The Blessed Mother appeared to St Bernadette Soubiroux in 1858, shortly after the Church defined the dogma that Mary was conceived in her mother's womb without original sin. She told Bernadette "I am the Immaculate Conception," which meant nothing to our dear saint as she was 15 and very poorly educated. But God uses the small and weak to confound the proud and strong. Miraculous healing waters were provided by Mary at Lourdes and are still flowing today.
This ornament is a print of a painting by Sue Kouma Johnson of acrylics and colored pencils, which image we include here. The print is also available.
The same image is on both sides.
All of our pendants and ornaments are made with lead free solder and glass. Greaton a chain or bracelet. We offer a ball chain elsewhere in our shop.
If you put the charm/medal on a key chain, it may get broken if not treated kindly. It is glass. If you want one for a key chain, we can custom make your medium charm/medal with a thicker glass for $3. Small charm/medals don't need thicker glass, but either way, they need to be on a chain before you add them to your key ring.
