for this site is the official prayerbook issued by Our Lady of
Victory Church in Prague. We have ensured that all devotional
material is strictly supported by the Catholic church.

are no plans to have regular updates.

Isn't it considered idoltry to worship the Infant Jesus statue?
A. It has often been misconstrued that Catholics "worship"
statues. Catholics don't "worship" statues, paintings
or anything else that bears a resemblence to either Jesus, Mother
Mary, the Saints or anyone else. This statement which is has been
snipped from the
official Infant Jesus site in Prague clarifies the issue:
is not idolatry, because every faithful knows God dwells into our
hearts, and He is out of reach of mankind, and no image could capture
him or his divine power."
