Reliquary of St. Bernadette Pendant - c. 1929 (Rare)

$170.00

Item № A800.101

Origin:  France, c. 1929

Rustic old locket which opens on its axis to reveal a small cloth piece which belonged to St. Bernadette.  A reliquary (also referred to as a shrine or by the French term châsse) is a container for relics. These can be actual physical remains of saints, such as bones, pieces of clothing, or some object associated with saints or other religious figures.  St. Bernadette is known for being the quiet, shy teenager who had Mary appear to her over a dozen times at Lourdes, France, in 1858.  Believers and non-believers have sought miracles at Lourdes since 1858.  On the front of the medal are the words, "St. Bernadette Prier por nous," or Saint Bernadette, pray for us.".  On the reverse:  "Maison Mères des Sœurs de la Charite de Nevers - 
Dieu Seul, or... "Convent of the Sisters of the Charity of Nevers - One God."  A truly unique piece to be passed on to generations.

It hangs your choice of chains:  16 to 20 inches, 1 mm gold filled.

Trésors blue are tiny pieces of French art and devotion.  Also known as Médailles De Pelerinage" or "Medals of Pilgrimage," these little medals have had voyages from another generation, another life, another country.  The deep "ultramarine" blue is the sacred color of Mary, representing truth, hope, and faith since 200 AD.  

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.

All trésors bleu are pre-packaged for gifting and shipping is free within the U.S.
