Vatican Medal of St. Paul + Roma
Item No. A400.101
Trésor Bleu Exclusive
Origin: Vatican, Rome, c. 1968
When we first found this unique medal, we deliberated on whether it would be a good "fit" for Trésor Bleu, because it featured a Pope, not a Saint. This well-known pope became a saint on October 14, 2018. So, here, St. Paul VI. He his renowned for his commitment to the Church and Vatican II. Saint Pope Paul’s greatest accomplishment was the completion and implementation of Vatican II. Its decisions about liturgy were the first ones noticed by most Catholics, but its other documents—especially the ones about ecumenism, interfaith relations, divine revelation, religious liberty, the Church’s self-understanding and the Church’s work with the entire human family—have become the Catholic Church’s road map since 1965.
Trésors blue are pieces of French art and devotion. Also known as "Médailles De Pelerinage" or "Medals of Pilgrimage," these medals have had voyages from another generation, another life, another country. People of faith still undertake pilgrimages as a way of deepening their religious devotion, seeking miracles, spiritual healing, forgiveness, or for the journey itself. The experience is not solely about reaching the end, it is about what is endured, enjoyed, and learned along the way.
