Sto. Niño Exhibit: More Images of the Holy Child

Some of the images at the Sto. Niño exhibited showed what happened when Jesus grew up and fulfilled his mission on earth.

One particular image caught my attention because of its appearance.  It's called the Sto. Niño de Passion, which shows the Holy Child holding a crucifix in one hand, and a crown of thorns and nails in the other.  The expression on the Niño's face is so pained, as if contemplating on his future sacrifice for us.   I can't help but feel feel sad for the child.  

The other images portrayed the different titles given to the Child Jesus, including the Sto. Niño del Espiritu Santo,  Sto. Niño del Sagrada Eucharistia and Sto. Niño dela Cruz y Paz.

But no matter what title is bestowed upon the Holy Child, He will grow up into Jesus Christ, the good shepherd, the King and Savior of mankind.
