The finding of the Infant's crown in many ways felt like the parable of the lost coin, where one gathers round to celebrate the finding of that which was lost. In doing a bit of reading about the Infant of Prague we would discover that today, January 14th, is actually the anniversary when the Infant received the gift of His crown from Bernard Ignatius. The gold crown was set with precious stone and jewels. On January 14th 1651 the crown was presented and the statue was processed from Our Lady of Victory Church to other churches throughout Prague. The Infant of Prague currently resides today in The Lady of Victory Church. Those that help operate the Church have a wonderful offer that each Thursday they place intentions emailed to them before the Infant of Prague during Adoration for 1 hour. Tonight a message goes to Prague to ask for blessings of each member of the Children's Rosary. In addition a prayer for peace is requested of our Prince of Peace.
