This medal is from France and features St Veronica holding her veil, which shows the face of Christ. The engraving, Sainte Veronique, is the French spelling of her name.
St Veronica is known as the woman who used a cloth to wipe the sweat and blood from the face of Christ as he was on his way to Calvary. When she removed the cloth, the image of the face of Christ had miraculously appeared in the fabric. According to legend, she later used the cloth to heal the Emperor Tiberius of an unknown disease. The veil is now preserved as a relic in St Peter’s Basilica. Her act of kindness is also remembered as one of the Stations of the Cross.
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.
