Infant Jesus of Prague

The Infant Jesus of Prague is said to have miraculous powers. The belief in its miraculous powers has helped numerous people all over the world for centuries. Every year, hundreds of believers ask the statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague, which can be admired in the Church of Our Lady Victorious in Prague, for help, peace, the wish for children and much more. The statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague comes from Spain. Duchess Maria Manrique de Lara brought the statue to Prague, where she got married, and her daughter donated the precious figure to the Monastery of the Barefoot Carmelites, which was located next to the Church of Our Lady Victorious. The Child of Prague wears several dresses throughout the year, which differ in colour and style. These come from different countries and centuries, just like the crown. It is an old custom to give the Child of Prague clothes as a votive offering and to dress him. The Infant Jesus of Prague blesses with his right hand, in his left he holds the orb with a cross, the symbol of world domination. His facial expression and curly hair indicate his Spanish origin.
