FERTILITY / BLESSINGS FOR EXPECTANT MOTHERS : This is a small, traditional Infant of Prague medal with a heart on the reverse side that is framed in a crown of thorns. The Infant Jesus of Prague is a 16th-century Roman Catholic wax-coated wooden statue of child Jesus holding a globus cruciger, located in the Carmelite Church of Our Lady Victorious in Malá Strana, Prague, Czech Republic. Pious legends state that the statue once belonged to Saint Teresa of Avila and allegedly holds miraculous powers, especially among expectant mothers. Above photo is of a replica statue on display in the cathedral at Notre Dame University.
Wonderful blessing as a gift for an expectant mother
