Santa Nino de Atocha Children’s Chapel at El Santuario de Chimayó

“In the early 1850’s, Severiano Medina, a member of a well-established and influential family of Chimayo (New Mexico), became seriously ill.

When he recovered he made a pilgrimage, in thankfulness, to the shrine of Santo Niño de Atocha in the town of Plateros in Zacatecas, Mexico.

He returned to Chimayo with a small, papier mache doll of Santo Niño, a manifestation of the Christ Child who is believed to have performed many miracles in Spain and Mexico. Don Medina was given permission to construct a private chapel in which to house the doll. This chapel was completed in 1856 and was instrumental in influencing a large number of devotees to Santo Niño in northern New Mexico.

However, it eventually fell into a state of disrepair and was acquired by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe in 1992. The chapel has since been renovated as a Children’s Chapel with modern artwork but still retaining many of the features of the original chapel. The main altar still houses the original doll brought back by Don Medina from Plateros. “ (El Santuario de Chimayo)

“Santo Niño de Atocha or Holy Child of Atocha is a Roman Catholic image of the Child Jesus popular among the Hispanic cultures of Spain, Latin America, the Philippines and the southwestern United States. It is distinctly characterized by a basket he carries, along with a staff, drinking gourd, and a cape with the shell symbol of a pilgrimage to Saint James.”

                          The Lifecycle of Little Dickens
Made on Monday, ladled on Tuesday, salted on Wednesday, turned out of molds and onto racks this morning.  
Tomorrow the prepubescent buttons move to the cave to mature. During its 2-3 week stint in the cave Little Dickens will undergo a transformation, emerging creamy and flavorful with a covering of cream-colored Geotrichum yeast and white Penicillium molds. Then to be wrapped, labeled, sold, and finally…eaten.
