Since that date , the day of the divine child Jesus , many devotees and faithful throughout the world rehearse the request using this phrase of the venerable Margarita, in order to obtain favors and spiritual wishes that change the life of any person.
How to get to Prague
The Infant Jesus of Prague is established when some religious Carmelites residing in Spain, elaborated various images of the Child God, there was a Carmelite who always thought of the words of Saint Teresa: “Look at my eyes, sweet good Jesus. See my eyes. I’ll die later.” And he asked the Lord to be able to observe the face of the Divine Child Jesus that he had learned from the Saint.
Divine inspiration allowed the Carmelite to observe the face of the Divine Child and this allowed him to make a small statue where it reflected the face that had been illuminated, Carmelite died happy knowing that he had made the identical image that had appeared to the Holy .
This figure was donated by the Carmelites to a princess who was on her way to the Czechoslovakia region to marry the Prince of Prague. The story goes that when the image was in that country, various miracles began to happen to those who worshiped it. Before she died, the princess left the statue to the Carmelite Fathers.
She told them to adore and venerate it, since in it she had observed many favors to those who venerated them, and not to forget or let the image get lost or deteriorate, they should take care of it for as long as necessary.
From that moment the Carmelite father named Cirilo who resides in the City of Prague began to make a pilgrimage and perform the devotion in that country, where thousands of people came to obtain the favors of the Divine Child, however many detractors and opponents of this devotion tried to destroy it. .
The Father offered to build a temple for the Divine Child where the image could be venerated in peace, so that after some time the temple was built that is currently located in the vicinity of the city of Prague, today the Czech Republic, where thousands of people attend annually. to venerate the holy Divine Child Jesus.
Cardinal Kaspar, bishop of Czechoslovakia, was a great fighter and promoter of devotion during the 17th century. He told his faithful and students the stories of the Child Jesus, after he had been largely unaware of the stories of the Young Jesus, this enlightened him. to be one of the great promoters of devotion in that country.
He dedicated the rest of his life to carrying forward the richness of the spiritual content of the Child Jesus, he spread the devotion throughout the region and the history of the divine child Jesus , allowing him to establish a path to achieve expansion to other European countries.

In Germany, the devotion began in the year 1697, when a great Carmelite missionary toured all the towns of Germany taking the devotion to the most hidden corners of the country, placing the image in various Catholic temples so that the faithful would know and venerate it. The God child was called “Little Great”, who filled many hearts in Germany with joy.
In this country images of the Divine Child are obtained in various places, the venerable Margarita del Santísimo Sacramento who in 1634 was the one who spread the devotion in that country, established the devotion to the “Divino Infante”! and miraculous protection of the Child Jesus, arousing considerable enthusiasm among the faithful.

Devotion is great in Italy and many homes have images of the Holy Child of God.
In this region a great Sanctuary of the Miraculous Child Jesus was built, where Father Juan del Rizzo had the inspiration and intelligence to learn everything related to the Devotion of the Divine Child, which he would later take to Latin America a few years later.
In this country there is a great devotion for the Child Jesus, his image is seen in most of the Catholic Churches, the first image was located in a temple of Carmelite sisters more than 200 years ago, the faithful venerate and idolize him and the temples where it is located, people massively attend to request their favors
Some say that in Belgium there are as many temples and images of the Divine Child as hearts and faithful to devotion since you can see the places where my image is, every day full of faithful, to request favors or thank those received.
Arrival in Latin America
It is believed that the devotion came to Latin America through the Carmelite fathers during the year 1907, where the Salesian Community brought with it a series of devotions where the tradition of the Divine Child Jesus was included.
The tradition was accompanied by various favors granted to devotees who thanked for the blessings and favors received in various Spanish cities and other European countries, these arrived in Latin America and little by little it grew, especially due to the hard work of the Salesian Father Juan del Rizzo .
This priest had arrived in the city of Barranquilla in the year 1914, who began to dedicate all his time to strengthening the devotion through the collection of funds for the construction of the temple.
However, it was difficult to achieve his goal and obtaining divine inspiration through the petition to Jesus Christ for his merits in his childhood, he obtained a great success with the preaching of the divine Child Jesus throughout the country, managing to be until today one of the most large in Latin America and especially in Colombia.
One of the situations that gave strength to the devotion was the event narrated by the girl’s own father and reflected the moment in which the divine Child Jesus performed the miracle. The story begins with the situation of an 18-year-old girl who suffered from severe pain in her joints.
They were so strong that the girl could not walk and little by little her quality of life was diminishing, so much so that the day-to-day conditions worsened and there was fear for the life of the young woman, the father observed the conditions and administered to protect her soul extreme unction since there was no life expectancy.
No medicine helped to improve the poor girl’s clinical condition, the services of one of the best doctors in the city was requested, who diagnosed a serious rheumatological condition, however, the young woman’s clinical condition did not improve, her pain was terrible , even having convulsions and fever.
In one of the rheumatological attacks, the girl fainted and her mother decided to bring an image of the Divine Child Jesus, (whom they had adored for a long time), and placing it in front of the young woman, her mother said:
- “ Daughter, Our Lord made the promise that if we ask for the merits of your childhood, our prayer will be heard. Let us ask him for the merits of the first 12 years of his life, if it suits you for the health of the soul, grant you the health of the body. Give a kiss to the image of the Divine Child and we will then place it next to your feet that hurt so much”.
They both prayed with great faith, and the young woman kissed the image, after about an hour, the young woman shouted very excited: I am healed! And moving her arms and legs without feeling any pain, really verify that she was totally healed! .
The relatives gathered and together they gave thanks to the Miraculous Child Jesus, after a while the girl did not present any symptoms related to rheumatism, and the young woman led a completely normal life carrying out her daily activities in a natural and calm way.
There are many witnesses to this fact that verify the miracle of the Divine Child Jesus, the parish bishop, was present at the event and verified the miracle, later the doctors did not get an answer to this phenomenon.
Father Juan del Rizzo and devotion to the Child Jesus
That same year a record was drawn up, where the fact is verified, signed by the Bishop of Cali himself, Fr. Juan Manuel Sinisterra in 1916, after this event, Father Rizzo moved to the city of Medellín, where he began his work of pilgrimage to the devotion of the Child Jesus.
The devotion consists of highlighting the spiritual value and merits of the figure of the Child Jesus. The father encouraged devotion using at first the image of the Child Jesus of Prague, after a time the devotees to the pilgrimage of the Child Jesus in Medellin opposed that image.
They also alleged that they were the ones who had the exclusivity of that image of Prague, and in order not to create controversy, Father Rizzo looked for another way to carry out the devotion, proposing that the miracles are not done by the images but by the image itself. Spiritual figure of Jesus Christ.
By the year 1935, the father had been transferred to the capital of Colombia, where coincidentally he found an image of the Divine Child, and used it in an uninhabited place in the 20 de Julio neighborhood in Bogotá, there he began his pilgrimage again towards the image of the baby Jesus.
People came looking for some favor or miracle, which began to happen suddenly, between healings, reconciliation of couples, behavior problems, business protection, etc. the presence of devotion became massive.
Father Rizzo’s conviction regarding the devotion of the Child Jesus was so strong that the conviction towards the devotees was total, it showed that the virtues of the child Jesus were real, and that his childhood was full of passion and love towards those around him.
Regarding the image, the child Jesus is observed with open arms and wearing a small crown, which he accompanies with a beautiful smile, this image is the one that since 1935 is venerated throughout the world, where faith towards Jesus Child It allows things to happen as God intended.

The Conditions Father Juan Rizzo
The main devotee of the Divine Child Jesus, recommended a series of conditions, which can help to obtain special favors, during the application process, described a few years ago, allow us to have a reference on how to establish the form of devotion to the Child Jesus:
The father established several conditions but emphasized four conditions, the first is to offer Mass for nine consecutive Sundays, confession and communion on at least one of them.
The second condition focuses on giving a pound of chocolate or the equivalent in money or food to the poor.
The third condition consists of granting a market to the poorest families, or the equivalent in money, these conditions for people who have sufficient resources, it is not advisable to distribute them in the street to avoid disorder.
The fourth recommendation is to make narrations of the miracles of the divine child Jesus through various brochures, almanacs and folios, where these events are described, also inviting people to participate in the devotion, through requests for needs.
In order to maintain devotion and avoid deviations in spiritual practices towards the figure of the divine Child Jesus, the father also recommended the following:
- Do not stop attending mass every Sunday, since according to him, whoever leaves the house of God leaves the father and can stop receiving favors.
- Avoid living from mortal sin, if like having extramarital relationships, consuming alcohol, allowed to deviant people in the home, these situations attract punishments and curses to the home, and the same father often repeated this phrase of Saint Paul: ” Those who live in impurity , the drunkards the thieves, will not enter the Kingdom of heaven “.
- That the alms given on Sundays at mass be ostentatious, give the poor a sufficient donation in order to please God, the Bible says that for God the poor should receive 10% of what is earned (Tithe), so It will be received by the work of the Lord, it will be received 100 more than what is given.

the nine sundays
The indications about whether it is a prayer or a ceremony must be carried out every Sunday that complements the nine Sundays called novena, it allows to organize in a clear way the most spiritual aspects that can fill the whole process with faith, let’s see
Considerations are made regarding how Jesus changed the water into wine, the reading of the Holy Gospel according to Saint John is made, to remember the reason and why Jesus performed that miracle. There is also an evocation of how the devotion was established in the region and how to get to the town or country.
They serialize the prayers referring to the first novena and it concludes with small songs and joys, saying the final prayer and praying for peace in the world.
The consideration is made based on the healing of Jesus, so that the reading of the Holy Gospel according to Saint Mark (7, 31) is carried out, where it describes the facts of how Jesus healed a person who could not speak or listen .
Then the prayer is made, with some considerations such as “Jesus speaks” “If you honor me, I will honor you. If you are generous with me, I will be generous with you.” Some joys are said and it ends with the final prayer.
On this third Sunday Jesus’ desire for the conversion of sins is fulfilled, the respective reading is that of The Gospel according to Saint Luke, where sinners and publicans who approached Jesus to hear him are spoken of.
Like the previous prayers, Jesus speaks, the songs to the divine child Jesus and joys are established, ending with the final Sunday prayer.
Consideration is established on this Sunday to Jesus Christ as the shepherd of all, the reading is that of the Gospel according to Saint John, where the descriptions of Jesus are established while he preached as a shepherd in search of his sheep.
The ceremony culminates with the completion of the final prayer after speaking of Jesus and prays a joy, inviting those present to come next Sunday to the following Novena dedicated to devotion.

That moment is related as a transfiguration of Jesus where his face becomes very bright as the sun and his clothing as white as light, the moment of this novena reflects how Jesus tried to indicate to his disciples his truth about permanence on earth.
This novena ends with the final prayer, some prayers of joy and encouraging the faithful to maintain faith in the devotion of the Divine Child.
The multiplication that Jesus made of the loaves, his presence in Galilee and the sharing that he carries out with his disciples are considered in the act, the moment is interesting since Easter was approaching and the Lord’s farewell was coming.
At the end of the story is said “Word of God” and the faithful must respond “We ask you Lord”, the mass ends with the final prayer and farewell.
It is established in this penultimate ceremony of the novena, the moment of consideration when Jesus is at the last supper, the Gospel according to Saint John is taken as the main reading (13 1, 15). The washing of the feet, the blessings and everything that happened at the last supper represents a high point in the life and work of Jesus.
At the end, the faithful reflect on the sacred words of the son of God, and the final prayer is performed, as a farewell to this eighth day of the novena.

Prayers to the Divine Child
The prayers that are prepared in each of the novenas are structured in a specific way, during the mass a small schedule of situations raised by the priestly hierarchy must be complied with, in order to comply with the established encyclical forms.
Each novena must comply with a process of situations that allow the mass to develop in a balanced way and that the faithful can understand the reason for its realization. These moments for the realization of the prayer to the Divine Child Jesus in the mass, are structured as follows:
- It begins with the preparation that is usually done by praying an Our Father.
- Next comes the act of contrition, where each believer repents of all their sins, and a description of the situations is made praising God and asking for forgiveness.
- Follow the prayer of the day where you pray for life situations on the planet, each faithful expresses in a low voice their wishes for peace and harmony.

Confession as a complement to prayer
It is a sacrament performed by the faithful in order to seek absolution from the priest, receiving forgiveness of all sins through repentance, it is taken as a reference in the bible when it says: “Confess your sins to each other so that be saved.”
With confession, each person obtains the return of friendship with God, special forces to avoid sinning again by rejecting temptations and the rejection of everything that offends God. This sacrament helps us to carry out an examination of conscience, repent of sins, approach the Church and fulfill the respective penance.
The confession is a complement to the prayer to the Divine Child Jesus, we are remembering the sins committed after the last confession, it is considered a behavior test that every person must take.
