Bob and Penny Lord have researched instances in the history of our Church when desperate brothers and sisters have sought out the Child Jesus for help, and He came to them. In addition, they bring you times when hopeless people, without asking, found the Child Jesus at their side with miracles.
Join us as we share with you Miracles of the Child Jesus:
The Child Jesus in the Holy Land
Infant Jesus brings presents at Christmas
Santo Niño de Atocha
He kept them out of harm's way as they traveled the dangerous roads.
He saved them from snake bites, dehydration, starvation,
and always brought them back to Mother Church.
There is a tremendous devotion to the
Santo Niño de Atocha to this day in many Hispanic countries.
Divino Niño de Bogota
The Divino Nino of Bogota has a fascinating history, which touches us to this day.
We share the story of this exalted Child Jesus as He came to the aid of the poor
and sick in Bogota, Colombia, through the work of a Salesian priest,
Fr. John Rizzo. He fed the poor, clothed the naked and gave medicine to the sick.
This same Divino Niño spoke to Mother Angelica and told her to build a temple,
which today is the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama.
We follow the history of the Divino Niño in Bogota, and then to the United States
through the Yes of Mother Angelica. A powerful story.
The Child Jesus has made a promise,
"The more you honor Me, the more I will bless you."
Come with Bob and Penny to the beautiful city of Prague
in the Czech Republic and the magnificent tribute to the
Child Jesus in the Carmelite Shrine
in the Church of St. Mary the Victorious.
See the Infant Jesus, brought over from Spain to Prague.
Visit with Fr. Jerome Moras as he takes us on a tour of the Shrine.
There are more than 70 beautiful dresses for the
Infant. We will show you some of them.
See the city of Prague in all its splendor.
Also scenes taken in Arenzano Italy,
where there is a sister shrine to the Infant of Prague,
also under the custodianship of the Carmelite Order.
Come to the beautiful Shrine of the Infant of Prague in the magnificent city of Arenzano,
on the shores of the Sea of Ligure, south of of Genoa, Italy.
When the Carmelites were expelled from Prague,
they went to this section of Italy, and were authorized to build a small shrine under the approval of the Archbishop of Milan.
So many miracles happened that the shrine grew
and grew, until today, it is larger than the original shrine of the Infant of Prague in Prague, Czech Republic.
See the beautiful statue of the Infant of Prague, venerated in the magnificent Basilica of Arenzano, and the shrines
to the various Carmelite Saints, St. Teresa of Avila, St.
Therese of Lisieux, and St. John of the Cross.
Most of all,
venerate the beautiful Infant of Prague of Arenzano
Santo Bambino Gesu di Aracoeli
High on one of the hills in Rome, right near the Piazza
Venezia and City Hall, is one of the oldest and unusual
churches in Rome, Santa Maria in Aracoeli,
built as the result of an apparition of Mother Mary to Emperor Caesar Augustus before Jesus or Mary were born.
The church itself has a great tradition, as the image of the Madonna of Aracoeli has given the people of Rome many miracles, but we want to focus on the little Santo Bambino,
miraculously brought from the Holy Land to Rome in the 15th Century and placed by the Franciscans in a special Shrine at the Church of Santa Maria in Aracoeli.
See the image; experience the tribute paid to the Child Jesus, especially at Christmas time.
Walk the 124 steps with Bob and Penny as they climb to the great Church.
Santo Niño de Cebu
Santo Niño de Salud
Santo Bambino di Lama dei Peligni
Come with us to the little town of Lama dei Peligni, in
the Abruzzi area of Italy, not far from Lanciano.
See a little image of the Baby Jesus, called the Santo
Bambino, which has been responsible for many
miracles in the Abruzzi area, including being spared
from a plague which attacked many areas of Italy.
See the altar dedicated to the Santo Bambino, the
tribute paid to Italian immigrants to the United States
who paid for the shrine to be built, and one of the most
unusual ex-votos, thanksgivings for miracles and
healings, in the form of gold, fine jewels and diamonds
given to the Santo Bambino.
