Infant Jesus of Prague Medal
Infant of Prague Medal in nickle and lead free pewter, with an image of the Infant on one side and the Sacred Heart on the obverse side.
The history of the Infant Jesus of Prague started in the 17th century when a statue of the Infant Jesus was brought into Bohemia (now Czech Republic) and eventually was given to the Discalced Carmelites in Prague. Since then, the statue has remained in Prague and has drawn many devotees worldwide to go and honor the Holy Child. Many graces, blessings, favors and miraculous healings have been received by many who petitioned before the Infant Jesus. The exact origin of the Infant Jesus statue was not truly known, but historical sources point to a small 28cm high sculpture of the Holy Child with a bird in his right hand carved in around the year 1340.
Size: 2.5cm (1 inch), made in Italy. Comes with a silver-tone split-ring through the top loop so it is ready for use.
