This is a solid bronze antique replica of a rare medal from the Oratoire St. Joseph in Montreal, Quebec. "Saint Joseph Priez Pour Nous" in French which means St. Joseph Pray for Us. The raised details are highlighted beautifully by the oxidation process. I am blessed to own the original medal, but the oxidation process on this replica makes it even more gorgeous!
The backside has a textured image of the Oratoire St. Joseph du Mont Royal. Montreal's mountain is called "Mont Royal".
This St. Joseph medal holding the infant Jesus dangles on a 2x3mm brass cable chain with a lobster clasp closure. The necklace is 20 inches long, but please contact me if you would prefer a different length.
The medal is just under 1 inch.
This fine replica is cast in antiqued solid bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A.
Prayer to St. Joseph:
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you, God entrusted His only Son;
in you, Mary placed her trust;
with you, Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us, grace, mercy,
and defend us from every evil.
(From Pope Francis' apostolic letter Patris corde)
