Infant Jesus

 

The cult of the Childhood Jesus is linked to the Baroque period.  In it the Child Jesus plays the main part.  Its history starts in Spain.  It is believed that it comes from a convent between Cordoba and Seville and is a copy of a venerated wooden sculpture.  There, Dona Isabela Manrique de Lara a Mendoza obtained  it.  The sculpture then travelled as a wedding gift to her daughter Maria Manrique de Lara.  She married a prominent Czech nobleman, Vojtech of Pernstejn.  Again it was gifted to her daughter Polyxena who married Vilem of Rozumberk.  She took the sculpture with her to her second marriage with Zdenek Vojtech of Lobkowicz.  After his death, she donated the statue of the Child Jesus to the monastery of the Teresian Carmelites near the church of Virgin Mary Victorious in Prague Mala Strana.  There it was placed first in the chapel, where it was venerated mainly by the novices.

In the year 1631 the Saxons invaded Prague and the plundering did not bypass the monastery.  The sculpture of the Child Jesus was thrown out with the waste behind the High Altar.  Here Father Cyril a Matre Dei found it when he returned to the abandoned church in Mala Strana.  The sculpture was damaged.  After many unsuccessful attempts, Father Cyril was happy to get some money from a Prague citizen for repairing the broken arms.  The Infant Jesus thus became again the object of worship and a number of miracles were linked to the statue.  It is also said it protected Prague from the Swedes.

Thought of the day
    23 Sept 2021 - Memorial of Saint Pius of Pietrelcina, Priest LECTIONARY: 452 FIRST READING: Hag 1:1-8 In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came by the hand of Haggai the prophet to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest: “Thus says the Lord of hosts: These people say the time has not yet come to rebuild the house of the Lord.” Then the word of the Lord came by the hand of Haggai the prophet, “Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies in ruins? Now, therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways. You have sown much, and harvested little. You eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm. And he who earns wages does so to put them into a bag with holes. “Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways. Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house, that I may take pleasure in it and that I may be glorified, says the Lord.” PSALM: 149:1b-2, 3-4, 5-6a and 9b Response: The Lord takes delight in his people. Sing to the LORD a new song of praise in the assembly of the faithful. Let Israel be glad in their maker, let the children of Zion rejoice in their king. Let them praise his name in the festive dance, let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp. For the LORD loves his people, and he adorns the lowly with victory. Let the faithful exult in glory; let them sing for joy upon their couches; Let the high praises of God be in their throats. This is the glory of all his faithful. Alleluia. GOSPEL: Luke 9:7-9 Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening, and he was perplexed, because it was said by some that John had been raised from the dead, by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the prophets of old had risen. Herod said, “John I beheaded, but who is this about whom I hear such things?” And he sought to see him. Source: Archdiocese of Mumbai official website (https://www.archdioceseofbombay.org/)
