Milagros also known as “Miracles”
Are found in many parts of Latin America, and used by people to petition saints for help or protection. In many of the churches one can see wooden statues of various saints, the Virgin Mary or Christ. On these figures people often pin small cast metal images (milagros) of hearts,legs,animals,praying figures or other symbols of their prayers. These Milagros serve to remind the saint of the person’s prayers or to thank the saint for prayers that have been answered. Dog, horse or sheep figures may be left to ask for help in healing a sick animal or for fertility. Students may leave an open book asking for divine intervention in their grades. Hearts are often left to thank the saint for answering the prayers of the lovelorn. Each Milagro is specially made for an unique purpose and the variety is enormous.(sold by the dozen)
