This unique figural medal from France shows St Anne holding the young Virgin Mary. St Anne has her finger raised to show she is instructing Mary. At the bottom of the medal are two engravings. The first one is France and the second one is Karo, the maker of the medal.
The back of the medal has the French inscription “S IR (Souvenir) De Sainte Anne De Beaupre” which means “ Souvenir of Saint Anne of Beaupre.” Beaupre is located in Quebec, Canada.
St Anne was the mother of the Virgin Mary and the grandmother of Jesus. Although they are not mentioned in the Bible, Catholic tradition states that Anne and her husband Joaquim had a difficult time conceiving a child. Like several old testament mothers, Anne was visited by an angel who told her that they would have a baby. She then promised to dedicate her child to God. In fulfillment of that vow, her daughter, Mary, was dedicated to the Lord in the temple in Jerusalem at age 3. Images of St Anne traditionally show her teaching Mary since there is a tradition that Mary was an educated young woman
St Anne is the patron of mothers,
women who want to be mothers
people who want children
The medal was cast in sterling silver from an antique medal in the Rosa Mystica Collection so it shows all the beauty and history of the original piece. It comes with a matching holy card in an organza gift bag, ready for gift-giving, and was made in the USA.
