Love is the beauty of the soul

Milagros are tiny miracles. I created a new Milagro cross for my etsy shop!

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.
Saint Augustine

Delightful symbolic charms commonly used in Mexican churches for thankful offerings after a miraculous prayer has been granted. Also used in focusing attention towards a specific ailment, based on the type of charm used.

Milagros were pinned, glued, or hung to adorn the Holy statues around the churches. Believers also carry them in their cars, pockets and keep them in their homes for protection and blessings.
