Catholic Medals

What is the Catholic Medals?

Catholic medals are a wonderful way to commemorate your faith and to carry a symbol of God's love for you. There are so many Catholic medals to choose from that it can be a challenge to settle on the one or two medals that you wish to wear. Some people choose to have a few medals hung on a single chain, or on their keyrings and for others their rosary is the perfect home for a particularly treasured Catholic medal.

Another less known use of Catholic medals is that they are sometimes placed into the foundations of new buildings. The idea is that the symbolic protection of the medal is imbued into the new building as well.

History of Catholic Medals

The practice of wearing religious medals has been a tradition of the church since its earliest days. Since around the year 350, it has been traditional to gift a religious medal to a newly baptized member of the church to celebrate their rebirth into the family of Christ.

Archaeologists have found custom medals bearing the likenesses of both Saint Peter and Saint Paul that have been dated as belonging to the second century. St Lawrence the Martyr has been found on medals from the fourth century.

Popes of old have been recorded as having sent medals as a gift for kings and queens. These were meant as reminders of their duty to rule as Christian monarchs. This led to many people seeking to have their own medals blessed

Catholic medals are considered sacramental. This means that they are sacred signs that bear resemblances to the sacraments. They serve as symbols of the protection and love invested in the images they portray. They are a physical reminder of the love that we share with God and the saints, much as a wedding ring is a physical reminder of the love between spouses.

Type of Catholic Medals

There are a lot of different types of Catholic medals. Each variety has its own meaning and story, and each type can also be found in many different designs. Here are the stories of some of the most varieties.

Miraculous Medal – The design for this medal dates back to 1830. The holy mother revealed the design for the medal to St Catherine Labourne so that all who wear this medal will receive the graces of the Our Lady. These medals are traditionally oval shaped with the figure of the Blessed Virgin Mary surrounded by the words “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee”

Saint Christopher Medal– Possibly one of the most well-known Catholic medals is the Saint Christopher. They are a popular gift for people who travel a lot. Saint Christopher is best known for carrying a boy safely across a turbulent river, despite his unusually heavy weight. When asked the boy tells Saint Christopher that he is so heavy because he is Christ and he is weighed down by the weight of the sins he bears. These medals most often depict Saint Christopher carrying the boy on his back.

4 Way Catholic Medal – This type of medal is becoming more popular. It is a great option for people who can’t decide on one medal and want to wear a cross but don’t want to have multiple medals on a single chain. This medal comes in the shape of the cross with a medal design on each of the four ends of the cross. You can choose which designs you would like making this a very versatile option with many different incarnations.

Sacred Heart Medal – One of the most sacred devotion is the one made to Jesus’ physical heart. This medal symbolizes the unending divine love of Jesus for all of humanity. The traditional design is a depiction of Jesus bearing his heart to the world. This medal is sometimes double-sided. On the reverse can be found a depiction of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Saint Benedict Medal – Saint Benedict was a devout man and spent many years living as a hermit in a cave. Following the death of an abbot in a nearby community, some of the people asked Saint Benedict to become their new leader. Some of the people were unhappy with this choice so tried to poison Saint Benedict with wine and bread. When he made the sign of the cross over the food and drink before he ate, it was revealed to him that it was poisoned. It is for this reason that the Saint Benedict’s medal is considered to offer protection from poison of the body mind and soul.

Custom Catholic Medals

As there are so many options for Catholic medals it can be hard to choose which one is the perfect one for you. Getting a customized Catholic medal can be a great way to solve this dilemma. You can design your own Catholic medal that gives you exactly the look and feel you desire.

Customized Catholic medals can be a great idea for your church community. You could design a medal that has special meaning for your community. They would make wonderful gifts for those who are baptized into the church or who are confirmed. Knowing that the medal they receive is not only a symbol of God’s love but also of their church community will make it a special gift that will be treasured for a lifetime and will help the seed of faith to flourish.
