Speaking of spirits being moved, many of the pictures my hubby took yesterday were of one of the churches he visited, the church in which the Infant of Prague statue is located. I would love to have the opportunity to be in the presence of that statue someday! Here is a picture he took that I thought was just beautiful.
I would love to do a whole blog on the history of this statue today, but I'm going to wait. My husband purchased a DVD about it while he was over there, and I'd like to watch it and learn all I can before I tackle a post like that. After looking at all the pictures he took, including some showing the different outfits the statue has worn during different liturgical seasons of the year, one thing I do realize is that I'm going to have to fashion a better robe for my own Infant of Prague statue, the TLC-needy one I rescued from the back of a church and blogged about on 11/20/11 and 12/9/11. The robe I made just doesn't do Him justice!
I love how breathtakingly beautiful the Catholic churches are in the cities of Europe. Such beauty, rendered to honor God, moves my spirit immensely.
