Beautiful bronze antique replica Saint Roch (Rocco) Medal dangles from a bronze cable chain. A lobster clasp closure completes the piece. The antiqued finish is gorgeous!
Saint Roch is the patron saint of epidemics and the plague. He was marked with a red cross on his chest at birth. St. Roch devoted his life to helping the plague-stricken and sick. His miraculous powers cured many with the Sign of the Cross. He is also the patron saint of dogs.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a type of epidemic, so this St. Roch medal and prayer (in photos) is very appropriate for our times!
This fine replica is cast in solid bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A.
The necklace is available in 16, 18 or 20 inches long. Please contact me if you would like a different length. The medal is 3/4 inch.
