Infant of Prague

We have talked about our devotion to the Infant of Prague before, but we have a bit of an update.  Over the last few months, Hannah's mother has made a few new cloaks and we crowned him Christmas Eve.  He also received a white gold Ex Voto heart after our youngest son's baptism.

The velvet and trim were from Hobby Lobby and the lining is silk from Dharma Trading Posts.  

Such a royal purple, It is a shame we don't have better lighting overhead, the purple is sooo dark.

I must admit, I rarely miss an opportunity to celebrate a Martyr's feast day.  They deserve the celebration, and I get to use my favorite cloak for the Infant.

We were amazed at how big the crown was.  We bought it from the shop at Our Lady of Victories in Prague, where the Infant is enshrined, so we knew it was the right one for the size statue we have.

Ultimately, it turned out very well, and we were glad to be able to give the Infant a fitting crown.
