Infant Jesus of Prague

Picture 3 of 34

People come to Prague to the Infant Jesus of Prague to ask for healing, peace, or for assistance in conceiving children. One legend says the Infant Jesus originally came from Spain. The Infant Jesus miraculously appeared to a certain monk, who modeled the statue based upon his apparition. Another legend says the statue belonged to St. Teresa of Avila, the founder of Discalced Carmelites, who gave the statue to a friend's daughter who was traveling to Prague.
