St Donat Medal – Patron Against Lightning – Sterling Silver Antique Replica



Size: approximately 5/8 x 5/8
Material: Sterling silver

This medal shows St Donat dressed as a Roman soldier with the French inscription “St Donat Priez P.N. (Pour Nous)” which means “St Donat Pray For Us.” The lines on the right of the medal represent lightning because St Donat is the patron against lightning.

St Donat is said to be a 2nd-century Roman soldier. At the age of 17, he enlisted in the famed Roman 12th Legion, the Thundering Legion. He rapidly rose through the ranks and soon became a personal bodyguard to the emperor, Marcus Aurelius.
In the year 173 during a battle the 12th Legion was surrounded and nearly overwhelmed when it was miraculously saved by a divine thunderstorm. Legend attributes the miraculous thunderstorm to the prayers of Donat and the many Christians in the Legion. After the miracle, Donat gave thanks to God and was martyred by the emperor.

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.
