This is a lovely medal that features St Peter the Apostle holding a book and the keys to Heaven. In the Gospel of Matthew 16:19, Jesus says to Peter, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on Earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth shall be loosed in heaven.” The Latin inscription says “Sante Petri Ora P.(ro) Nobis” means “Saint Peter Pray For Us.”
The reverse side shows Blessed Mary holding the infant Jesus. The Latin inscription reads “Mater De Bono Consilio” which means “Our Lady Of Good Counsel.” Our Lady of Good Counsel is a title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary, after a painting said to be miraculous, now found in the thirteenth century Augustinian church at Genazzano, near Rome, Italy. Over the centuries, devotions to Our Lady of the Good Counsel grew among saints and Popes, to the extent that a reference to it was added to the Litany of Loreto and the devotion spread throughout the world. Her feast day is April 26.
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
