Infant Jesus and Mother Mary — St. Michael’s Church, Madikeri

There are two glass-encased shrines on either side of the seating area that are lovely and are an ideal focus for meditation, contemplation and prayer.  On the left side is a glass-encased statue of Infant Jesus.

The statue of Infant Jesus has a crossed globe in His left hand with His right hand raised on supplication.  He is wearing a cross-topped crown and adorned with a jeweled red robe with a lace covering over His shoulders and neck.  The glass enclosure also provides a container for petitioners’ contributions.  Along the right wall of the seating area is a similar glass-enclosure holding statues of Mother Mary holding Baby Jesus.  These images are wearing leaf-green robes and golden crowns.
