Hi everyone,

I found this interesting devotion in the Catholic Church to the infant Theotokos, Maria Bambina

http://www.mariabambina.org/

As an Orthodox Christian, what do you think of this devotion? Just curious.


And, since this is in the Orthodox-Catholic discussion, are there any Catholics on here that have heard of this?

Thank you and Blessings Smiley

Personally, I find it really creepy. Also, I've been taught that we Orthodox venerate saints for their actions. This is why we remember saints on the day of their repose, as opposed to their birthday, to remember their life. I don't think an infant would have done anything considered worthy of veneration.

Never heard of it. Sounds like a folk devotion.

Must I remind everyone of my favorite Saint?

Shall I name everyone's favorite medieval Saint?


Quote
immediately after being born the infant is said to have cried out: "Christianus sum, christianus sum, christianus sum" ("I am a Christian, I am a Christian, I am a Christian"). He went on to further profess his faith, to request baptism, and to ask to be named "Rumwold", afterwards giving a sermon. He predicted his own death, and said where he wanted his body to be laid to rest, in Buckingham.

All within three days. And YOU thought your kid was gifted.

That is amazing. I'd never heard of him and Buckingham's the next town north from my home. I'm going to have to see if there's anything up there still to visit.
