The Infant of Prague Statue is a statue showing Jesus as a young child. The original statue is made of wax on a wooden base. It had been a wedding gift to Princess Polyxena von Lobkowicz in 1628. The princess gave the statue to the Carmelites nuns in Prague with the following statement, "Venerable Fathers, I bring you my dearest possession. Honour this image and you shall never want". A few years later, the Carmelites were transferred to Munich and with the 30 Years War, the Army of Sweden took possession of the Churches in Prague. The statue was thrown into the trash pile in the back of the Church. Seven years later, it was found with its hands broken off and placed back in the Church by a priest. This priest, Father Cyrillus 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 hands were restored and the statue has been in Prague ever since. Today, thousands of people visit the statue of the Infant of Prague yearly.
This replica of the Infant of Prague figurine is 8.75 inches tall.

I recently heard that having devotion to the Infant many blessings will come. I am praying for our Grandson with Leukemia and niece with Breast Cancer.
