The Significance of the Medal
The Miraculous Medal is one of the most beloved of all religious medals.
In 1830, the Virgin Mary appeared to a French nun named Sister Catherin Laboure (now a Saint). The Virgin Mary showed Sister Catherin her vision of this exact medal, which she directed to be struck and distributed. The medal includes the Virgin Mary, a cross, two hearts and 12 stars.
The Four Way Medal was created out of a combination of four popular Catholic medals including the Sacred Heart, St. Joseph, St. Christopher and Miraculous Medals.
The Sacred Heart Medal was created commemorate St. Margaret Mary of France. She was born an invalid in the mid 1600's, but the Blessed Virgin Mary cured her. To thank God for this wonderful gift, she promised to give her life to His service. At the age of 17, and after Jesus appeared to her, she entered into the Order of the Visitation to become a nun. Jesus revealed His Sacred Heart to her in four visions. The flames that come forth from His Heart remind us of His burning love for us and His desire that we love Him in return. The crown of thorns around His Heart reminds us of his sacrifice to us to remove our sins. In addition, Jesus made 12 promises to St. Margaret Mary telling her how he would help those who honor His Sacred Heart. St. Margaret Mary wrote, "He showed me that it was His great desire of being loved by men and of withdrawing them from Satan's path of ruin. He promised me that wherever this image should be exposed and honored by men the He would pour forth His blessings".
The St. Christopher Medal was created to commemorate St. Christopher, the patron saint to protect travelers. For people who honor St. Christopher's memory, he protects them from storms and other hardship that they may encounter. The medal depicts St. Christopher safely delivering a child from a raging river. St. Christopher was first recognized for his piety in the 5th century.
The Dove in the center of the medal signifies the Holy Spirit and often symbolizes baptism. The symbolism to baptism comes from the dove that flew over John the Baptist as he was baptizing Christ. The images on the cruciform taught newcomers to Catholicism about the faith and its founders.Access our Pendant Chains here: https://roxxfinejewelry.com/collections/chains
