The backside has a textured image of the Oratoire St. Joseph du Mont Royal. Montreal's mountain is called "Mont Royal".
St Joseph is the patron saint of the worker and of Canada. As the Father of Jesus who always gives 100% to God, he represents total humility.
This St. Joseph medal holding the infant Jesus dangles on a 2x3mm cable chain with a lobster clasp closure. Please contact me if you would prefer a different length chain.
The medal is just under 1 inch.
This fine replica is cast in antiqued solid bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A.
Prayer to St. Joseph:
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you, God entrusted His only Son;
in you, Mary placed her trust;
with you, Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us, grace, mercy,
and defend us from every evil.
(From Pope Francis' apostolic letter Patris corde)
A Holy Moments® Artisan piece.
Thank you for visiting my Holy Moments Etsy Shop! This has been my personal shopping account on Etsy for years. I recently decided to open an Etsy shop and display a selection of products from my established Holy Moments on-line and show company (HolyMoments.com).
The artisan jewelry and rosaries are unique to Holy Moments. Many pieces are only a few of a kind due to limited availability of certain gemstones or hand cast items. New, exciting products are always being added to both the Etsy shop and company website.
A portion of profits are donated to the Cancer Research Institute in New York, a leader in immunotherapy research. Please read my shop story for more.
