Today, numerous Catholic pilgrims pay homage to the Infant of Prague. It is one of the major pilgrimage centers in Central Europe, with the Prague church housing the Infant Jesus statue offering regular mass in French, Czech, Spanish, Italian and German languages. Statuettes of the Infant Jesus are placed inside many Catholic churches, sometimes with the quotation, "The more you honour me, the more I will bless you.”
Trésors blue are tiny pieces of French art and devotion. Also known as "Médailles De Pelerinage" or "Medals of Pilgrimage," these little medals have had voyages from another generation, another life, another country. The deep "ultramarine" blue is the sacred color of Mary, representing truth, hope, and faith since 200 AD.
