This is a beautiful antique religious pendant. It is a Miraculous Medal showing the blessed Virgin Mary on the front.

History of the Miraculous Medal

 

In 1830, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to novice sister Catherine Labouré on several occasions. The Madonna showed St. Catherine a vision and requested that the image shown be struck onto medallions. Our Lady indicated that all who wear these medals will receive great graces.

 

 

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, 12 stars surround a large "M" from which a cross arises. The 12 stars refer to the Apostles, who represent the entire Church as it surrounds Mary. 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.

 

The initials “M.G.” are inscribed on the reverse. Please See Pictures.
