Spanish for "Miracle", Milagros are religious folk charms in some parts of the world.
especially Latin America. They can be found in altars, shrines, or with sacred objects
in places of worship.
Ex-votos (from the Latin phrase ex-voto suscepto, meaning ‘from the vow made’) were carried as devotional objects and to give thanks for granted wishes, prayers and intentions. Also know as Sacred Hearts, they can be traced to the 11th century. They gained popularity in the 17th century when a French nun named Marguerite-Marie Alacoque experienced visions of Jesus Christ, in which he spoke to her and showed her his heart, entwined with thorns and flames and surmounted by a cross. The Sacred Heart became a popular emblem worn for protection against danger and disease.
