Infant Jesus of Prague

The Infant Jesus (Czech: Pražské Jezulátko) is a wax image of Jesus in his childhood.

It is located in the Church of St. Mary of Victory and St. Anthony of Padua in the city of Prague (capital of the Czech Republic).

Many pious legends hold that the image of the Holy Infant of Prague once belonged to St. Teresa of Jesus and is considered a miraculous image, especially among pregnant women. The image was given to the Carmelite friars in 1628 by Princess Polixena of Lobkowicz.

Likewise, The Feast of the Infant Jesus is currently celebrated on the first Sunday in June, and its image is venerated in a rich golden altarpiece in the Church of Our Lady of Victory and St. Anthony of Padua  near Prague Cathedral.
