Centuries before little Therese of Lisieux would teach us about spritual childhood, the statue that would become known as the Infant of Prague silently showed us that childlike littleness, innocence and confidence, and that these are the keys to heavenly dignity for which we are destined. Many look at the statue and wonder, why is He dressed like that? The purpose of this attire is to make us aware of His holiness and our reward for imitating that holiness. The vestments are priestly and they symbolize a heavenly dignity. He says, “Unless you become like little children you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.” So here we see both represented … a little child clothed in royal, heavenly garb.
