St. Martin de Porres Patron Saint Medal
This handsome, heavy medal measures 1" as shown. An endless (over the head) stainless steel curb chain is standard with the 1" medal. A smaller size, 3/4" medal (preferred by most ladies) is also available with a finer, 18" stainless curb chain. The same medal is available in both sizes in a heavy 14 karat gold filled with or without a goldtone chain, or in solid 14 karat gold, without chain. If the chains provided do not suit, order the medal without chain and check out our Neck Chains for other options, styles, and sizes.
The manufacturer guarantees these medals and, should a defect ever develop, they will replaced them upon receipt of the damaged item. Contact this website for full details and instructions.
Flip-top gift box is included.
Martin de Porres was born in Lima, Peru out of wedlock, the son of a Spanish nobleman and a freed African slave. He trained in the healing arts and barbering. He became a Third Order Lay Dominican Brother and is known to have bilocated, and performed many instantaneous miraculous cures. He had extraordinary powers over animals ... they listened to him and did as he said. He was the friend of St. Rose of Lima. Twenty-five years after his death in 1639, his body was exhumed and found to be incorrupt. It gave off a beautiful fragrance.
DARDEN: you can tell Bliss pictures by their perfect chains. The guy at Bliss said that I can't see much gold because of my machine and its settings. How do you see the second medal below? Does it look gold to you? And, between #1 and #3, which medal would you be inclined to buy? (I re-took St. martin ... it's not the one you put up. This one is less fuzzy). Go to "View" to see them. Just need your opinion. Also, should I put the saints bios into the description? Yea or Nay?
