Who is the Holy Child of Atocha?

Holy Child of Atocha

The Holy Child of Atocha is Jesus, represented in his childhood years with a very particular image that defines his cult. It is estimated that the original figure of the Santo Niño de Atocha is located in the Santuario del Señor de los Plateros, Fresnillo Zacatecas, Mexico. Among his characteristics, we can see the boy dressed as a pilgrim on the Camino de Santiago, wearing his hat, a cape, a scallop shell on his chest and wearing sandals; in his left hand he holds a cane from which hangs an alcuza where he keeps water and some ears of wheat; in his right hand he holds a basket and is sitting on a chair.

The history of the Holy Child of Atocha says that there was a time when Muslims invaded the city of Atocha in Spain, imprisoning many Christians without even allowing them to be visited by their family or friends, so they lacked even the most basic things, such as water and the food. Then, Jesus himself decided to accompany them in his misfortune, transfiguring himself into his childish facet. At night he accessed the place, he offered them comfort and food that he carried in his basket. The most curious characteristic of the little boy was that no matter how much he distributed water and bread, his basket and canteen were always full.

His legend originates from that moment, being personified as a pilgrim boy whose cult moved to America through the European workers who emigrated to Mexico, specifically to the city of Plateros, when the silver mines were discovered in that region. Around this time, he is also credited with taking care of the miners, especially those who get trapped in the mines by some kind of unfortunate situation. But, his adoration does not stop there, he enjoys great recognition worldwide as a quite miraculous saint.
