The Infant of Prague
The Infant of Prague is a statue of the Child Jesus in the Czech Republic. Originally, He belonged to a group of nuns who gave him to a royal family. After many years, the statue was given by their daughter, Princess Polyxena, to the Carmelite priests in Prague. People began to visit the statue of the Infant Jesus and many reported miracles. Once, after an invasion destroyed the church in which the statue was kept, a priest was searching through the rubble. He discovered the statue of the Infant but His hands were missing. He heard a voice say “Have pity on me, and I will have pity on you. Give me my hands, and I will give you peace. The more you honor me, the more I will bless you.” The statue was repaired and is kept in a beautiful church in Prague. The Infant of Prague depicts the Child Jesus as a King, clothed in fine robes and wearing a crown on His head. Copies of the statue are found all over the world. How can we honor the Infant of Prague?
