This is a shiny gold antique replica of a very rare and beautiful Saint Charles Borromeo medal from France. Around the border is in Latin, "Sancte Charles Borromee OPN (Ora Pro Nobis)" meaning "Holy Saint Charles Bommoreo Pray for Us". I am blessed to have this original piece signed by the French artist Louis Tricard in my collection and be able to share it with you at a reasonable price. I have included a picture of the page from the Collectors Medallion book with this medal.

St Charles Borromeo is the patron saint of stomach ailments, dieting and weight loss. He is also the patron saint of bishops, catechists, seminarians, spiritual directors and spiritual leaders. As the Cardinal Archbishop of Milan, he is well known for his love of feeding the poor and for his heroic response in administering sacraments during the plague as many priests were taking shelter.

Incredible detailing on this piece of art!

The medal is 3/4 inch round and dangles on a textured cable chain necklace with a lobster clasp closure. Please contact me if you would prefer a different chain style.

This fine replica is cast in solid gold bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A. Gold bronze does not contain gold, but is a yellow version of the more common red bronze. Gold bronze does require periodic polishing using a cloth, more or less depending on usage, such as wearing in water. With polishing, it will stay shiny gold since this piece is solid (not plated). A polishing cloth is included.

This medal is available in .925 sterling silver and bronze as well. Please see this link to view options.

Prayer to St. Charles Borromeo for Stomach Ailments
O St. Charles, you are invoked as
the patron of all those who suffer
with stomach ailments and obesity.
You are also called upon as a helper
for all those attempting to diet and lose weight.
Please intercede for me today
and help me to control
my desires and compulsions,
so that I may fix my appetite
on the glory of Heaven.
