This Miraculous Medal Pendant made in Ireland and crafted from 9K Gold. The Medal of the Immaculate Conception, popularly known by Catholics the world over as the Miraculous Medal. The Miraculous Medal has a special place in the hearts of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception, since it paved the way for the Church's official declaration of the dogma in 1854. The medal is striking because Our Lady herself presented the familiar design. The front of the medal depicts Mary standing on a globe, with the head of a serpent beneath her feet. Circling the oval-shaped medal is the signature, "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." On the reverse, twelve stars surround a large "M," from which a cross arises. Below the "M," the medal depicts two flaming hearts. The left heart, circled with thorns, represents Jesus. The right heart, pierced by a sword, symbolizes Mary.
some Catholics believe that wearing the medal with faith and devotion can bring special graces through the intercession of Mary at the hour of death, such items of devotion are not charms and should not be construed as being so, but only serve as constant physical reminders of devotion and Mary's promise.
This Miraculous Medal measures aproximately 27mm x 15mm.
