Antique Religious St Paul of the Cross with Virgin Mary Medal

Antique, religious medal of St Paul of the Cross- the front says S. Paulo Della Croce Ora Pro Nobis or St Paul of the Cross Pray for Us. The back of the medal features the Virgin Mary and says O MARIA CONCETTAS PECATTO P. NOI CHE RICORRIAMO A VOI. This translates to O Mary conceived without sin pray for us who have recourse to you. This is a very old medal, that measures approximately 1 & 1/16ths inches tall with the bail.

  1. Paul the Apostle original name Saul of Tarsus, was a Christian missionary who took the gospel of Christ to the first-century world. He is generally considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age and one of the greatest religious leaders of all time. With this medal, the apostle Paul is being commemmorated and it is believed that his qualities will be bestowed on the wearer.
