The Infant Jesus of Prague
The Infant of Prague statue is venerated in many countries of the Catholic world. In the church where the original is housed, it is ritually cared for, cleaned and dressed by the Carmelite sisters of the church, who change the Infant Jesus' clothing to one of the approximately one hundred costumes donated by the faithful as gifts of devotion. The statue has had a dedicated robe for each part of the ecclesiastical calendar. The statue is venerated, with the faithful believing that it has powers to give favours to those who pray to the Infant of Prague.
At the Vampire’s Wife, this little statue, with its constantly changing costumes, became the inspiration behind the Girl t-shirts. I also wanted to remind you all that there is another Girl on the way – for Valentine’s Day. It’s beautiful. Just thought you’d like to know!
