This beautiful gold finished Miraculous Medal is a low cost option for those ladies who prefer to wear gold colored jewelry.
The delicate gold finished chain is 18" long, with a lobster jewelry clasp. The medal is approximately one inch tall, which is the standard size for a Miraculous Medal. This pretty piece will keep its bright finish longer if you take it off before showering and freshen it up with jewelry cleaner.
The Miraculous Medal was brought to us by Saint Catherine Laboure in 1832, after the Blessed Mother appeared to her in a little convent in Paris.
Our heavenly Mother asked Catherine to have the medal struck in honor of her Immaculate Conception. Many devout souls have since worn the Medal, and some have experienced great miracles through the use of blessed medals. Hence the name, Miraculous Medal.
We always recommend that you get your medals blessed by a Catholic priest to receive the full blessings of wearing a medal. Wearing a medal is a form of prayer, in which you can benefit even without always consciously praying.
