13 pieces!
Grief-stricken, Isis fled with her husband’s body, hiding in an old temple. Her enemies were everywhere. But what she did next shows the true power of Black love.
She kissed him awake and magically conceived a child – Horus! Horus went on to defeat his uncle Set and restore the order of the universe.
The power of Black love can overcome nearly anything. How are you loving Black people today?
