Divino Nino ~ Divine Child Jesus
Yo Reinare (I will reign)
This beautiful statue of Jesus as a Child, dressed in a pink tunic, with His arms wide open to receive us, and His innocent and loving smile can be seen today in Bogota.
It is probably one of the dearest representations of Our Lord’s Infancy;it invokes in us a desire to embrace Him and entrust all our cares into His loving arms.The devotion to the Divino Niño began in Bogota Colombia with Fr. John Rizzo, a Salesian priest from Italy, who had a great devotion to the Infant Jesus.He designed the statue with a title: "Yo Reinare" (I will reign).After he placed the statue in his church many miracles and prodigies began to be reported.
Every Medal comes with a 24" stainless steel chain and in a jewelry box.
Patron Saints, because they have already transcended to the metaphysical,are able to intercede effectively for the needs of their special charges.
Some consider it a special devotion to God by displaying humility in asking a saint for intercession rather than expecting to be answered themselves.
