This lovely medal features St Jane de Chantal on one side with the Latin inscription “Sanca Joanna De Chantal O(ra) P(ro) N(obis)” which means Saint Jane De Chantal Pray For Us.”
Jane de Chantal was born in 1572. At age 20 she married the Baron of Chantal and had 4 children. Sadly, her husband died eight years later in a hunting accident, and Jane had to live with her father-in-law who was demanding and difficult. She dreamt of a man who would be her spiritual director and recognized him when she met St Francis de Sales. They became friends; and with him, she founded The Order of the Visitation of Our Lady for women who wanted to become a nun, but couldn’t join a typical religious order due to age, health, or other considerations.
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
St Jane de Chantal is the patron of:
Against death of parents
People separated from their children
