Handmade St Peregrine Medal on Chain, Patron Cancer Patients and Those Cured
I design, carve, and cast the medals myself. The medals are made of lead-free pewter and have designs on both sides. The medal comes on either an 18-inch or 24-inch chain with a lobster clasp. Each necklace comes in a felt jewelry pouch with a history card that states:
"St. Peregrine (1260-1345) was born wealthy, lived a dissolute early life. During a dispute, he struck St. Philip Benizi on the face. St. Philip turned the other cheek, and Peregrine converted. Joined the Servite order and for thirty years, as penance, lived and worked as much as possible in silence and solitude. Later in life, he developed skin cancer on his foot, was scheduled for surgery. He spent the night before the operation in prayer; had a vision of Christ healing him with a touch to his foot. Next morning, Peregrine was healed. Hundreds of miracles of healing have been attributed to Peregrine, who was canonized in 1726. This pewter medal of Peregrine was handmade by Hank Schlau."
Dimensions of medal: 1.5 inches across (it's a large medallion)
