King of Love 13"
(You save )
Designed by the nuns of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery this special edition of the Divine Child Jesus is a smaller version of the King of Love statue used at Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament on days celebrating the Divine Child here at the Shrine. The Little King of Love is featured as a boy (about age 6) holding out his sacred Heart. On the lower hem of his garment is an emblem with the letters of I.H.S.—the initials for Jesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus Savior of Mankind). He is standing upon a globe of stars for He is the Creator of the Universe—below his feet is the star of Bethlehem. On his head he wears the crown of Kingship with the Star of David and the Holy Cross on his brow. The Divine Child is also robed in a cope, a priestly garment symbolizing His eternal priesthood. Please Note: This statue is available only through the Gift Shop of El Nino here at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama. Statue measures approximately 13 inches in height including base, and is fashioned by artisans in South America. F15531
