Divino Nino of Bogota
The Divino Nino of Bogota has a fascinating history, which touches us to this day.
We share the story of this exalted Child Jesus as He came to the aid of the poor and sick in Bogota, Colombia, through the work of a Salesian priest, Fr. John Rizzo. He fed the poor, clothed the naked and gave medicine to the sick.
This same Divino Niño spoke to Mother Angelica and told her to build a temple, which today is the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama.
We follow the history of the Divino Niño in Bogota, and then to the United States through the Yes of Mother Angelica. A powerful story
