Saint Maria Goretti was twelve when a young man tried to seduce her. Maria refused, and he stabbed her. As she lay dying in the hospital, she forgave him, and prayed that he would be with her in Heaven. He was at her canonization, after 27 years of imprisonment, a convert to the faith by Maria's prayers. He gave evidence for her canonization, and became a Capuchin lay brother. She is a Patroness of Youth, and because her attacker was a pornography user, she is an important saint for purity in these modern times.This charm is from a painting Sue did with acrylics and colored pencils, which image we include here just to give more context. The print is also available.
All our pendants are made with lead free solder and glass. Great on a chain or bracelet. We offer a ball chain elsewhere in the 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 $2. 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.
All of our jewelry orders are sent gift wrapped as shown, and we include a holy card of Sue's drawing of Pope Francis!
