The dedication to the Child of Atocha began with a medieval statue of the Virgin Mary and child in Toledo, Spain
The dedication to the Child of Atocha began with a medieval statue of the Virgin Mary and child in Toledo, Spain. According to Juan Javier Pescardo, it originally reflected the dedication of three different depictions of the Virgin Mary: The Virgin of Atocha, the Virgin of Antigua, and the Virgin of Pregnancy, which was later merged into the Virgin of Atocha. The child prodigy figure is detachable, and religious families tend to borrow the baby figure when the woman is about to have a baby. In the 13th century, most of Spain was under Muslim rule. The town of Atocha, now part of the Argansuela district of Madrid, was taken over by the Muslims, and many of the Christians there were taken as booty. Christian prisoners were not fed by their jailers, but by their families who brought them food. According to pious legend, the caliphate decreed that only children under 12 were allowed to carry food. For men who do not have children, conditions are becoming more difficult. The women of Atocha prayed in front of a statue of Lady Atocha in a nearby parish, calling her the Virgin Mary and asking for help from her son Jesus. Take a look at our Santo niño de Atocha church statue. This statue is popular with people.

The figure of Santo niño de Atocha church
The Santo niño de Atocha church is depicted as a boy pilgrim wearing a brown cloak and a blue robe with a white lace collar. Wearing a feathered brimmed hat, he carried a basket full of bread in one hand and a pilgrim’s cane in the other. The pilgrim’s walking stick is often depicted with a gourd fixed on it. On his cloak, he wore the shell of St. James, a symbol for pilgrims traveling to the temple of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain. The child is said to wear out his shoes by roaming the hills and valleys, especially at night, bringing help and comfort to those in need. He is usually seated.
