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.

2 COR 3:4-11
Thought of the day
    June 26 2019 Wednesday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 373 Reading 1 GN15:1-12, 17-18 The word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: "Fear not, Abram! I am your shield; I will make your reward very great." But Abram said, "O Lord GOD, what good will your gifts be, if I keep on being childless and have as my heir the steward of my house, Eliezer?" Abram continued, "See, you have given me no offspring, and so one of my servants will be my heir." Then the word of the LORD came to him: "No, that one shall not be your heir; your own issue shall be your heir." He took him outside and said: "Look up at the sky and count the stars, if you can. Just so," he added, "shall your descendants be." Abram put his faith in the LORD, who credited it to him as an act of righteousness. He then said to him, "I am the LORD who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land as a possession." "O Lord GOD," he asked, "how am I to know that I shall possess it?" He answered him, "Bring me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old she-goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon." Abram brought him all these, split them in two, and placed each half opposite the other; but the birds he did not cut up. Birds of prey swooped down on the carcasses, but Abram stayed with them. As the sun was about to set, a trance fell upon Abram, and a deep, terrifying darkness enveloped him. When the sun had set and it was dark, there appeared a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch, which passed between those pieces. It was on that occasion that the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying: "To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the Great River the Euphrates." Responsorial Psalm PS 105:1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8-9 R.(8a) The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. or: R. Alleluia. Give thanks to the LORD, invoke his name; make known among the nations his deeds. Sing to him, sing his praise, proclaim all his wondrous deeds. R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. or: R. Alleluia. Glory in his holy name; rejoice, O hearts that seek the LORD! Look to the LORD in his strength; seek to serve him constantly. R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. or: R. Alleluia. You descendants of Abraham, his servants, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones! He, the LORD, is our God; throughout the earth his judgments prevail. R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. or: R. Alleluia. He remembers forever his covenant which he made binding for a thousand generations— Which he entered into with Abraham and by his oath to Isaac. R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. or: R. Alleluia. Alleluia JN 15:4A, 5B R. Alleluia, alleluia. Remain in me, as I remain in you, says the Lord; whoever remains in me will bear much fruit. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel MT 7:15-20 Jesus said to his disciples: "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but underneath are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will know them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them."
